Occasio Winery Rolls Out New Gin, Wines

John Kinney and Dave Hendrickson have been hard at work perfecting the three new gins they are set to bottle, now that they have label approval on two out of the three. “Learning the TTB rules for distillates takes a little navigating,” admits Kinney. “We’ve learned a lot about how to do spirit labels. Wine labels are pretty much interchangeable between front and back, but spirits rules are very strict.” They’ve got special bottles with glass stoppers lined up for silkscreening and are pretty excited about the contents.

The first gin, called Dry Gin, is their juniper forward example, pretty typical and market-friendly. The second is called Botanical Gin, with very amped up aromatics, owing to a more floral presence, including influences from cucumber and roses. Kinney says it is quite reminiscent of Hendricks gin, known for its essence of Damask rose.
