Cask Finished Gin

Pioneered by the Dutch 400 years ago, this old ‘cask finished’ style of gin has become new again.

Distilled From
American Grain

Our American Gin is finished in charred, second use Missouri white oak barrels, which introduces a layer of complex wood flavors, a subtle vanilla infused sweetness and the spice of young whiskey.

Hand Crafted
in Small Batches

This specialty spirit begins with Pinckney Bend’s award winning American Gin, which is smooth on the pallet, with bright juniper and well-balanced citrus notes.

Winner of Two International Gold Medals

This gin has actually earned two gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition — the base American Gin in 2012 and the Cask Finished Gin itself in 2015.

transport shipA Brief History

Starting around the 1600’s, a steady supply of Dutch gin (jenever) stored in wooden barrels was transported from the Netherlands to eager British drinkers. This trend lasted until the early-19th century. Crossing the English Channel from distilleries in Holland to markets in London, gin could spend several months in contact with wood, where it picked up both a light amber color and subtle flavors. This old ‘cask finished’ style of gin has become new again. The basis of our latest expression is Pinckney Bend’s award-winning American Gin, which is smooth on the pallet, with bright juniper and well-balanced citrus notes. The gin’s nine botanicals include juniper berries, coriander, orris, angelica and licorice root, lavender and three varieties of dried citrus.

Where to Buy

Our Cask Gin is currently available for sale at the Pinckney Bend Distillery and The Wine and Cheese Place in St. Louis, Missouri.
Cask Finished Gin should begin working its way into other retail channels by mid-July. We will keep our customers notified when this spirit becomes available at select retailers in our area and beyond.

What Our Customers Are Saying

…The palate is round and nicely balanced throughout, ending with a dry, comforting warmth. At the beginning juniper and citrus, all leading up to a creamy vanilla, violet and lavender note mid palate. The alcohol begins to warm a bit, as a wood influence creaminess mediates brisk juniper and the slightest hint of sweet licorice and angelica stalk. The finish is medium long with a warm, young whiskey character with residual juniper and lemon. Lovely from start to finish.
