Introducing our 30-gallon barrels, once the home of Catoctin Creek Watershed Gin®, distinctively aged in Pearousia pear brandy barrels. These barrels began their journey cradling a unique gin distilled from rye, infused with a secret recipe of herbs and spices. The gin's complex profile features subtle citrus, cinnamon, and the crispness of juniper, layered with the earthy tones of fresh cut hay.

The aging process in Pearousia pear brandy barrels added an exquisite layer of fruity sweetness, enriching the gin with the essence of ripe pears. This unique finish was further enhanced by bottling the gin with a 10% sugar addition, infusing the barrels with a delicate sweetness that complements the botanical and spicy notes.

Ideal for aging spirits, beers, or wines, they offer a rare opportunity to imbue your creations with a complex, multi-layered flavor profile.
