Review #1682 – Durham Distillery Conniption Gin

The Schtick: Durham Distillery Conniption Gin is an interesting by product of innovation and labwork. This American Dry Gin is produced using a two step process, first a distilling with standard infusion and a second vacuum distillation to add cucumber, citrus and honeysuckle. I can’t say I’ve experienced something liket his before, so I’m looking forward to diving in. Let’s get to it.

Review #1682 | Gin Review #60

Distiller: Durham Distillery

Bottler: Durham Distillery

Brand: Durham Distillery

Selection: N/A

ABV: 44% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Clove, pepper, funky, bitter, garlicy. Tons of cucumber and floral vegetation.

Taste: Sweet on the palate, a total departure from the nose. Chili pepper, salt, honey, juniper, lime and jalapeno. Weird, to say the least.

Finish: Short, hot, really not my style. Pepper and hot with a really bready, bell pepper forward profile.

Overall: Super unique, wild and out there, but not for me. Reminds me of a bizarre, sub-par Tepeztate with watermelon rind. The honeysuckle refuses to be ignored. This is a little too Spinal Tap of Gin for me.

Thanks for reading!
