The Summer Expression blossoms with floral aromas such as Jasmine and Rose. The scents of summer unfold in the glass as it opens. This is a soft gin on the palate with a touch of peppermint and coriander providing accent flavors. A perfect expression for the fan of lighter styles of gin who don't want to be overwhelmed by citrus, but prefer a bit more balance. A tinge of sweetness sees you through the gorgeous finish.
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.
