We start with our London Dry style gin and then do a cold infusion of organic kumquat, mandarin and tangerine zest along with orange blossom extract. After filtering out the zest the citrus forward flavors remain. This Gold- and Silver-Medal award winner from the U.S. Open Spirits Competition, Bartender Spirits Awards and American Distilling Institute makes a superb mule with ginger ale and lime, but is at heart a great sipping gin over ice. Our "Lochside Summer Gin No. 5" shows our love of summer events with family and friends!
We are a craft distillery producing world-class whiskies and gins – as seen in our multiple gold, doublegold and other awards from national and international competitions. We make tasty and enjoyable ginfor people who “think” they don’t like gin. All our spirits are sipping spirits – meant to taste great rightout of the bottle. After some years in company and product development, including a move to- andthen back from Canada (!), we are wholly committed to super premium quality, using organic,sustainable and renewable ingredients whenever available.
