Traditionally, gin and vodka are not aged in barrels. Our Crooked Oak Barrel Reserve starts that way: It’s hand-crafted to be the best gin and vodka you’ve ever tasted.
And then we let it rest in barrels to create something truly extraordinary. Each barrel lends a unique flavor profile, creating spirits unlike any you’ve ever tasted.
Many distilleries, both national and small, make vodka and gin from an industrially manufactured alcohol that they buy in bulk and then re-distill. But at Crooked Oak, we ferment, distill, age, and bottle, all on site, all by hand. Crooked Oak distillery is also a licensed "farmer distillery” that pledges to use Massachusetts-grown products, where available. We think these are the best spirits you can drink—and we suspect, after one taste, you'll agree.
Imported from Mexico, this tequila barrel lends its batch of Barrel Reserve Gin a pungent sweetness, along with a wonderful earthy quality that matches perfectly with our gin botanicals.
