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. It is now owned by Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds, which adds even more coolness to it!
You can also now personalise your Aviation Gin bottle with a special engraved message directly on the bottle!
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 flavours in cocktails. It was described by the New York Times as “smooth, clean and very dry with assertive, classic flavours of juniper and citrus: a martini with one eyebrow raised”.
Happy Independence Day
So there you have it, a selection of gins from the USA to try this Independence Day or any day!
