I love that distillers are barrel aging Gins, I find the flavors added by the oak add depth that can’t be found in Gin any other way. Since it is only in barrels (Virgin oak barrels) for 50 days, Ballast Point calls it a “rested” Gin. The results of the 50 days in oak is a Gin with vibrant Juniper/pine flavors and robust cinnamon notes. The cinnamon is just one example of why I enjoy barrel aged (or rested) Gins. Those subtle spices you find in the unaged Old Grove become more pronounced and add depth to the spirit.
