Manifest Distilling Gin
We a year-and-a-half developing the profile for our Gin. It was a painstaking process of individually distilling more than 25 different botanicals to gauge their taste as a single distillate. This allowed us to isolate each flavor profile and then fractionally blend down our exact recipe. We went through multiple versions of our recipe before targeting what sits in the bottle today.
As self-proclaimed "gin-heads," we went for a crisp, refreshing flavor profile to celebrate our warm weather climate. A lot of the mouth feel and texture in Gin can come from the base spirit. We tasted over half a dozen neutral spirits before selecting our base. The clear winner was an organic wheat neutral. Since we are based in Florida, we chose to use dried lemon and orange peel to create that crispness. We didn't want to alienate all that makes gin a gin, though, so we braced the spirit with juniper berries and angelica root, in addition to other traditional gin botanicals. This provides a wonderful balance of crisp and dry.
We invite you to swing by and pick up a bottle of Florida's first organic gin to try it for yourself.
