Anchor Junipero Gin 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Junípero Gin is made by hand in the classic "distilled dry gin" tradition, utilizing morethan a dozen botanicals in their natural state, in a small copper pot still at our littledistillery on Potrero Hill in San Francisco. The history of gin goes back at least to the mid-1600's in Holland, but its true antecedents are much earlier, those first experiments in the ancient and mysterious art of distilling in the presence of herbs and spices. The predominant flavor and aroma of a modern gin will always come from juniper (dried berries of the "common juniper," Juniperus communis). But the wonderful challenge for the distiller is in selecting and blending from a wide variety of additional, exotic botanicals in order to impart a uniquely satisfying, balanced character to his gin. At Anchor Distilling we have taken delight in the adventure of researching and experimenting with many such botanicals. Our final formula must remain a secret, but we hope you will agree that we have achieved a distinctive, intriguing complexity in our Junípero Gin: light and crisp and clean, combining a deep and mysterious spiciness with subtle delicacy.

Go directly to tasting this smashing, luscious, herbal and spirity gin...thats where all the action is. The juniper flavors evolve in stages.Junipero Gin is distilled by the makers of Anchor Steam Beer in San Francisco. It is a sensational, small-batch spirit, alembic distilled and flavored with more than a dozen botanicals. It is a light, spicy and immensely flavorful gin. It has a crisp, lean character and a long, lingering finish. Junipero is bottled at 98.6 proof, but is so refreshing you won't notice its elevated alcohol content.
