TRU2 Gin

TRU Organic Spirits, a division of Modern Spirits Group, has unveiled TRU2 Gin, an addition to its portfolio of sustainable, organic spirits. You can get the lowdown on the Monrovia, CA, company's "green" philosophy and production here.

TRU2 Gin

This new product doesn't look like the usual gin. It begins with an organic wheat base spirit into which 14 whole botanicals are macerated in layers. Because the gin is not re-distilled after maceration, the combination of the botanicals releases an amber hue to the gin.

The 84-proof spirit that results is a feast for the senses -- lemon, coriander, orris, allspice. On the palate, the parade marches on -- cinnamon, fennel, clove, star anise.

This is a gin that keeps on giving. For my taste, you'd be foolish to imbibe it any way but straight.

Suggested retail price: $34.99 for the 750ml bottle.
