Proof66 Notes

Barrel Aged Big Gin takes their traditional dry and ages it for a period of time in ex-bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill Distilleries of Kentucky, a newer technique becoming popular among gin makers. We take this to mean there will be an oak-driven caramel and vanilla quality (along with a light color) to the juniper forward London Dry. In this case, an addition of peat smoke!

Big Gin is the first release from Captive Spirits made in the tradition of the London Dry style. They describe it as having a "burnt orange and juniper nose." According to the detailed write-up at Seattle Met, the distillate comes from 100% corn, which is a bit unusual in the gin world, where a lot of the distillate uses wheat, rye, or barley. We're told Captive Spirits aims for the most neutral flavor profile possible with the corn grain to help showcase the botanicals. The distillate is imported from Kentucky and then infused and blended down on site. The name is in honor of Ben Capdevielle's father known as "Big Jim."

Captive Spirits is a Washington-based company run by Ben Capdevielle, Todd Leabman, and Holly Robinson.
