Miel de Garde #4 (Gin Barrel Aged Orange Blossom)

Miel de Garde #4 (Gin Barrel Aged Orange Blossom)

Fourth in the series is a captivating honey wine using the finest orange blossom honey we could find. After fermentation, it continued its evolution in Award-winning Valentine Liberator Old Tom gin barrels for 3 months before being transferred to stainless tanks to complete the aging process. Sweet and citrusy with a deep honey character up front followed by crisp spice notes contrasting the sweetness. Warming on the palate, with a medium body and a dry, lingering floral finish.
