Product Description

A batch-distilled American gin that's inspired by the fuller-bodied Dutch style and championed by Ryan Reynolds, whose body we can't comment on for legal reasons.

Created by distillers Lee Medoff and Christian Krogstad, who teamed up with Seattle mixologist Ryan Magarian, this spicy, floral gin is made with rye neutral grain spirit and a ‘botanical democracy’ of juniper, cardamom, coriander, lavender, anise, sarsaparilla and orange peel.

This is, unsurprisingly, excellent in an Aviation cocktail, but also works well in a Martini and a G&T.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes from Spirits Review (Chris Carlsson)

    • Notes

      From the land of the serious foodies comes another small distiller with a completely different take on Gin. Made in a small pot still and handcrafting each batch the small scale production and attention to detail show you what is possible if you have the skills and dedication. Utilizing a traditional Dutch or early American Rye grain base (which brings it's own zest, spiciness and weight compared to corn or wheat base spirits) and a much more even handed blending approach (read less juniper than a London Dry Gin).

    • First Impression

      Not your father's (or mother's) gin. Juniper is not the first and defining characteristic. Saspirilla, lavender and some anise wrap around cardamom and orange peel, with coriander lingering around the edges.This is in addition to a unmistakable spiciness and earthiness that the rye base brings to the mix.

    • Taste

      Medium to heavy body played off by the blending of the floral and spicy. Pleasantly heavy rye and spice entry with floral lavender and anise top notes. mild tingling on the lips and tongue with floral spice and grain finish lingering nicely. Very clean distillation.

    • Drinks

      Makes a excellent and singular martini-especially for those people who are not a fan of juniper. Outstanding gin and tonic with the lavender and bubbles making for a unexpected and delightful surprise. The Aviation is truly outstanding: 4 parts gin, 1 part fresh lemon juice, 1 part maraschino liqueur (dry). It even makes a interesting, if slightly sacrilegious, Lassi.

    • Final Thoughts

      A very praiseworthy attempt at creating at completely different gin. While taking a old style genever or American style base they have added a deft sense of blending,maceration and distillation to create a truly outstanding Gin.This is the gin to use to resurrect those classic pre-Prohibition American cocktail recipes such as the Alamagoozlum and a host of others, that simply cannot be done with a London Dry. Amazingly cheap compared to all its competitors and a must have for the discerning gin connoisseur.

    Alex,

    Utterly disgusting. An overwhelming amount of lavender and aniseed poisons the tongue and clogs your nose. Mixing made the experience worse, and it overpowers and destroys anything it is placed with. It is very strong, and burns your mouth and lips. This is a truly revolting and terrible gin that has been overpriced and placed in an attractive bottle. Avoid at all costs.

    Good gin, but not that special. Good for dry martini cocktail.
