Lavender! Great as a moth repellant, even better in Gin.

When Ellensburg Distillery set up shop in 2008 it was — believe it or not — only the second licensed Washington State's distillery. At the time, co-owner Rusty Figgins couldn't quite figure out what sort of still he wanted, so he went about frankensteining his own using 2 grundy tanks normally used in beer brewing. Apparently, good things come to those who experiment, as the strange contraption turned out to have many benefits compared to your regular run-of-the-mill still. With plenty of tinkering here and there over the years he perfected the invention, which has since become an integral part in many a distillery across the nation, churning out everything from Whiskey to Vodka. And it's not just a thing to behold — the beast heats up faster and is way more efficient in extracting alcohol, eliminating the need for a second distillation.

The machine has since served Ellensburg Distillery in making various Spirits ranging from Wildcat White Whiskey to White Horse Vodka, Brandy, and — this is the one we're gathered for here today — Gin. Just like the unusual still it came from, they didn't settle for just any regular old Gin. As the area is famous for its dry and sunny weather, lavender thrives in the wild. Hey, lavender and Gin play off each other quite nicely, but why go about throwing a regular sprig into your drink, when you can add the stuff right at the distilling process? Well, that's just what they did, upgrading the 8 standard Gin botanicals. And this, kids, is how the Amethyst Handcrafted Lavender Gin came to be. As the name implies, all the lavender comes from their own Spring Creek farm and the liquid is vapor-distilled using that epic monster of a still.

Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color

Nose/ Aroma / Smell
The lavender is as subtle as it is conspicuous on the nose and leads the charge for junipers, fruity and zesty citrus notes and spice.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is more juniper forward, as well as having pleasant citrusy notes, coriander, spice, and a hint of earthiness.

It finishes wonderfully fresh and crisp with echoes of lavender, juniper, and spice. 
Ratings & Reviews
Delicious and versatile. Lavender flavor is prevalent but not overwhelming. Still has the normal Gin characteristic flavors, but more muted as to let the Lavender shine. The Lavender is not "soapy" or powdery, but more of a light floral touch. Great with citrus soda water and in a Mule.
On the nose: Lavender. On the palate, softer lavender mixed with juniper and citrus. Complex enough for use as a slow sipper on the rocks or even neat, but also good mixed with tonic or vermouth. With tonic, don't overdo the tonic -- it can cover up the lavender-centered complexity.
A little too much lavender for me.
Soft and rounded on the front palate, with the lavender manifesting in the finish. Use a lighter tonic to maximize the lavender. Makes one hell of a Bees Knees.
A solid choice. Wasn't as lavender forward as I hoped but I still enjoyed it. Smooth texture.
Love it. The aroma had me hooked. So I bought it again. This is one gin I will keep in stock.
Just plain weak!!! Way to soft, not any push!!
