Junipero Gin

Junipero Gin

70cl | 49.3% ABV | U.S.A.

Junipero Gin, made by Hotalin & Co in Portero Hill, San Francisco, is a classic gin for the modern age, with a big, bold flavour spurred on by the fiery ABV.

At the title suggests, Junipero Gin is a tribute to juniper, but it's not a singular affair, with the spices bringing a deep, bruising flavour and a soft citrus oil easing the mouthfeel. It makes for an exceptionally boozy Martini.

Key Flavours

"Junipero was one of the first gins to emerge in the USA's craft distilling revolution and is an homage to gin's hero botanical. Pure class and an expression than deserves a lot more air time."

About this product

Junipero Gin is pot distilled and follows a fairly simple recipe, with big juniper joined by angelica, aniseed, cardamom, cassia, coriander, cubeb, grains of paradise, lemon, orange and orris.

Hotalin – known as Anchor Distilling at the time – was created by Fritz Maytag, who can most definitely be named as one of those responsible for the explosion of Craft gin over on that side of the Atlantic.

Hotalin showed itself to be ballsy when it created the first pot-distilled American Whiskey way back in 1993. Five years later, and decades ahead of Gin’s resurgence, Junipero Gin was born.

St. George Dry Rye Gin

Using a base of 100% pot-distilled rye, this a gin for whiskey lovers. With a malty structure, peppery spice, and an impossibly rich mouthfeel, Dry Rye Gin is a half way house between gin and genever.

"Malty notes from the rye base are clear but it's worth noting that there's also 50% more juniper than in either of their other two gins, which comes in handy in cocktails like a Martinez or Negroni."
