Handcrafted, hand bottled, hand labeled, and hand numbered, this small batch gin is truly unique. First, it is an American Gin. Master Distiller Todd Leopold handcrafts 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.
Second, we distill all of our botanicals in fractions, meaning that we distill each component of our gin separately and then blend them together to create the finished spirit. Unlike mass-produced gins where the flavors 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.
Finally, we craft our gin 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 handcrafted 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.
