No. 209 Gin Barrel Reserve Chardonnay 70cl
No. 209 Chardonnay Barrel Reserve Gin is the newest offering from Distillery No.209 which predominantly ages in used French oak Chardonnay barrels. The gin rests for 3 to 4 months and is tasted frequently to track the progression of the spirit in barrel until Distillery No.209 feel it's ready for bottling.
No. 209 Chardonnay Barrel Reserve Gin initially shows a grassy nose followed by buttery-toffee and a hint of oak.
