Ahhh, there’s nothing like some killer press to help garner attention for any wine or spirit brand.  Small’s, our American Dry Gin that we produce in the rolling hills of the Willamette Valley, Oregon, received 92 points from the esteemed Beverage Tasting Institute. BTI has been around for nearly three decades and is regarded as one of the foremost respected institutes for the judging and rating of spirits from around the world. Thank you BTI for reviewing our gin and for the great praise.

92 Points – SMALL’S American Dry Gin:

Clear. Dried flowers, onion-pepper relish, lime custard pastry, and green herbal juniper
aromas follow through on a round, supple
entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with bright herbal depth and a smoothness. Finishes with a long, fresh cut pine, pink pepper, wintergreen, lemongrass and violet-lavender talc fade. Quite a lot going on here, very impressive. Will make for super flavorful, crafty cocktails. (tasted on Jul-28-2010)

This is who BTI is:

The Beverage Testing Institute was founded in 1981 with the objective of producing fair and impartial wine reviews for consumers. Today, this philosophy still holds true.

Over the years, our buying guides have appeared in the Wine Enthusiast, Restaurant Hospitality, The New Yorker Magazine, Wine & Spirits, International Wine Review, Epicurious.com, All About Beer, and many others.

Currently we produce a popular free website, Tastings.com and publish a monthly e-newsletter calledeTastings .
