Distilled with juniper, coriander, angelica, orris root and other select botanicals,
then infused with berries and allowed to steep in our high proof gin. Ube is added later in the infusion. Berry fruits and ube are filtered from the solution at 25 microns.
This tasty gin is a pleasure to the eye as well, with its vivid and exotic amethyst color. Intended to be a “sipping gin” over ice this makes a fantastic martini, or gin smash using a blueberry jam and soda Cheers!
80 Proof (ABV 40%)
We are a craft distillery producing world-class whiskies and gins – as seen in our multiple gold, double gold and other awards from national and international competitions. We make tasty and enjoyable gin for people who “think” they don’t like gin. All our spirits are sipping spirits – meant to taste great right out of the bottle. After some years in company and product development, including a move to- and then back from Canada (!), we are wholly committed to super premium quality, using organic, sustainable and renewable ingredients whenever available. The 2 co founders, Ernie and Leigh Troth have backgrounds in international business and trade, project and product development and quality control. Leigh has also been a senior software developer.
Ernie Troth hails from Washington State, but has lived and worked close to 15 years abroad, mostly in Europe and the Middle East. He holds a BA degree from Chicago, an MA in International Economics from Geo. Washington University in DC, and an MBA in International Marketing from New Haven. After working abroad, he settled in Virginia, where he met his wife, Leigh. During the course of business development for the distillery, Ernie worked part-time and as a volunteer worker at both US and Canadian distilleries, took courses from the American Distilling Institute and others. Developing sensory perception for distillates is an acquired ability, and he combines the sensory process with chemistry and detailed analytics.
Round, sweet notes from
blueberries are completed with haskap berries
(June berries from Minnesota), saskatoon berries
form Saskatchewan, Canada, black currants (USA)
and wild-harvested Oregon grape which provides
a subtle lemony top note. We use just enough
juniper to know it’s a gin, and end with a
wonderful vanilla and pistachio finish from the
Pacific island ube. Product of USA.
