Bluecoat Gin was launched in May 2006, just six months after Philadelphia Distilling opened in Pennsylvania, USA. In doing so, Philadelphia Distilling became the first Pennsylvanian craft distillery to open since the Prohibition era. To create their line of premium spirits, Philadelphia Distilling is proud to take advantage of modern techniques combined with sheer craftsmanship.
Made one batch at a time with 100% certified organic botanicals, Bluecoat Gin is named after the American soldiers of the Revolutionary War. Thanks to the colour of their uniforms, they became known as the Bluecoats. It is their revolutionary spirit that this gin celebrates. To make it, a high proof neutral grain spirit is macerated with botanicals before distillation. They are able to use hand-hammered copper stills and wooden fermentation vessels to craft their spirits.
While the botanical mix for this gin remains a secret that the makers keep to themselves, it can be said that it is a smooth dry gin with wonderful citrus and juniper flavours. This All American gin is best served with a slice of orange rather than the more common lime to bring out its citrus notes. You can try pairing it with cheese to let the flavours play off one another.
