Cape Cod-based distillery adds third hand-crafted spirit to its portfolio
May 2, 2016 – Truro, MA—South Hollow Spirits, Cape Cod’s first craft distillery since Prohibition, today announces the launch of the latest addition to their line, Dry Line Cape Cod Gin. This new gin will join an award-winning collection of small batch, twice-distilled spirits including Twenty Boat Hand-Crafted Cape Cod Amber Rum and Twenty Boat Hand-Crafted Cape Cod Spiced Rum.
Named after the juniper-producing Eastern Red Cedar that is only grown east of the 100° Meridian, Dry Line Gin embodies Yankee ingenuity, from its inventive recipe to the self-taught virtuosity of its distillers. Dry Line Gin is crafted by fermenting sugar cane juice for three weeks before distilling, then steeping the mixture in a 55 gallon steel drum for 48 hours with a carefully curated local selection of botanicals, including Eastern Red Cedar juniper berries, orange peel, lemon peel, cardamom, allspice, coriander, orris root, grains of paradise, angelica root, anise and dried cranberry. This infusion method enables the spirit to absorb essential oils from the botanicals before it is redistilled and brought to its final proof of 94. This process results in a carefully blended palate embodying the spirit of the seaside Cape Cod town where Dry Line Gin is distilled.
“Crafting a gin was a natural next step in our spirits line extension,” said Dave Roberts Jr., Head Distiller of South Hollow Spirits. “To keep with our belief in sourcing products locally, using our homegrown juniper and angelica root was the icing on the cake. My family and I greatly look forward to sharing our recipe and this spirit that imparts flavors reminiscent of Truro.”
In celebration of the Dry Line Gin launch, guests are invited to toast with the founders at Boston’s #1 rooftop hot-spot, The Lookout Rooftop Bar at The Envoy Hotel on May 10th from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. and at Cape Cod’s world-renowned beachfront luxury hotel, Chatham Bars Inn, on May 13th from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. Both events include two free cocktails and appetizers; Boston is $35/person and Cape Cod is $10/person.
