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, all the botanicals are distilled in fractions, meaning that each component of is distilled separately and then blended to create the finished spirit. Unlike mass-produced gins where the flavors are muddled or can be overpowering, fractional distillation allows each individual note to be highlighted, resulting in a softer, more refined, and more approachable spirit. Finally, each gin is 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 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.

Gin has come a long way since its infamous origins as the scourge of the working classes in 18th century in England. Once called "mother's ruin," gin and its closest relative, Jenever, enjoyed mass popularity during the early 20th century, in cocktails and punches across the globe, but declined with cocktail culture in the 60's and 70's. The international resurgence of martinis and speakeasies has led to a boom in microdistilleries producing high-quality gins for all tastes, from dry to sweet, and with all the aromatic variety of a spice market.
