New Riff Distilling’s Kentucky Wild Gin is thoughtfully crafted with local wild foraged Kentucky botanicals, capturing the native flavors of the Ohio Valley and reflecting historical Kentucky gin ingredients. Twelve botanicals are distilled right in the pot, including a range of typical European gin ingredients (such as angelica, orris and licorice root, and three kinds of citrus). To these they add two local, farmer-foraged wild seasonings, including a wild juniper berry and the amazing American Spicebush, plus a bit of Kentucky’s state flower: goldenrod. The base spirit includes a dash of our new make rye whiskey spirit, enriching the texture and lengthening the flavor. Bottled at 94 proof, the New Riff Kentucky Wild Gin Bourbon Barreled makes a fantastic Gin Cocktail with the bitters of your choice. Try it also in a Martinez—basically, a Manhattan made with our gin in the place of whiskey—delicious as the borders between gin and whiskey fade away.
