“Dutch-style Gin, or Genever, was the original Gin. For the first 600 years of gin making, Gin was made from whiskey in a copper pot still. Inspired by a 19th century Pennsylvanian Distiller’s recipe, we are working to bring back this lost gem of distillation. As with all Wigle products, this handcrafted spirit is made from scratch in our copper pot still in very small batches, using only organic ingredients and local, heirloom grains.”
