We're kicking the year (and decade) off with quite an exciting tasting. We are going to get into a Cask Aged Gin tasting.
Over the last couple of years there have been a few cask aged gins that are hitting the market from a range of smaller distilleries that are pushing the boundaries. We shall be looking at a few different wood finishes from Sherry casks to Whisky casks and asking 'why would you do that?'
Perhaps the most interesting part of the tasting is that we shall compare what the gins taste like before and after being aged in the chosen cask. This way we shall really be able to taste the differences and what the cask ageing process brings to the table.
All of the cask aged examples that we shall be tasting through are highly limited with very short runs - which will also make it quite an exciting tasting.
