New Spirits Join Johnson Brothers Portfolio

By May 24, 2022Rhode Island, Top News

Johnson Brothers of Rhode Island welcomed two new spirits imports. The first: Silks Irish Dry Gin, from the family-owned Boann Distillery in the historic Boyne Valley of Ireland. This marks its first Irish gin export to the U.S. portfolio in partnership with Prestige Beverage Group. Silks Gin is distilled by hand in small batches in Boann Distillery’s custom copper pot still and contains 14 botanicals, offering aromas and flavors of orange peel, fresh blossom, and notes of apple complementing the juniper backbone with a honey finish. A contemporary gin with bright citrus aromas, its packaging is inspired by the colorful jockey silks worn at the historic Bellewstown racecourse, beside the distillery. The second addition new to Rhode Island is from the Caribbean in the form of Ron Diaz Peach, offering Barbados rum with juicy peach flavors. At 21% ABV, Ron Diaz Peach joins the portfolio of fine flavored Caribbean rums.
