Proof66 Notes

Cardinal gin is made of ingredients that are "all organic and the most fresh in the world."It is a batch distilled gin made in a traditional 100 gallon copper pot still. Along with the traditional distillation, Southern Artisan Spirits uses a modern-style stainless steel vat and induction heating when distilling their product for quality control and flavor. They call it a "western style" gin, which we have listed here as "modern" to suggest a deemphasis on the traditional juniper profile.

The 2012 Beverage Testing Institute regards it as an "almost feminine gin" and recommend it as an introduction for "non-gin drinkers." 

Southern Artisan Spirits is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. They're a craft distillery that uses all locally grown and organic ingredients for their products.

A distinctive gin for when I want something a little different. And it's made right here in my home state! Great gin that brings the juniper, but with a heavy dose of spearmint. I like it in a gin and tonic with a sprig of mint, although I've found that it takes an extra wedge of lime to balance out the flavors. Attractive bottle and label design looks great on the bar. A high quality, small batch spirit.

Like alot of the "modern" gins that are afraid of juniper. Some are interesting enough to me to pull it off but this is no Hendricks. An ok and certainly spicy gin but not for traditional gin drinkers.

I really, really like this gin. It's an adventurous departure from classic, uniper gins. It has a fresh, peppery and exotic taste that pucnhes up all the cocktails you typically think of. I particularly enjoyed it with orange bitters and tonic water.
