Cold River Gin is entirely handcrafted at the Maine Distilleries facility in Freeport, Maine. Every bottle is hand-numbered, a sign of this craftsmanship. Cold River Gin is gluten-free and 100% all natural.
Cold River Gin is produced using alcohol made from Maine potatoes and a secret blend of seven traditional botanicals: juniper berries, coriander, lemon peel, orange peel, orris root, angelica root and cardamom. The recipe dates back to the early days of British gin.
To create Cold River Gin, the secret blend of botanicals is steeped in an alcohol/water solution within the pot still for several hours. This steeping process allows the alcohol to infiltrate the botanicals and begin to take on their essential flavors. The solution is then distilled, resulting in a very high proof gin spirit with the perfect balance of botanical flavor. This gin spirit is then blended with the same pristine spring water that gives the gin its name, water drawn from the Cold River Aquifer at the Green Thumb Farms. Cold River Gin is bottled at 94 proof (47% alcohol by volume).
