Tasting Notes

Finely sourced juniper, raw honey made in house and gentle aging in barrel make for one of the best aged gins on the market. The flavors veer from whisky and agave like at times, but the heart and soul of the spirit is gin through and through.

Staff Pick Notes

I have just got to share this with you! I haven't tasted a gin this incredible ever. This is an Astor exclusive brought to us by Todd Hardie from Vermont's Caledonian Spirits. The gin is created from a corn-based spirit, which undergoes a second distillation using only local juniper and fresh raw honey, which is sourced from Todd's own busy little bees that he has been cultivating for the last 30 years. Now here's the magic that makes this one-of-a-kind spirit even more unique: barrel aging in American oak casks for three months. The nose: bright full juniper, sweet lemon citrus, honey, and spice. The palate: citrus, juniper, floral, and sweet vanilla. The finish: too good to be true! Enjoy this special spirit and raise a glass to the bees and to Todd!

Pairing Advice

Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Chicken will sing with the first-ever release of aged gin from this outstanding producer (and an exclusive batch made specifically for us). The local juniper berries and raw honey that Todd Hardie has been cultivating for the past 30 years are the start of the show here. The nose is a wonderful back and forth of invigorating floral juniper, which complements the fresh wood notes perfectly. The texture is luscious at first but shifts gears on the mid-palate to show off flavors of clementines, banana, caramel, and sawdust, coming full circle to the extended piney, juniper finish.
