Venus Spirits Gin Blend No. 2 is the brand’s barrel-aged gin, which uses a different blend of botanicals than their Gin Blend No. 1, including juniper, cardamom, orange, fennel, coriander, bay leaf, sage, and peppercorns. According to the distiller, the botanicals were specifically selected to pair with American Oak.
Santa Cruz distillery Venus Spirits, founded by Sean Venus, began their operations in 2014. They’ve since developed an impressively diverse line of products, offering everything from barrel-aged gin, aquavit, and agave spirits to bourbon and single malt whiskey.
