Here is what Wine Enthusiast had to say in 2014 when it was called one of the top 50 spirits in the world:
“This brisk, citrusy gin is made for classic cocktails. Bold lemon and grapefruit notes meld with a light floral note and just enough juniper to hold it together.” Score – 93
KARNER BLUE GIN
Made from apples grown at Apple Hill Farm in Concord, NH, we spend months of every year distilling just the base for this incredible gin that has to be distilled 3 times. We believe that we owe this spirit’s success to the apples it is made from. Without them, the spirit would not have its incredible soft/buttery finish. The botanicals are all soaked in the spirit for 12 hours during the distillation. We use Summer Savory, Cubeb berries, cinnamon, lemon peel, orange peel, angelica root, coriander, orris root, and most importantly Juniper berries. Juniper berries are typically the predominant flavor in gin. This spirit has won many awards over the years. We believe it is one of our best.
How’s it drink?
Citrusy, Floral, Fresh, and Fun, this gin is amazing in any gin cocktail – we think it particularly shines in a citrus based cocktail. Many of our customers call this the only gin they will drink. It has pretty, fresh flavors we all love so much in the gin but with a unique finish that is so soft and buttery that even the hardened gin hater has nice things to say. Don’t just take our word for it.
… a timeless classic.
