Review: Spring Mill Gin

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 11, 2020

The Spring Mill Distillery has roots in Upper Canada that stretch all the way back to 1836 when the Sleeman Family built a Distillery to augment their Brewery built 2 year earlier. While the Brewery became a Canadian success story, the Distillery didn’t fare so well as it ceased operations almost immediately after it was founded. However, the seed of that distillery must have have stayed with the Sleemans, as 183 years later they did it all over again and launched the Spring Mill Distillery on the banks of the Speed River in Guelph, Ontario.

Spring Mill Distillery Gin is produced from a base spirit of red winter wheat on copper stills which look like they would be perfectly at home in any Scottish Single Malt Distillery.  According to the distillery:

At the heart, the liquid introduces a bright and approachable juniper with gentle floral notes on the mid-palate and the crisp clean citrus finish of a traditional London Gin style. Spring Mill Distillery Gin uniquely expresses a provincial earthiness, highlighted by a supporting cast of aromatics including angelica, cassia bark, and sea buckthorn to reflect the lush rural landscape of Canada. 

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Spring Mill Gin

“… mild juniper chased by bright citrus with wonderful light earthy notes following. Hints of spiciness tantalize, and within it all are light herbal nuances which hint at licorice and cinnamon. The aroma is exceptionally well balanced …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with a classic cocktail suggestion, the Gimlet.
