Create cocktail chemistry with Biltmore Conservatory Rose Gin–a delicious new collaboration between two family-led companies in Asheville, North Carolina.
Biltmore Conservatory Rose Gin
Mixed or muddled, handcrafted botanical gins are very much on trend, and none surpass the pure elegance of the new Biltmore Conservatory Rose Gin.
“This is a spirit created in collaboration with Biltmore Winery to evoke the classic refinement of Biltmore’s gardens in bloom,” said Chris Price, Wine Marketing Manager.
The base gin crafted by Chemist Spirits expresses soft juniper notes bursting with bright citrus. It was then matured for several months in Merlot-soaked estate barrels for a rich infusion of wild raspberry and toasted oak flavors.
In addition to the traces of Merlot, the gin rested on fresh-picked rose petals from Biltmore’s historic Rose Garden, resulting in a palate-pleasing botanical gin infused with delicate nuances of pink and white roses, vanilla, and a kiss of oak that finishes with a smooth, velvety note of dry red wine.
“In addition to capturing the sweeping romance of the estate, we invite you to enjoy Biltmore Conservatory Rose Gin in the ‘spirit’ in which it is intended–as a reminder to slow down and savor those lingering moments that inspire us to pause and drink in the roses,” Chris said.
To honor this exclusive collaboration in which Chemist Spirits locally distilled gin is carefully aged in Biltmore Estate® Merlot barrels—along with a fragrant profusion of petals from estate roses—we’re shaking things up with a trio of Biltmore wines perfectly paired with a splash of spirits to create instant cocktail chemistry:
• Bistro invites you to sip their sensational Vie en Rose cocktail featuring Biltmore Estate® Syrah and Biltmore Conservatory Rose Gin.
• The Gin & Zin Tonic, featuring Biltmore Estate® Limited Release Zinfandel and Biltmore Conservatory Rose Gin, is available at Cedric’s® Tavern.
