Proof66 Notes

Junipero Traditional Pot-Still Gin is a self-described "classic" gin, made with the traditional dominant characteristic of juniper but including an additional dozen botanicals producing a "light, crisp and clean" gin with a "deep and mysterious spiciness."

Anchor Brewers & Distillers was founded as Anchor Brewing Company and is somewhat of an iconic beer brand, creating a great deal of enthusiasm for the craft-brewing movement in general.

Outside of fruity flavored vodkas and liqueurs, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more feminine looking bottle. But make no mistake, the juice inside is FAR from feminine tasting. Nose is all juniper with a nice touch of citrus that helps balance everything out. This is perfect for a dry Martini and G&T! The taste is full of juniper with lemon, grapefruit, and black pepper spice. I also love that this is 49.3% - 98.6 proof. A little pricier ($30/bottle) than Tanqueray or Beefeater, but if you feel like splurging, I highly recommend this gin!

Definitely intense almost licorice juniper flavor. Name says it all.

Love love love Junipero. I am admittedly a big fan of juniper, so this was the straight ticket for me. Bold, crisp and unashamedly botannical, this makes the best martini I've had in quite a while, a fabulous G&T and is quite smart for sipping as well.

Outstanding gin. Great, intense juniper flavor, neither weak nor mediciney. The best I've tried yet.
