Washhouse Distillery Barrel Aged Gin is the result of tinkering around with second use wine barrels, and just happened to evolve into something pretty special along the way…
We rest our award-winning citrus gin within a former chardonnay barrel, sourced from one of New Zealand’s oldest boutique wineries in the beautiful Ararimu Valley. During the ageing process, our signature botanicals evolve as the French oak flavour enriched walls impart both character and depth to the recipe through infusion of wood flavours, flavours from that years’ vintage, and often, from the infusion of fresh fruits.
With a lot of patience, and a bit of magic of our own, the result is a delectably smooth but drinkable gin that allows our botanicals to shine and the citrus aromas to carry through with buttery infusions of toasted hazelnut and light hints of cream on the palate.
