R GIN is the second in our series of seasonal Pacific Northwest gins.
It is a distilled, slightly smokey, dry gin, which is best when enjoyed with oysters. The Hama Hama Oyster Co. is very generous in letting us smoke the barley for our R Gin in their oyster smoker. The barley is cold-smoked, and the result is a subtle smokey taste.
R Gin is named for the discredited, but lively, old wives’ tale that oysters are best in months with the letter “R.”
We have a limited edition of this R Gin.
