Calvert Gin was a gin brand founded by the Calvert Distilling Company just outside Baltimore. The distillery opened just after prohibition made whiskeys and gin up until 1991 when then-brand-owner Seagram’s moved the historic brands from their longtime Maryland home. The brands were sold to the Jim Beam group.
Notes of cubeb, coriander, faint echoes of pine.
The palate is a bit more classic in profile. There’s a pine-forward note of juniper at the front of the palate, with fake orange/lemon notes— oddly sweet tasting.
the finish comes on with a touch of spice but a moderate, lasting warmth.
Enjoy in a classic Gin and Tonic.
