About Berkshire Mountain Distillers Barreled Ethereal GinWhen Chris Weld, founder and master distiller at Berkshire Mountain Distillers, was thirteen years old, he set about building a still for his eighth-grade science project. "My dad was a Scotch drinker, so I'd gotten it in my head that I wanted to build my very own still," he says. When he learned that distilling spirits without a license was a federal offense, "well, that kind of put the kibosh on the whole plan."
In 2007, he decided to try again. After purchasing some property in the shadow of the Berkshire Mountains in Sheffield, Massachusetts, Weld opened the doors to Berkshire Mountain Distillers. At the time, the land was little more than a dilapidated apple farm, but it did sport a legendary hot spring that was once deemed to produce the finest water in the world. Back in the 19th century, the water from the spring was thought to be so curative and therapeutic that people would travel across the country in order to drink from it. While Weld doesn't claim that the spring water — which is rich in minerals and naturally granite-filtered — has any mystical healing powers, he does swear by it.
The town's first legal distillery since Prohibition, Berkshire Mountain Distillers is a genuine artisanal brand, crafting award-winning spirits in small batches, whilst supporting local agriculture by using regionally sourced ingredients.
Berkshire’s Ethereal Gin series is a limited edition collection, the variables in its recipe, and brightly colored label changing with each batch. This barrel aged Ethereal Expression No. 2 spends more than twelve months in ex-bourbon barrels. With its notes of honey and vanilla this gin has a silky smooth body and a balanced botanical mixture of brown spice, citrus, angelica, orris and juniper, with subtle hints of wood. "This gin should be imbibed any way you like, straight up, in a cocktail or a good old G an T, enjoy” (producer).

According to Winston Churchill, "The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen's lives and minds than all the doctors in the Empire," referring to the British officers using it to treat malaria in India.
Initially made for medicinal purposes, gin gets most of its flavor from the juniper berries added after the distillation process. It sure has come a long way from the Middle Ages, with the introduction of new botanicals, fruits, and spices, bringing it closer to people of all flavor varieties.
