Proof66 Notes

Crater Lake Gin is a return to the "original flavor for gin," which is juniper, according to Bendistillery. They use handpicked juniper berries from the Cascade Mountains--a bit of a departure from the "botanicals" that are customarily used in many gins--which also gives the gin a very pale, yellow cast. The gin was formerly known as Cascade Mountain Gin.

Bendistillery was founded in 1996, which is relatively early in the craft-distilling business and they regard themselves as one of the forerunners of the movement. It was founded with the express purpose of crafting gin and vodka made with natural ingredients and pure Cascade Mountain water. In addition to their own spirits, they craft some spirits on a private label basis.

A very pleasing gin for Martinis. It doesnt have the complexity of taste that I normally like, but it has enough. Along with Desert Juniper, Bend Distillery makes some excellent gin.

A great gin for those old and/or classic recipes calling for a American or Dutch gin (as opposed to a London Dry). But do remember this is a 95 proof not 80 proof gin when mixing or consuming. At around $25 bottle for 95 proof it is also on of the cheaper quality gins available.

I don't care what the professional say about this gin... I really, really like it. It's one of the only things out there that has a legitimate, juniper flavor and it's absolutely beautiful in a martini.
