Wine Enthusiast 89 points - This gin offers bold anise flavor and a spicy but clean finish, with notes of juniper, grapefruit peel, white pepper and lemongrass. A good choice for gin and tonics, as it will stand up to mixers and lots of ice. USDA certified organic. (Nov 2013)
Farmer's Botanical Small Batch Organic Gin is produced with a proprietary selection of the finest botanicals including Juniper, Elderflower, Lemon
Grass, Coriander, Angelica Root, and others.
This small batch organic gin is 93.4 proof, handcrafted for ultimate
smoothness and has a remarkably balanced flavor perfect for cocktails. Farmer's Gin is made by the producers of Crop Harvest Earth, TheCleanest Vodka.
"Itís fragrant, a bit floral and not as bone-dry and piney as a typical London gin. You might spike lemonade with it, and appreciate the 93.4 proof. I like it neat, on the rocks, with a generous squirt of lime."

|Juniper: Juniper, the primary botanical used to flavor gins, is also the inspiration for ginís name as gin is a shortened version of the Dutch word for juniper, geniever. Essential oils are extracted from juniper berries to give gin its characteristic aroma and taste.
Elderflower: In season only from mid-May to mid-June, elderflower has a delicate floral flavor. The fragile, creamy-white blossoms, from which the lovely but hard to describe taste of the elderflower is coaxed out is complex with notes of flowers and summer fruits.
Lemon Grass: Lemon grass has a vibrant, lemony flavor. The botanical is extracted from the leaves and stalks of lemon grass and is a frequent ingredient in gin cocktails. We felt it deserved a prominent place in our gin.
Coriander: One of the oldest known botanicals and a traditional gin flavoring, coriander has a citrusy, nutty flavor. In addition to being an important gin ingredient, coriander, the seed of the cilantro plant, is also said by some to be a digestive aid and to help alleviate insomnia.
Angelica Root: Recognized as much for its medicinal properties as its flavor contribution to gin, angelica root has a slightly sweet, warm, aromatic, musky taste. Heralded in some cultures as a panacea for ailments ranging from colds to gout, angelica root also complements juniper and other gin botanicals.
