Waterloo Antique Gin
“How good is it? Ridiculously good, with stunning botanical aromas and multilayered flavors, its complexity actually competes with international whiskeys. Granted, seeing something the color of Maker’s Mark married to the aromas of classic gin provides an initial shock to the senses. All thoughts were gone the second Matt Moody, Treaty Oak’s beverage director, offered me a perfectly designed old fashioned that substituted Waterloo Antique Barrel Reserve Gin in place of the whiskey. French distiller Citadelle is the originator of aged gin, a concept that is still rare. That is soon to change. Industry insiders say the aged gin category is poised for explosive growth. If the Treaty Oak version is any indicator, I can see why.”
