About Filibuster Dual Cask Gin
The filibuster is a powerful parliamentary procedure in the United States Senate that allows a Senator to speak indefinitely on any subject of his or her choosing in order to prevent a vote on legislation. Filibuster Distillery was founded in Washington D.C., near Capitol Hill and the name was chosen as a tribute to the freedom of expression that is a part of what makes America great.
They are extremely proud of their lineup, which is built on the purest limestone-filtered water ― according to some, Shenandoah limestone enriches the water with even more desirable minerals than can be found in much-lauded limestone-filtered Kentucky water. Only the finest quality grains are used in this bio-sustainable operation and are converted into poultry feed after use. What really sets them apart, is their proprietary Dual Cask finishing program, where the traditional charred, new American oak barrels are joined by various different wine casks. "Filibuster Whiskey is so good," says Sid Dilawri, the brand's founder, "that you won't stop talking about it."
Beside several whiskeys in their range, they also produce Filibuster Gin. It employs their signature Dual Cask finishing, using American and French oak barrels. This results in an incredibly rich and smooth spirit, which is further elevated by an infusion of basil, lemon verbena, and rosemary ― all grown in Shenandoah County. This makes for a particularly unique gin that fuses the richness of oak aging with floral and herbal notes and an overall smoothness that has captivated drinkers and dazzled competitions.
