Aviation Gin Arrives for Review
Last week we mentioned a cocktail recipe called Beer's Knees, which features hefeweizen and Aviation gin. Since then, the fine folks at Aviation have sent us along a bottle for review. You've probably heard of Aviation, but if you haven't it's batch-distilled gin from Portland, OR and it's probably a bit different from the gins you've had in the past.
This American gin still features juniper, but not as prominently as you might expect if your only experience is London Dry. Other botanicals include orange peel, cardamom, anise, lavender and sarsparilla, blended to make for a different drinking experience than you might expect. We plan to mix some cocktails and do a full review sometime soon, and if you're looking to pick some up it clocks in at 84 proof (42% ABV) and retails in the neighborhood of $30 for 750ML.
"Sip from the Bottle" Aviation Gin Review: The nose is more floral and citrusy without packing an over the top juniper punch. Our first sip was warming and mellow, with subtle hints of anise and a nice clean finish. A must-try for anyone looking to get into gin or expand their horizons.
