Waymar Gin House is launching its brand-new Ambrosial Series comprised of four fortified wine cask finished gins from the Southern region of Spain. This launch quickly follows the release of the brand’s flagship product, the Waymar Gin House Signature Dry Gin, the company states.

Aged in fortified wines casks, Waymar’s Signature Dry Gin melds with the wood, wine and climate in Tennessee to enhance the original botanical blend. Each 96-proof gin was aged in a different type of oak for seven months before it reached completion, offering a unique flavor profile for each expression, according to the company.

“Cask finished expressions, and more specifically, the Ambrosial Series, has been a brain child of Morningside Brands and Waymar Gin House,” said Jack Perkins, President & CEO of Waymar Gin House, in a news release. “We’ve always been a believer of using exotic casks to achieve flavors not before possible with base spirits. It was this thought process that led us to our first cask expressions reinventing classic cocktails and discovering new flavors. As an example, the Dry Vermouth finish is about achieving a Martini straight out of the bottle. The Ambrosial Series is just the start of reimagining what’s possible with gin.”
