Review #1618 – Bowling & Burch Gin

The Schtick: Ginvitational Day 15! Distilled at Limestone Branch Distillery using 17 botanicals, this New American style gin is pretty interesting. One notable facet of this is that Bowling & Burch uses a lot of botanicals sourced from on their property, though they do not disclose which ones. Let’s get to it.

Review #1618 | Gin Review #42

Distiller: Limestone Branch

Bottler: Limestone Branch

Brand: Bowling & Burch

Selection: N/A

ABV: 48% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Sweet cream, peppercorns, juniper, orange peel and papaya. Rich sweetness that goes so well with the pepper. Faint prick of ethanol.

Taste: Rich palate though with some heat. Sweet juniper, anise, orange peel, pepper and rising bread. Really prominent lemon curd note. Complex.

Finish: Short and a bit chemical but also loaded with a really fun blueberry note that pairs well with pepper, lots of juniper and some bay leaf.

Overall: Without being too sweet this is delightfully fruity, reigned in by a strong juniper character. I like it a lot, and if not for a little wrinkle here or there, this would likely reach beyond a 7, which is already great. Awesome stuff here.

Thanks for reading!
