Founded in 2015, Round Turn Distilling is located on the coast of Maine in a 150 year old textile mill. Bimini Gin is made and bottled by hand.
The Bimini name was inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s novel “Islands in the Stream” set in the 1930s on the island of Bimini in the Bahamas. The main character drinks gin with coconut water, lime, and angostura bitters while relaxing in the shade on his boat.
Filtration removes more of some botanical oils than others, which means Bimini Overproof has a different balance of flavors than regular Bimini Gin. In particular, the juniper is more robust upfront and the hops more clearly defined in the middle palate.
