Rabbit Hole Bespoke Gin begins with a London Dry gin, made from the botanicals of angelica, coriander, juniper, lemon peel, licorice, orange peel and orris root. Rabbit Hole imports the gin to its distillery, where the liquid is left to rest for nine to twelve months in the same #3, wood-fired, toasted and charred new American Oak barrels that the distillery uses to age its Kentucky straight rye whiskey.
The spirit emerges from the barrels with a golden color and notes of citrus, honeysuckle and elderflower, the company reports, plus a hint of nutmeg. On the palate, lemongrass is prevalent, with a creamy mouth feel. The finish includes honey and ginger.
