Proof66 Notes

Golden Moon gin is made in a style from the early 1900s. This, to us, means a grain-forward profile popular in genever gins but with a heavy juniper note associated with traditional London Dry style (we have opted to list it as a traditional dry gin). It is infused with juniper harvested locally from the front range of the Rocky Mountains. The name "Golden" is in reference to the city of Golden, Colorado.

Golden Moon Distillery as founded in 2008 and by Stephen Gould--veteran of the food and beverage industry as well as university professor--to specialize in herbal liqueurs in honor of styles prominent in the 19th century. It was formerly Maison de la Vie of Ohio but has since moved locations to Colorado in 2010. Gould claims ownership of what he calls a "world class research library containing hundreds of rare books on distillation... some dating back to the 1500s."

I just tasted a glass of this Gin at a competition in Europe. I've no idea where to purchase it here in the States yet, but I need to find one. This is literally the best Gin I've ever tasted. It's unique in that it doesn't quite fit into any traditional Gin category, but it is absolutely a Gin. It mixes extremely well, but is smooth enough to be enjoyed streight too. Excellent!

I don't know how any judge could say it had a "beery" background. It is absolutely the most beautiful gin out there Makes Tangueray and Beefeaters and the other usual gins out there taste like water. The botanicals are brilliant and I was instantly hooked. Truly a lovely way to enjoy a G&T and my neighbor who is a martini drinker was instantly hooked. The bad news is that you can only buy it in CO or order it from Applejacks in Wheatridge, CO
