Gin category Winner of the Flaviar Community Awards 2018.
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.

Juniper and cardamom infused milk. Hint of smoke and freshly cut grass, with spa-like characteristics driven by the lavender, coriander and sweet orange. Spice notes from caraway, anise and pepper.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Pleasantly heavy rye and spice entry with floral lavender and anise top notes, followed by juniper, cardamom, coriander and dried orange peel.
Lightly sweet clean finish with citrus pith, some peppery spice and lite smokiness.
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.
