Proof66 Notes

Deepwells Botanical gin is made from a base distillate of locally grown potatoes, more in the style of boutique potato vodkas rather than the neutral grain spirit employed by the vast majority of gins on the market. To us, this implies an earthy, rustic background note for the botanicals. The botanicals—all 28 of them!—are immersed in the high-proof potato distillate in a maceration (that is, a good thorough soaking). The sell sheet provides the list of botanicals, including almond, apple, anise, basil, chamomile, cinnamon, coriander, cubeb, cucumber, elderflower, fennel, grains or paradise, grapefruit, honeysuckle, juniper, lavender, lemon, licorice, lime, merlot leaf, nutmeg, orange, orris, pansy, pineapple, spearmint, and watermelon. This is a fascinating and complex mix of botanicals and may be the first gin we've ever seen use watermelon in some way or other and owing to that mix we classify it as a modern gin. The name "deepwell" refers to the Magothy Aquifer from which they get their water.

Long Island Spirits considers itself Long Island's first craft distillery and is on the site of a "beautifully restored" barn right on a potato farm. The barn itself is attributed to the early 1900s built by brothers Henry and John Columbus of Polish descent but were ruined in the Depression. After changing owners a few times it was renovated and rebuilt at the turn of the this century and Long Island Spirits opened in 2006.
