Aviation Gin takes its name from the classic Aviation cocktail. Distilled in Portland US, by Lee Medoff and Christian Krogstad, who teamed up with Seattle mixologist Ryan Magarian to produce a new style of Gin. In 2006, after nearly 30 rounds of trials and adjustments, their vision became reality when the trio felt they had finally captured the essence of their obsessions. The Aviation took off.

But, is Aviation Gin really a Gin? It depends how you look at it, we believe it is. Distilled from rye, it carries a rich flavor and an excellent, somewhat oily mouthfeel, quite different from your typical London dry Gin.

What does Aviation Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Aviation 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.

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!
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.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
