  • 33 oz Bulldog Gin
  • 33 oz Campari

Age 3-4 weeks in a 3L barrel and sample along the way to see how it changes, then empty the barrel into a decanter.

Stir once you pour it from the barrel.

Add an orange zest to taste.

Can the Negroni be left in the barrel longer than 3 weeks? For example, if you make. 5 litre batch to have ready by June, can it be left in the barrel and drank over the course of the summer?

Thanks. Kevin

With a 5 litre Negroni your sweet spot is going to be around 80 to 90 days! When your using Campari in a barrel it takes much longer to over oak, so what I recommend is after 60 days start tasting every second week until you get to your desired preference.

Cheers and Happy Aging,
