This handcrafted gin from Bendistillery in Bend, Oregon, deserves to be appreciated by itself. Then you can savor the delicate aromatics imparted by wild Oregon juniper berries.
The distillery is located on 24 acres of forest land and harvests the berries from its own trees. No other botanicals are used.
I tasted Bendistillery's gin (and vodka too) at the Los Angeles Epicurean Festival at Vibiania in downtown Los Angeles, and I'm heading out to buy a bottle as soon as possible. Be warned, though. It's one of the strongest gins around--95 proof.
