If you weren’t told about the two step aging process, you’d be unlikely to call out the wine barrel and the bourbon barrel. However, if the goal is a cohesive product rather than a showcase in process, the team at Cotswolds Distillery have a winner here. I think it’s a shame this is a limited edition one-off. Though I think the flavor might appeal primarily to fans of more citrus forward styles, there’s an elegant balance to Cotswolds Batch 1 that should win over even gin drinkers who don’t normally check out gins. One of my favorites in this limited edition run from That Boutique-y Gin Company.
