Dancing Sands Barrel Aged Gin
The huge oak flavour shines through with hints of sweetness drawn from the rum casks. You’ll also recognise our signature hints of juniper, manuka and spice with the peppercorns and cardamom leading the way.
Aged for 3 months, two types of casks were hand-selected: used 14-year Murderer’s Bay Gold Rum barrels and new French Oak barrels. The resulting gin is exceptional. Dancing Sands Barrel Aged Gin is blended and bottled at 48%.
The huge oak flavour shines through with hints of sweetness drawn from the rum casks and the juniper, manuka, and spice that is the hallmark of Dancing Sands. It is a beautiful champagne colour.
