Celebrate Independence Day with American Gin

American Gin for Independence Day

It's the great American holiday of fireworks, bbq, baseball, and family, but something not many would associate with Independence Day is gin. So here at Taste, we have created a selection of American gins to try and fall in love with.

Brooklyn Gin – An Independent New York Gin

Our first American Gin is a multiple award winner. Brooklyn Gin has been awarded double gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition amongst other notable accolades. Made with 100% fresh hand-cut citrus peels and hand-cracked juniper, Brooklyn Gin is a vibrant gin made in New York by an independent distiller, making this the perfect choice to celebrate Independence Day.

Deaths Door Gin – The Utility Gin

A simple yet effective gin made with only three botanicals each coming through in the taste. Juniper berries up front; citrusy coriander seeds in the mid-palate; and cooling fennel seeds to finish. This makes it a gin that is great for sipping neat or as the base to any popular gin cocktail. This is the perfect gin to have at hand in any home bar.

Aviation Gin – The American Gin

What better gin for Independence Day that the gin that calls itself simply, “American Gin”. A true American original, it was created by two friends who wanted to create an original prohibition gin, with juniper subtly in the background, perfect for mixing just like in the speakeasies.

Junipero – Something a Little Stronger

At 49.3% ABV, it’s stronger than the other gins featured on this page. Junípero is not chill-filtered, allowing the botanicals to marry gently and shine through the finished gin, bringing forward the flavors in cocktails. It was described by the New York Times as “smooth, clean and very dry with assertive, classic flavors of juniper and citrus: a martini with one eyebrow raised”.
