Aviation

Founded in 2006
Aviation Gin was born in 2006, after Seattle bartender, Ryan Magarian, was gifted a bottle of botanical infused Spirit by a friend from Portland, Oregon.

Ryan sought out the makers, House Spirits Distillery, and there began a journey between distiller and bartender to create something unique, with a true taste of the Pacific Northwest. 

Aviation Gin takes its name from the classic Aviation cocktail. It's distilled in Portland, by Lee Medoff and Christian Krogstad, who teamed up with the Seattle mixologist to produce this new style of Gin.

Aviation is a departure from the classic, juniper-heavy London Dry style of Gin, and instead has a more balanced botanical profile, featuring lavender, sarsaparilla and anise seed; and a sweetness which complements its name-sake cocktail perfectly.

What does Aviation taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Aviation gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

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