A perfectly crafted Gin that's made in America and good enough to make James Bond change up his favorite recipe.

The Do Good Distillery sits in an old, abandoned firehouse in Roscoe, New York — a rural part of the state just about halfway to Canada. That old firehouse was built in 1929, smack dab in the middle of the Prohibition era, or what we adult-beverage lovers refer to as "The American Dark Ages." The two friends and founders — Brian Facquet and John Walsh — decided to risk it all, and things went mostly uphill from there. They started with their signature Vodka, and have since expanded to a Gin, Bourbon, and Bourbon Cream. The distillery got its name from a toast by Facquet's buddy from the Navy.

Their Gin follows a classic recipe of botanicals; juniper (of course), coriander, bitter orange peel, and orris root start things off squarely placed in Gin history. Then they add lemon verbena leaf, a decidedly New World herb that really adds a nice, lemony, minty, and herbal something to the mix. They take a real "less-is-more" approach to this simple recipe, steeping those simple five botanicals for a full 24 hours in 120-proof corn Spirit to draw our the essential oils, then bottling the elixir at 94 proof... And it's ready to go into your next G&T or a classic cocktail. It is amazing as a replacement for Beefeater in a Vesper Martini… seriously, try it! The botanicals marry perfectly with the Lillet Blanc and it just works.

Appearance / Color
Crystal clear with a silvery glint in the glass.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
It's a juniper-forward nose for sure, closer to a London Dry with that distinct piney earthiness.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
It's very smooth and refreshing with juniper and a balance of citrus, namely grapefruit and orange. Coriander spices it up and there's a floral touch in there as well.

Finish
The finish is clean and smooth.

The poppy features on the label of every bottle of Prohibition Distillery Spirits, as a symbol of remembrance and a nod to fallen soldiers.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
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.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
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.
