Tasting Notes

Aroma: Slightly vanilla tinged with heady notes of grilled mushroom, wet leaves, and a hint of anise and baking spice.

(The Gin Is In) Loch & Union’s Barley Gin wears the barley on its sleeve. The nose is full of classic hallmarks of malted barley. It’s slightly funky, slightly warming, and especially in the case of Barley Gin— it’s really nice. And balanced as well. Aromatics from the botanicals come through and add intrigue and depth. Notes of orange, cocoa, anise, and resiny juniper lie just under the surface.

Barley Gin is aromatically complex, but it’s primarily about the grain.

Palate: Grain and Madagascar vanilla bean husk early, juniper and cocoa beans mid-palate with orange and raspberry on the finish. 

Barley Gin takes a second to hit the palate. There’s a slight hint of grain and vanilla early. The creaminess segues into a mid-palate where the botanicals really roar. Juniper is a secondary player here, but present.
