Roundhouse Gin is a New Western Gin, micro-distilled and bottled by hand in exceptionally small batches. We start with neutral grain spirit, which we redistill in a handmade, Spanish copper pot still with the traditional gin botanicals of juniper berry, coriander, citrus peel, star anise, angelica, and orris root. Hints of sencha green tea, lavender, and hibiscus and chamomile blossoms are added to give it a distinct, floral palette. We think you’ll agree: Roundhouse Gin is a truly inspired gin that departs the beaten path of mass produced spirits.
In Italy, a “caffe corretto” is a coffee “corrected” with a shot of liquor. Roundhouse Corretto is a coffee liqueur that needs no correction though. To handcraft Corretto in small batches we use organic free-trade beans that are hand selected by blind roaster, Gerry Leary, of the Unseen Bean in Boulder. We add a touch of whole vanilla bean, and sweeten it with just the right amount. The end result is a wonderful burst of coffee flavors spiked in the Italian-style. The other big-brand stuff is made with corn syrup and has a whopping 91 calories per ounce while Corretto comes in at a svelte 53 calories.
To make Imperial, we start with Roundhouse’s signature, award-winning Gin, distilled in small batches from the finest all natural botanicals, and then age it to perfection in oak casks for at least 10 months. The process introduces scotch and whiskey flavors causing our patrons to affectionately nickname it “Ginskey.” Imperial’s complex character and smoothness are unlike any spirit you’ve ever had.
SUPER RARE! Only a handful of distilleries in the entire country attempt this “brown gin” and Roundhouse sets the bar!
The balance between pumpkin flavor, sweetness, and spices is a delicate dance that distiller Ted Palmer successfully achieves with his twenty years of experience. Ted experimented for three years before perfecting this recipe. Pumpkin King Cordial is made at 60 proof with enough explosive pumpkin flavor to accommodate non-alcoholic mixers in beautiful cocktails.
The production for 2014 is very limited. Roundhouse roasted a bit over 5,000 pounds of pumpkins, which will make about 5,000 of the half-bottles (375ml) in which Pumpkin King Cordial is sold. Colorado alone has about 5MM people which means that only 1 in every 1,000 residents could get a bottle in Roundhouse’s home state. However, New York and Chicago have demanded their fair share making distribution spread much thinner.
Perfect with a dab of whipped cream or delicious mixed with a bit of eggnog, ginger beer, mocha, caffé latte, or apple cider. It’s also a delight over vanilla ice cream or even to soak a crusty slice of pumpkin pie.
