Ethereal Gin is distiller Chris Weld’s ever-evolving project, each batch featuring a different botanical recipe. This one happens to be exactly what you want alone in a glass (perhaps with a little ice, to tame the higher proof). The recipe includes 14 botanicals and a good amount of juniper, skewing in a decisively piney and fruity way. Take a sip, and a wave of fresh bay leaf, apple, pink peppercorn and lime flavors rides along, the gin complex without being cloying.
