Matt’s review:

Death’s Door Gin. This Wisconsin-based craft distillery is producing some of the finest Gin available.  They’ve achieved Certified Organic status from growing their hard Red Winter Wheat on Washington Island, which is also where they grow the super aromatic Juniper that is the hallmark of this premium craft Gin. On the nose, botanical Juniper berry and sweet evergreen notes, followed by delicate exotic spice.  The palate is incredibly smooth which persists on the long anise and Juniper finish.  Very impressive, this is a Gin you’ll enjoy served straight up on ice, and is stellar as the main component of a traditional G&T.  Death’s Door is named after the passage of water between Washington Island and Wisconsin mainland.  It may sound spooky but it couldn’t be further from that especially once you smell the pure Juniper, Corriander, and Fennel, and taste how smooth it is. Death’s Door may just be the gateway to Gin heaven. Tasted October 2017. Highly recommended! 93+ points. Matt Steeves –
