A beautiful, text-book example of the Mid-Atlantic Gin style.

Once upon a time, Gil Spaier, the founder and distiller at All Points West, was an architect. And he says he might’ve still been one, but it just so happened that he had come across Philip Roth’s American Pastoral. And then? Well, it sparked interest in old industrial Newark where he had just moved with his wife and where immigrants used to pioneer and staff breweries in the Ironbound neighborhood. Sadly, none of those remained. But Spaier never let go of the idea of using traditional Irish pot-still methods on barley and corn Spirit and about 15 years later, in 2017, All Points West was born. And then? Just 2 years later, their Whiskey got the Gold Medal plus "Whiskey of the Year" from the USA Spirit Rating Competition and they’ve been going strong ever since.

Besides being really good at making Whiskey, All Points West also makes delicious Vodka, Rum and Gin in the meantime. Their Cathouse Gin is the text-book example of the Mid-Atlantic Gin style: this basically means it’s softer, richer and broader in flavor than London Dry style. Crafted with 13 selectively sourced botanicals – 9 of those provide classic top notes and aromas, while the other 4, including elderberry, rose hip, liquorice and Cinnamomum verum make up for the broad balancing richness. It’s bold, it’s contemporary and we can’t be the only ones who find it quite good, too, as it won the Gold Medal at the 2019 John Barleycorn Awards.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Cathouse Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Cathouse Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
