The Revivalist Botanical Gin Solstice Expression


The expression to warm you during a chilly winter's night, this gin is finished in red wine barrels and has a hearty, dense red fruit nose with touches of gingery spice. Full-bodied, warm, and balanced on the palate, we actually found a hint of tannin as the complexity unfurled on the mid-palate. A labyrinth of flavor unfolds with every sip of this, most beguiling, gin. Looking to expand your horizons, look no further, you'll find a refreshing new love for gin in this bottle.

Brothers Don and Scott Avellino took an interesting approach to that idea and have begun producing seasonally inspired gins to showcase different botanical mixes that each make for a spirit with gusto! The bottlings are appropriately named “The Revivalist.” Given gin’s resurgence in the spirits world, it is a logical place for a small, craft distillery to start. Housed in a converted, restored barn, and nestled around 45 miles west of Philadelphia’s City Center, Brandywine Branch Distillers began making artisan spirits from grain to bottle in 2016. They use a custom built alembic still and have installed fermentation tanks made of local Douglas Fir, definitely modeled on an “old school” operation. Don, Scott, and their team are dedicated to preserving the traditions of craft and producing spirits that discerning drinkers will want to return to time and again.
