Staff Pick: Madeline Davis - Wine Scout
Silent Pool is, hands down, the number one gin in my house. Every time I break out the G&T’s for guests this gin is the shining star, garnering rave reviews! It’s the only gin I’ve found that I enjoy sipping neat.
A Gin renaissance is underway, and we now taste almost as much gin as we do whisky. This new arrival really stood out from the pack. Silent Pool Distilleries is the self-professed “Willy Wonka of distilleries,” and Master Distiller Cory Mason is the reason. He employs a unique method that includes bruising and macerating the major botanicals, infusing the citrus and floral components, and using fractional distillation to precisely control the amount of flavor from each botanical in the final product. All in all, 24 unique botanicals are carefully selected for this gin, and many are locally sourced. Mason may be perhaps be a mad scientist, but the results speak for themselves.
