FEW Barrel Aged Gin
Welcome to Day 27 of #GinMonth as I review FEW Barrel Aged Gin.
A wonderful sample of gin provided to me by the very lovely Charlie (@The_Lady_Sybil) from The Gin Fuelled Blue Stocking, many thanks for the sample!
This is a stunning American gin, made by FEW Spirits in Illinois, USA. It was aged in oak barrels, and the result of this is an increased level of sweetness, complexity and spice.
Go try one, pop on over to Master of Malt and pick one up now.
