Caledonia Spirits Barr Hill Reserve Tom Cat Gin
Barr Hill Tom Cat Reserve is crafted by maturing Barr Hill Gin for three to four months in new American oak casks. “While resting in the barrels, the gin is constantly transforming,” says Todd Hardie, Caledonia Spirits founder. “The charred barrels contribute to the brown color of the spirit and give our Barr Hill Reserve Tom Cat its complex flavor.” Tom Cat Reserve has notes of juniper and ginger, but also has touches of caramel, vanilla and honey that are robust and bountiful. The combination of juniper and oak mingle to create a distinct cinnamon note. An absolutely spectacular, one of a kind spirit.
Caledonia Spirits founder Todd Hardie spent five decades as a beekeeper before deciding to incorporate his raw Northeastern honey into craft spirits. Caledonia Spirits is rooted in the traditions of Vermont agriculture and beekeeping, and the company's mission is to support the sustainable production of honey, food crops, dairy, and plants as well as create spirits that are both delicious and produced with attention to agricultural and environmental concerns. Caledonia's spirits are all produced with ingredients local to Vermont's Northeast Kingdom region and New York State.
