The name Koval means "blacksmith," in numerous Eastern European languages, but
the word in Yiddish also refers to a "black sheep" or someone who forges ahead
or does something new or out of the ordinary. Sonat's great-grandfather earned
Koval as his nickname when, at the ripe old age of 17, he surprised his family
and emigrated from Vienna to Chicago in the early 1900s to start a business. The
distillery only produces small batch, hand crafted spirits and has a bevy of
awards that prove their attention to detail. To achieve this goal, Sonat
Birnecker Hart and her husband, Master Distiller Robert Birnecker, founded one
of the first urban craft distilleries in the US, KOVAL Distillery, where she has
spearheaded much of the product development, distribution and marketing.
Koval Dry Gin
Made with a unique variety of woodland spices. Juniper and wildflowers envelop
the nose, while the taste is dry, yet vibrant - clean and nuanced by emerald
grasses, golden citrus, and white pepper with a round, floral body. The
Birneckers use 13 different botanicals to produce their KOVAL gin. You can
clearly spot juniper, citrus and wild flowers in the aroma. The taste is
definitely dry and has some notes of fennel, vanilla and lavender. The dry
finish is rounded off by some white pepper and remains on the tongue for quite a
while. The palate is creamy and rich, with juniper bringing some fresh pine and
resinous notes, the florals really take blossom on the palate. The finish is
medium length and quite warm. Piney and dry, it’s satisfying and classic at the
end. Crisp enough to enjoy straight and of course excellent in cocktails both
classic and contemporary.

Fans of KOVAL Dry Gin will taste a similarly crisp spirit with
flavors from rose hip, juniper, angelica root, and coriander, but will
appreciate a new level of depth and oak from the spirit's time resting in a
KOVAL whiskey barrel. The attention to detail that KOVAL's grain-to-bottle
process allows shines through in the final product, offering a unique spirit
that appeals to gin and whiskey drinkers alike.
