An authentic light & floral craft Gin from Tampa, Florida.

There doesn't need to be an elaborate and complex story behind a distillery and brand. When Matthew Allen and Brandon Marshall decided to venture into distilling, it was with the simplest of goals: to make bloody delicious Spirits. This is how the Cerberus Craft Distillery came to be, and with it the Dark Door Spirits brand. But they wouldn't just be making your regular booze, no siree. Their first release in 2016 was the Spirit of IPA, an IPA Whiskey, and a sign of things to come. The guys went ahead and unleashed their creativity, soon ending up with a lineup of authentic Spirits that challenged the norm.

Their focus on innovation with an emphasis on superior quality is what defines the award-winning Spirit of Prohibition, a lavender-flavored Gin. The base is a neutral grain Spirit that gets distilled in their 1,000-liter column still. The 11 botanicals get added via individual tea bags that are left to soak in the liquid for 2 to 3 days. These botanicals are as follows: juniper berries, cardamom, coriander, angelica root, ginger root, pink peppercorn, various citrus peels (grapefruit, lemon, lime, and orange), and licorice root. Finally, the Spirit passes through a finishing still with the steam passing through juniper berries on its way up, before being returned into the metal container, where lavender and rose hips are added. After 2 weeks, the deliciously floral and lavendery Gin is done!

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.
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.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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!
