J. Carver Distillery recently unleashed a “barrel-rested” gin (less time than “barrel-aged”) and the oak-kissed spirit thankfully retains its botanical brightness. “The delicacy of the gin is what we don’t want to lose by leaving it in too long,” said distiller Matt Miller.
Founded in 2013, J. Carver Distillery is focused on producing unique, hand-crafted spirits one batch at a time. In collaboration with Minnesota’s agricultural community, their spirits are formulated using locally-sourced ingredients, such as winter wheat, resulting in the highest quality craft spirits.
