Alltech’s Town Branch Distillery, known for its bourbon and Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, is releasing a gin.
Town Branch Gin, which is flavored with coriander, nutmeg, orange and lemon peels, and purple coneflower in addition to juniper berries, is available at the Town Branch Distillery visitors center.
It will be moving into full distribution at the beginning of 2018, the company said. Town Branch Gin will retail for $29.99 per 750mL bottle, and it clocks in at 40 percent alcohol by volume or 80 proof.
The botanicals, including the native coneflower, give Town Branch Gin “a clean, bright, refreshing finish,” according to tasting notes.
