Dogfish Head Compelling Gin
Dogfish Head Compelling Gin Is Simply Vodka Distilled With Juniper Berries And Other Botanicals. And What Better Base To Start With Than Our Very Own Scratch-Made Analog Vodka. Head Distiller Graham Hamblett Adds A Long List Of Beautiful Culinary Ingredients Such As Coriander, Angelica Root And Lemon Peel To Make A Bright And Citrusy Gin That’s Quite Compelling.
Distilling using the peel and flesh of our favorite citrus and a long list of beautiful culinary ingredients stolen from our brewpub kitchen, Compelling Gin is a bright and citrusy, with a crisp juniper snap and lingering cinnamon warmth, a culinary-inspired gin.
This is the company’s Analog Vodka redistilled with juniper, coriander seed, angelica root, black peppercorn, lemon peel, green cardamom, hibiscus, orris root, orange peel, lime peel, kaffir lime leaves, and cinnamon. That’s not an incredibly unusual botanical bill, but Compelling Gin is quite a surprise from the start. Those lime leaves are immediately pungent, alongside plenty more citrus — orange and lemon — really overwhelming the aromatics, at least at first. The gin soon settles down and allows a more earthy, pungent character to take hold, the coriander bumped up a bit too much, overwhelming even the juniper. The palate finds much of the above elements in balance, a surprisingly fresh and pungent coriander character kicking things off, followed by plenty of soothing evergreen/menthol notes.
