Hand crafted, hand bottled, hand labelled, and hand numbered, this small batch gin is truly unique.
Master distiller Todd Leopold handicrafts every batch in a small 40-gallon copper still, blending uniquely American botanicals like hand-zested Florida Oranges and California Pummelos. These components lend citrus notes to the gin, and help distinguish American gins from their English counterparts.
All botanicals are distilled in fractions, meaning that each component of gin is distilled separately and then blended together to create the finished spirit. Unlike mass-produced gins where the flavours can appear to be muddled together, and stronger spices such as juniper can overpower the balance of the gin, distilling in fractions allows each individual note to be highlighted. The result is a softer, more refined, and more approachable spirit. The gin is also crafted in small batches, rather than in a continuous still. Thus while there is marked consistency from batch to batch, each has its own unique signature – much like fine wine.
Each hand crafted batch is unique, yielding only fifty cases of an exceptionally complex yet subtle spirit which both those new to American Gin and the connoisseur will appreciate.
