Barrel Spice Gin
~ Rob Gugin ~
Moonshining was a lucrative enterprise during Alberta’s Prohibition period. Territorial rivalries amongst “Shiners” inspired recipe variations with different flavor profiles to create demand for their own “brand”. Local Rumrunners would transport Moonshine by rail in oak casks and barrels often bribing or threatening to ensure the safe conveyance of these coveted spirits. Our Barrel Spice Distilled Gin is a tributary throwback to this era using an authentic outlaw recipe comprising vintage proprietary botanicals and spices, subdued and complemented by oak barrel-resting.
