Desert Dry is a New World style from Flagstaff, AZ, distilled at an elevation of 7000 feet in the first legal distillery in Arizona.
Desert Dry claims to be crafted with eight selected botanicals (they don’t list which) “including some native to the Southwest and Sonoran desert.”
We’re not sure what the “desert” notes are other than the ones that your normally find in gin, and it’s definitely heavy on the Juniper but we also found a sweet, floral nose – with distinct notes of rich, honeyed lavender. It’s fairly viscous and not too dry.
All in all, Mark calls it,
A “fine” gin. Probably not the sort of thing you’d want in a martini but it would be very respectable “mixing” gin and the floral notes should be very nice in a G&T.
