Inspired by the DEATH’S DOOR passageway which lies between WASHINGTON ISLAND and the DOOR COUNTY peninsula, Death’s Door Spirits is committed to working with local farmers to create truly exceptional spirits.
Death’s Door Gin has a surprisingly simple botanical mix of juniper berries, coriander and fennel. Using juniper berries that grow wild on Washington Island with coriander and fennel sourced from within the state, Death’s Door Spirits is able to showcase how complementary and complex simple expressions can be. Death’s Door Gin employs a base of Washington Island wheat and malted barley from Chilton, Wisconsin. The Gin has a full London Dry flavour without all of the bitterness because of the extraction process and the base spirit. In fact, you can taste all three botanicals: loaded juniper berries up front; spicy, citrusy notes from the coriander seeds in the mid-palate; and a soft, cooling finish provided by the fennel seeds. Death’s Door Gin is big enough to stand up to classic or vintage cocktail treatment, but soft enough to be enjoyed on the rocks or as a dry martini. It truly is a “utility” American gin.
