Bitter Review: Dillon’s Black Currant Bitters

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 29, 2019

Dillon’s Small Batch Distillers is a small craft producer of spirits located in Beamsville Ontario. They currently produce Vodka and gin (both distilled from Ontario grown Niagara Grapes), as well as both White Rye and Rye Whisky grown from 100% Ontario Rye Grain. The distillery also produces a number of specialty spirits such as Absinthe and Limoncello as well as a line-up of Cocktail Bitters.

It is the Cocktail Bitters which interest me in this review, specifically Dillon’s Black Currant Bitters.

Here is a link to my full review which include two cocktail suggestions:

Bitter Review: Dillon’s Black Currant Bitters

“… I found the bitters had a sharp somewhat tannic taste which represented a flavour of bitter black currants with more than a hint of green grape alongside. Despite the bitterness, a light sweetness comes through as well as does a light backbite of citrus zest and peppery spice …”

Please enjoy the review and do try the cocktails.

Chimo!

Review: Dillon’s Rye Whisky (Batch 1)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on June 20, 2018

Dillon’s Small Batch Distillers is a small craft producer of spirits located in Beamsville Ontario. They currently produce Vodka and gin (both distilled from Ontario grown Niagara Grapes), as well as both White Rye and Rye Whisky grown from 100% Ontario Rye Grain. The distillery also produces a number of specialty spirits such as Absinthe and Limoncello.

According to the producer’s website:

To be called Canadian Rye Whisky means something. To be called 100% Rye Whisky made in Canada means something more. It means pride. It means at least three full years of aging in oak casks. It means made from nothing but pure rye grain – no barley, no wheat, and no corn. It means distilled one batch at a time in pot stills – not continuously in columns. It means no flavourings and no colourings were ever added. It means what we put on the label is what is inside the bottle. It means liquid truth.

Here is a link to my complete review:

Review: Dillon’s Rye Whisky (Batch 1)

“… The small batch still used by Dillon’s is apparently capable of creating heavy esters and phenols which give the whisky a heavier consistency than we would normally find in a three-year old spirit. (This is one of the advantages of small craft distilleries.) …”

Please enjoy my review.

Chimo!
