A refreshingly modern and sophisticated Gin.
Founded in 2013, Durham Distillery is the fruit of love. No, seriously, it was opened by a loving married couple Melissa and Lee Katrincic who had the brilliant idea of bringing together art and science and rethinking how traditional Gin can exist in modern times. They were the first distillers in the United States to leverage vacuum cold distillation with rotary evaporators. It’s things like that that got Melissa and Lee to become the first distillers from the American South to be inducted into the Gin Guild in London. Today, their Conniption Gins are one of the most awarded in the country. Bringing together time-honored Gin distillation techniques and modern chemistry, the result showcases the complexity and quality of each ingredient. The Katrincic couple is serious about their Gin: these two even founded the United States Gin Association in 2021 to promote passion for Gin among US distillers.
Conniption American Dry Gin fuses traditional small-batch distillation with modern lab methods. The botanicals like Indian coriander, angelica root, and cardamom are vapor infused in their custom-deisgned German pot still before cucumber, citrus, and honeysuckle flowers are vacuum distilled individually at room temperature. You want to know about the result? Clean, crisp, and complex, the flavor profile if refreshingly modern and sophisticated. This one’s got plenty of awards to show off, too, including Silver at the prestigious San Francisco World Competition, Gold at World Gin Awards, Silver at IWSC…

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Conniption American Dry 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.
The New World is having a Ginaissance!
Mmm... The Art of Distillation. One of the greatest triumphs of the Old World. When this art met the unending cornfields of the New World, it resulted in countless failed moonshine experiments, pretty intricate popcorn machines and, of course, some terrific Bourbon. But Americans are, as far as other Spirits are concerned... still, pardon our French, rather unenlightened. And no, flavoured Vodka doesn't count!
