Unruly Gin, Wayward Distillation House, Courtenay, BC, 43% abv, 750 ml, C$52+

I love Gin.  Gin, gin, gin.  Gin is fun.  It’s tasty.  Generally, gin makes me giddy and yes, glad.

This one is no exception to the rule I tend to follow for handcrafted, artisan spirits.

Made from 100% BC honey instead of grain, this gin is also gluten free.  What is this sorcery, you ask?!  Yes, the honey is fermented into mead, which is then distilled into spirit, and with vapor infusion, it becomes this gin with its beautiful tapestry of aromas and flavours.

The Wayward Distillery gin has only a very light touch of juniper, with lavender, green herb, and bergamot.  The palate shows all of these – in addition to a splash of sarsaparilla.

This was a 2016 gold medal winner at the Vancouver International Spirits Competition, and won a silver at the 2018 Canadian Artisan Spirit Competition.

It’ll bring joy to all your ‘it’s 5 pm somewhere’ cocktails.  Note – martinis tend to work out extra, super swell when using this #beeunruly gin.
