McHenry - Barrel Aged Gin
Our much loved Barrel Aged Gin is inspired by the gins of old. Traditionally gin was stored in oak barrels, transported in barrels and often served from barrels. At McHenry Distillery we have recreated an authentic pre-industrial age gin. This gin is aged in 24 hand selected American Oak Russel’s Reserve 200 litre bourbon barrels.
Made in Australia’s oldest gin solera, the gin is carefully transferred half a barrel at a time through the 24 barrels making up the solera. After 12 months the end result is a gin that’s smooth and glorious to drink.
When tasting the gin you’ll notice the delicate hints of oak, vanilla and whisky notes forward on the palate, but with the unmistakable resonance of gin.
This Gin is simply divine on its own, over ice or used it in a cocktail to make a modern style Old Fashioned.
