A Completely Lucky Mistake

Several months ago, my friend Jeff Morgenthaler was kind enough to gift me with a bottle of his own, homemade gin. If you haven't read Jeff Morgenthaler’s guide to making your own gin, you really owe it to yourself to do so, its an interesting read and an even better experiment. Now I got my sample of Jeff's gin about a week before that post went up, it was really nice at the time I tried it, and then I put it in the refrigerator and promptly forgot about it (don't take this personally Jeff, I forget about everything as Raena can attest). Fast forward to tonight, when I was looking to make more room in the fridge and I came across the bottle of Jeff's gin again. I'd enjoyed it when I tasted it initially, in fact, I thought it was better than a number of commercial gins that I've had. However, the several months of cold and bottle age had added a complexity and depth that I was completely unprepared for when I opened up the bottle. Not only was this good, it was outstanding, it was if the flavors developed even more while they were in the bottle, which I assume is a possibility since this was cold infused versus distilled. Anyway, if you made a batch of Jeff's gin a while back, or happen to be lucky enough to be gifted some, start digging around in the back of your fridge for that bottle. You can thank me later.

Hmm, I've got a few bottles lying around here that I'm going to have to bust out. Thanks, Lance!
