American Gin!
cap, captain miss america

Yesterday, I was going through my liquor cabinet, and I decided to sort my gin by region, when I discovered that out of 15 different gins (not counting my saved-for-special-occasion bottle of Tanqueray Malacca), 9 of them are from the United States.

So my mother and I had an impromptu little gin tasting. Here are all our gins arranged geographically!

The gins in question are:
Greylock , from Berkshire Mountain Distillers, Great Barrington, MA
Gale Force, from Triple 8 Distillers, Nantucket, MA
Seneca Drums, from Finger Lakes Distillers, Burdett, NY
Bluecoat American Dry, from Philadelphia Distilling, Philadelphia, PA
Jin, from Dogfish Head Brewers, Rehoboth, DE
Death’s Door, from Death’s Door Spirirs, Washington Island, WI
Desert Juniper, from Bendistillery, Bend, OR
Rogue Spruce, from Rogue Ales, Newport, OR
DH Krahn, from DH Krahn Spirits, Mountain View, CA

My mother and I tasted 1/4 oz tastings of each gin in the order listed above. Here are our findings!

These details are fabulous! Thanks for the reviews. I'm always interested in flavor profiles.

You're welcome! I just love tasting lots of the same thing all at once and comparing them. It really makes you realize how different two of the same food can be in a way that you don't always notice when you are eating them individually.

you sure do know a lot about liquor...

lol... that is awesome. Personally, I can't stand the taste of gin though. But it sounds like you and your mom had fun!!!

Well, not all gins taste the same, which I think we proved here! If you don't really like gin, I would try the Dogfish Head Jin and see how you like that. If you just don't like liquor in general, I can't do much for you!

Dogfish Head Jin... I will have to look into it. Thanks for the heads up! I like liquor... perhaps a little too much, if you catch my meaning... so I severely limit my intake. :-)

I love liquor! But I usually only have one or two cocktails a night, or a cocktail and a glass of wine, and usually only on the weekends or if I'm out.

And yeah, the Dogfish Head tastes pretty rummy; it's more fruity than most gins.
