Proof66 Notes

Black Dot Gin comes with the apt marketing slogan of "no fab, no fuss, no frills" and a black dot that simply represents their spot on the Wisconsin state map. The gin itself begins life as their corn-based vodka and given a vapor infusion of 6 botanicals including the requisite juniper, lime, cucumber, coriander, orris, and angelica. This strikes us a slightly modern take on the traditional London-dry style with the citrus and cucumber flavors adding to the more traditional components. Naturally, they recommend it in a Gimlet (a Martini with a does of lime and sugar). The "vapor infusion" is a process of distilling the vapors through a basket of botanicals as opposed to a "maceration," which means soaking the botanicals in the finished spirit after it comes off the still. They feel this gives it a distinctive flavor. It is bottled at a very light and easy-drinking 80 proof (many gins on the market are "cocktail strength" at 90 proof or better).

Black Dot Gin is owned and managed by Black Dot Spirits but is registered with the 2014 filing with the US Tax and Trade Bureau as originating with Yahara Bay Distillers of Wisconsin, which we have listed here as the producer.
