A bright and fresh new American Gin born in the Wind Country of California.

The Ginny behind Ginny’s Gin is Ginny Sweeney Graham-Smith. Ginny traveled the world before settling down and marrying her Wine-making husband in Napa Valley. But soon she got the itch to do something more, and set out with some friends — Rob, Amy, and Jeff — to craft a Gin influenced by the California Wine Country. They currently use local Santa Rosa distiller Hecka Goods in nearby Sonoma Valley for production and are making a splash in the craft Spirits marketplace. Cheers to them!

Ginny’s Gin has a base of both grape and local grains — reflecting the rich agricultural community of the region. They use a complex botanical mix that quite naturally begins with hand-milled juniper macerated i the grape Eau de Vie. The rest of the mix includes coriander, lemon peel, lemongrass, sagebrush, angelica root, orris root, licorice root, cubeb berries, and grains of paradise which are vapor infused. And this lovely little Gin is bottled at a near perfect 45% ABV — meaning that it shines in all the classic Gin cocktails you love. And they bottle it cleverly in Wine bottles, which makes it all the more fun.

Smartass Corner:
Cubeb is sometimes called "tailed pepper" or "Java pepper." It’s native to Indonesia and looks like a black peppercorn with a stem. It’s been used medicinally, as a flavoring, and in essential oils for millennia. The flavor is described as a cross between allspice and black pepper.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Ginny's Gin taste like?

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

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.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
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.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
