Iowa distiller to debut its first gin

LeCLAIRE, IA -- The Mississippi River Distilling Company is about to introduce its second product, which like its first relies on Midwestern grain.

The distiller will unveil River Rose Gin next Friday, April 15. It joins the original product, the grain-based River Baron Vodka, which in mid-2010 was the distiller's first product.

The gin is a proprietary blend of botanicals from a recipe dating to the late 1800s. It has a lighter touch of juniper than the average gin, with notes of orange, grapefruit, lemon, rose petals, lavender and locally grown cucumbers.

Each bottle of spirits from the distiller is numbered to show the batch and bottle number.
