Distilled in the old Dutch colony of Brooklyn from grains grown in New York State, Chief Gowanus is based on an early American recipe for making a version of “Holland gin” out of American rye whiskey. It starts of with the unaged, double-distilled rye whiskey, putting it back in the traditional pot still with a few shovelfuls of juniper berries and a handful of Cluster hops (the variety likely to have been in use in 1809, from whence the recipe originates) and run it through a third time. The gin is then aged for three months in oak barrel. The resulting gin has the flavors of spicy vanilla from the rye and citrus, juniper aromas from the botanicals.
