Proof66 Notes

Journeyman Bilberry Black Hearts gin is made from an organic wheat distillate. Along with eight other (we presume more traditional) botanicals, the signature flavor in gin is the bilberry--which they note is called the "black-heart" in Thomas Hardy's Victorian novel Return of the Native. They call the bilberry a "cousin" to huckleberries and bilberries, which they harvest from wild-growing plants.

We had a chance to try this gin at Distill America 2013 in Madison, WI. This declares itself so strongly for the “billberry” (think blueberry / huckleberry) that it’s almost--but not quite--a berry flavored gin. Outstanding in tonic water they particularly recommend it with a muddled lime. Where the flavored vodkas are only getting crasser, the billberry gin is all class.
