Most of our beer recipes start as ideas born out of what can be found in the Brewpub kitchen. Compelling Gin is no different, made from scratch using a culinary-inspired botanical mix.
"Since the start, our off-centered ales have been inspired by what was found in the spice drawer or cooler of our brewpub’s kitchen. The recipe for Compelling Gin came together the same way, by pulling a medley of compelling ingredients and whatnot from our brewpub.” – Dogfish Head founder & president Sam Calagione
Gin is simply vodka distilled with juniper berries and other botanicals. And what better base to start with than our very own scratch-made Analog Vodka. We pot distill using a gin basket burting with a citrus-forward botanical mix, Bright orange, lemon and lime peel take the lead, with the juniper berries rounded out by flavors of cinnamon, green cardamom, coriander seed and kaffir lime leaves. Enjoy peppery citrus zest flavors followed by baking spices and a lemon-lime finish.. Bright & citrusy, this highly mixable gin transforms a few go-tos such as Gin & Tonics and Bloody Marys, or as a back bone to the classics.
