Runa Old School Yellow Gin 43% - 70cl
This product is currently not available.
Almost all gin used to be Yellow Gin.

Before 1861, in England, gin was transported and sold in wooden barrels. As a result, the gin developed a straw yellow color, hence name yellow gin. The longer the gin was stored in the barrel, the more intense the color became, the flavor changing along with it.

In 1861 William Gladstone, Chancellor of the Exchequer, brought in the Single Bottle Act, enabling spirits to be sold in individual glass bottles, ushering in the age of the bottle and decline of the wooden cask.

Although... fast forward over a century and a half, and yellow gin was still around: Hemingway wrote about it in one of his novels about the Spanish Civil War and is known to have enjoyed a few measures himself. The first edition of the Savoy cocktail book from 1930 contained an advert for barrel-aged gin.

Runa Scandinavian Spirits honors the yellow gin tradition by producing a special yellow gin, taking Runa Gin and aging it for 7 months in juniper barrels.

This result is Runa Yellow Gin, with evocative pine forest aromas, light woody notes, along with nuances of vanilla and woodruff from the juniper wood used for aging.
