Gin - Modern
Uncle Val's Botanical Gin
This is a Tier 2 score in the Gin category. It means critics have highly recommended the spirit as a benchmark in the category.
35 Maple Street is the distilled spirits arm of Calinfornia-Based The Other Guys wine-makers, a 4-generation family-owned business that started a new wine compay--TOG--in 2004 (the original family winery sold in 2008). The company is run by 4th generation descendent August Sebastiani.
From the press release, Uncle Val's Botanical gin is named for August Sebastiani's "favorite uncle" Valerio Cechetti: a physician, gardener, and chef. The botanicals of juniper, cucumber, lemon, sage, and lavender were common ingredients in his kitchen. Weve opted to list this as a modern-styled gin for the presence of cucumber and lavender.
The label is owned and managed by California-based 35 Maple Street who appear to source the gin, according to the filing with the federal Tax and Trade Bureau, with Bendtillery of Oregon (indeed, the marketing website brags of Cascade Mountain water).
