" Distilled from a Niagara grape base and infused with 22 botanicals (hence the name), this small-batch gin is light and soft, with notes of lemongrass, juniper and lime zest, finishing zingy and brisk. Though the producer warns that the gin is unfiltered and may appear cloudy, it looked clear in the glass. Martini material. "
" The classic distilled gin was crafted in our copper pot still by passing vapour through 22 botanicals. We present it cloudy — unfiltered to maintain full flavour. If you were able to reach into a old photo of Hemingway and pry the gin from his hand, it might have tasted like our Unfiltered Gin 22. Why? Because he didn’t do, or drink, anything half glass or without flavour and nor do we. Our Gin 22 is so smooth and flavourful that your next martini should be straight — without the need to get dirty or be embarrassed by a vermouth.
Let this gin take you back to a time when things were done right and appreciated by people who grabbed large animals by the horns — heck, you might even run into Hemingway on your yacht." ~ Distillery notes
