What is cask aged gin?

Also known as matured gin and barrel aged gin, cask aged gin is gin that has been matured in or with wood, including the use of: barrels, chips, or staves.

What does Campfire Cask Aged Gin taste like?

With 10 botanicals, Campfire Cask Aged Gin leads with notes of juniper, citrus and golden berry. These beautiful flavours are then enhanced with soft caramel, fruity bourbon and vanilla characteristics imparted through ageing in specially selected American oak ex-bourbon barrels. The wood barrel (or cask) also imparts a golden hue to this small batch gin. This is an oak aged gin but it’s not oaky or woody. Coming in at a gentle 43% ABV, it is perfect for neat sipping over ice. Ben always takes a hip flask full when camping!

How to serve Campfire Cask Aged Gin

For a simple G&T serve with Campfire Cask Aged Gin we recommend Fever-Tree Indian tonic or their Aromatic tonic. If you’re not a tonic fan then try ginger ale – this is one of the most popular drinks on our tour menu. Note we prefer ginger ale over ginger beer. It has a softer mouthfeel with less heat from the ginger kick.

Other classic gin cocktails we’re partial to include the Fireside Manhattan and Negroni. Our Fireside Manhattan is a cross over between a Gin & It (gin and sweet vermouth) and a Manhattan (bourbon and sweet vermouth). The ‘It’ typically refers to Italian sweet red vermouths – we favour Carpano Antica Formula and Regal Rogue Bold Red vermouths. The Negroni gin cocktail starts life as a Gin & It with the addition of Campari – an Italian bitter apéritif of the amaro variety. Easy to make just use equal measures of gin, sweet vermouth and Campari and you have a Negroni. Add an orange slice garnish for a fragrant, sweet aroma.
