Manifest Distilling Barreled Gin
Along with the Gin and Rye Whiskey, this spirit was one that Manifest plans to keep the in regular rotation. The founders' home bars had a regular rotation of barreled gin from a few American distillers, but there was a limited selection because it is somewhat of a new category in the spirit world.
Like the category of gin, barreled gin gives craft distillers the ability to play with flavors to create a really unique variation without waiting 2-4+ years. Manifest Barreled Gin will be a regularly available product but will vary from batch to batch. With all our experimental whiskey batches we regularly have barrels that were used to age different types of whiskies.
Like blending any spirit, it is not a linear process. You can't just take a spirit, stick it in a previously used barrel and assume it's going to turn out great. Each batch that we have developed includes blending different age gins from different barrels.
