Dry Fly gin selected among top 10 “new American gins”

Spokane-based Dry Fly Distilling scored another high rating on the Top 10 new American Gins ranking, posted this week on the blog.

Dry Fly, which also makes whiskey and vodka, ranked seventh on the list, scoring a "solidly recommended" rating.

Here's how DrinkSpirit described the gin: " A distinctly different style of gin, Dry Fly has thrown out the rule book and taken an entirely different approach to gin. The nose on the Dry Fly Gin is huge green apple, strawberry, confectioner’s sugar and honeysuckle flowers, and back – way, way back in the background – is just a hint of pine.

"The taste is apple, pepper, peach, vanilla, wheat, nectarine and lime peel. The finish is pretty quick and leaves your mouth very cool and clean. We like Dry Fly’s Gin but it’s the kind of spirit which will get people arguing as to whether or not it’s actually a true gin. Either way, it’s an exciting entry into this space and an interesting New American Gin."
