Wolf Spirit announced the launch of Mr. Pickles Pacific Northwest Gin.
Named for Master Distiller Ben Green’s pit bull rescue pup, Mr. Pickles, the gin is a smooth, premium international style gin that reflects the personality of the distillery’s gregarious mascot and Oregon’s majestic mountains, the company says.
“We created this gin to honor Mr. Pickles for his loyalty, friendship, and undying love for everyone at Wolf Spirit,” Green said in a statement. “Mr. Pickles may appear intimidating, but he is truly a warm, welcoming spirit filled with unbridled joy and I think we have done a great job in capturing that in our first gin.”
Mr. Pickles Gin opens with juicy citrus and sweet, bright herbal notes, with a slight undernote of black pepper, the company says. Soft woodland notes accompany the more traditional, aromatic pine and spice, grounded in an earthy, herbaceous base, it notes. The finish is long and smooth, allowing the flavors to continue to reveal themselves long after the gin leaves the palate, it adds.
Packaged in 750-ml bottles, the 43% ABV Mr. Pickles can be purchased for a suggested retail price of $34.99 a bottle at retailers across the United States and online at the company’s website.
