    Distillery: "Our western Sonoma County location is about unfettered creativity. We like to tinker with our concoctions to coax each spirit into something distinct and undeniably delicious. We begin by carefully selecting the finest grains, fruits and botanicals available then combine innovation with traditional distilling methods to create an exquisitely balanced spirit that speaks for itself.

    Starting in our own back yard, we've looked to the best places around the globe to source the 12 components for our Gin. We've taken classic components of Juniper, Coriander, and local citrus to new heights by adding a touch of chamomile, mint and exotic warm spice elements.Juniper is what gives Gin its distinctive taste. It's the only legally required flavoring component for Gin. We've discovered that Italian Juniper best frames the botanical's savory pine characteristics with ripe fruity and floral notes. Tuscany provides a warmer sunnier ripening climate than Central or Eastern Europe where Juniper is commonly sourced. Hot-vapor extraction in our botanical baskets brings out fruity, rich aromatic flavors in our Juniper.  

    We carefully vapor distill each component separately to ensure it tastes the most flavorful. The result is a balanced yet bold expression of Gin that is a pleasure to drink neat and also stands up to flavorful, complex cocktails. Local mixologists call our gin “cocktail perfect” for its balance and versatility.

    The taste is big, bold and still well-balanced. It touches every part of the palate. Rich, ripe juniper is well-integrated and provides the framework. Citrus and exotic fruit flavors enhance and brighten the botanicals. On the nose, there’s the scent of warm cardamom, baking spices, truffle-like angelica earthiness and floral chamomile notes. On the palate, the full flavors are balanced by sweetness from star anise and creaminess from the orris root. The gin dances on the finish, with a touch of cool mint and peppery spice from the galangal and grains of paradise."
