That Boutique-y Gin Company's aGeINg is something that ought to be very intriguing to the inquisitive gin nerd. The gin within the bottle is a wonderful recipe full of classic gin botanicals (juniper, coriander, orange, cassia, etc.), but the little wooden stick you see alongside the bottle is where things get interesting.

You see, cask-aged gin is great, but sometimes you might think the cask-ageing has gone on a bit too long or perhaps not long enough with certain gins. With aGeINg, you pop that (purposefully) charred stick into the bottle of gin and let it impart its oak-y deliciousness. Once it has achieved a flavour profile to your liking, simply remove the stick to arrest the process.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Pine-y juniper with a hint of eucalyptus, punchy lemon and orange, lavender, peppercorn and cinnamon.

Great Gin, But...
Bought this as somewhat of a gift to myself, and partly for the gimmick. I like an aged gin but honestly struggle to find one that suits my particular tastes, so this was right up my street.

I intially tried the gin as is, to get a feel for it's flavour and so I knew the base point for the oak aging. It is a solid gin, and perfect on its' own. But let's be honest, that's not why we're here l.

I put the stick in, and left it for the amount of days that suited me (taking a small sip each day) until I found the perfect level of oakiness for my palate. I won't describe the taste as each person's is individual, but it does what it says on the bottle.

There is, however, an issue. Unless I'm just missing something, it is nearly impossible to get the wood stick out of the bottle. I ended up having to pour the liquid into a measuring jug, and using an old trick with a plastic bag to remove the stick.

When the gimmick is a selling point but difficult to use, that does detract somewhat. However, the end result definitely makes up for the faff

This works
Love a gimmick so bought this, popped the charred oak in and left it for two weeks. What emerged was a woody, vanilla tinged, giving slight citrus rinds and a bit of leather. Pushes the juniper away almost into grappa territory!
