Description
This limited release Humdinger Gin is made by aging a blend of their award-winning Dry and Citrus gin in a used bourbon barrel for 3 months. A bold aroma of citrus and oak are noticeable as soon as this bottle is opened. When tasting, candied citrus opens this gin, followed by a spicy oak body and a long complex finish.

The Barrel
Barton 1792 Distillery - Bardstown, Kentucky, USA.
Once-used American Oak Bourbon Barrel, 3 months aged. American Oak is hearty & strong, thus imparting more of a spicy, coconut, clove taste profile. This is why it's used for Merlot & Syrah wines.

Distilling
Every step of the Humdinger way, quality is always considered first - not cost, nor time, but quality. Their hand-made 10L copper still from Portugal is where every Humdinger recipe started as an idea, before being fine-tuned and graduating onto the larger stills. With flexibility and opportunity at the forefront of its design their refiner features a 50L copper pot, a 3-plate column, a generous botanical basket and a few secret modifications, providing limitless possibilities for the art of distillation. Humdinger has a six-hour distillation, one of continuous monitoring that takes generous heads and tails cuts, leaving only a heart of the highest quality that will be rested and mellowed before progressing to bottling.

About
A quality gin doesn’t happen by accident and quality botanicals are a key element in a Humdinger gin. It began with a few loose words, a fair bit of encouragement, some wild imaginings and a decent dose of bravado. A copper still followed and Geraldine’s first distillery was established in 2020 Passionate about sharing the art of distillation and Humdinger Gin with the world, Andrew and Saskia are doing it for the love of gin.
