The Maine Mouth spotted another Maine Made product that appeared in the Wine Enthusiast’s Top 50 Spirits of 2008 list. Back River Gin which is manufactured by the Sweet Grass Winery in Union also made the top list.
“The fresh, vibrant bouquet smells delightfully of juniper berries, cedar sap, brambles and blueberries. Entry is keenly tart, blueberry-acidic and mouth-puckering; at midpalate flavors of juniper and cooking spice move to the fore of the dry bittersweet taste profile. Finishes ultra-clean, amazingly tart and acidic, yet eye-poppingly fresh. A creative and sophisticated gin.”
