IWSC 2022 Gold 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. Won a Gold medal at the International Wine & Spirits Competition 2022.

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.

No. 209 Gin

With a creamy base and a profile so classic it would stand up to any old school cocktail, 209 Gin is a deep dive through a juniper forest, punctuated with a lively pin prick of bergamot to sharpen...

"The distillery's flagship gin is almost the very definition of contemporary classic. It has all that juniper and resinous core, but with a modern flourish that brings it into the 21st century. The higher ABV helps carry it in cocktails too."

Chase GB Gin

Chase's Great British Extra Dry Gin is smooth & full-bodied, perfectly balanced with juniper, spice and citrus. A must-try for gin lovers and a good choice for those looking for a workhorse gin...

"Using their potato Chase Vodka as a base, the full-bodied nature of the Gin comes through strong here. It's classic overall juniper and spices are balanced with a lemon peel freshness."

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."

Conker Dorset Dry Gin

A slight twist on a classic London Dry profile, Conker Dry Gin is well-balanced and Juniper-led, but with the bright and refreshing Dorset notes of elderberries, samphire and handpicked gorse flowers...

"Both Conker gin and the team are the embodiment of the Craft movement. To taste, gorse, samphire and elderberries are so well balanced on a classic juniper core the gin’s unique, yet it’s one that you’ll find yourself returning to over and again."
