About Koval Gin Trio Gift Pack
Koval is a craft distillery that was founded in Chicago in 2008 ― the first distillery to open its doors within Chicago’s city limits since Prohibition. Founders Robert and Sonat Birnecker left their professional lives in academia to found the company. They have been crafting certified organic whiskeys, brandies, liqueurs, and specialty spirits from scratch ever since. Being the first distillery within city limits since the mid-1800s, Koval brings Austrian distilling traditions to America. The distillery is named after Sonat's great-grandfather, who earned the nickname Koval (Yiddish for "black sheep") when he emigrated from Vienna to Chicago at the start of the 1900s to start a business at a young age of 17. The second co-founder Robert was bequeathed a treasure trove of distilling knowledge and expertise from his grandfather, Robert Schimd.
In the Gin industry, the commonplace practice is to purchase ready-made bottled spirits to produce a distillate. At Koval they do things differently, making all of their gins from scratch using organic ingredients. Their innovative signature style uses only the heart of the distillate, which is believed to offer a brighter, cleaner spirit. Koval is a grain to glass operation, each step of their organic production process meticulously monitored to ensure the finest quality. First Koval contracts local farmers to grow grain that is to be milled and mashed on-site. Then the liquid is distilled, bottled, and packaged on-site. Koval is one of America’s premier small-batch, independent spirit manufacturers.
This gift pack contains their 3 award-winning gin expressions: Dry Gin, Cranberry Gin Liqueur, and Barreled Gin. The Dry Gin is crafted with unique woodland spices and has a vibrant and pleasant profile with juniper and floral notes. It's equally suited for cocktails and drinking straight. Fruit-forward and bittersweet, the Cranberry Gin Liqueur is equally versatile. It's a delicious aperitif that pairs particularly well with sparkling wine when mixed. The Barrelled Gin bridges the gap between gin and whiskey, having matured in Koval's whiskey barrels for an added layer of butterscotch and spice notes. Each of these has garnered several of the most prestigious awards.

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.
