A new American Gin with a crisp palate and strong pine notes.
 
Hardshore Distilling Company was founded in Maine by Jordan Milne. While working in the finance industry in New York, he tinkered with a small column still in his apartment making Moonshine Whiskies. But his father-in-law was obsessed with Gin and peaked his interest. Then, when Hurricane Sandy struck the New York area, Jordan and his wife went to stay in Maine with friends and fell in love with the place. Long story short, it wasn’t long before he set up shop, purchased a 1200 liter Holstein still, and then developed his first product — Hardshore Gin.
 
Hardshore Original Gin is a classic Dry Gin. The base grain is local wheat. Uniquely, he cuts the open-top fermentation process just a bit short to leave a little of the natural sugars in the Spirit. This reduced alcohol yield, but it also lets the natural botanicals infuse better and bloom — opening more slowly on the palate. There are only five botanicals — Tuscan juniper, mint, orris root, coriander, and rosemary. The final product is cut to 46% ABV with water from the local Lake Sebago.

Hardshore gets its name from the rugged, rocky shoreline of Maine.

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.

Zachary,
Our favorite gin. Good flavor.
 
Erick
Erick,
Remarkably good and a remarkable testament to the principle of “less is more.” Fascinating to compare this side by side with Monkey 47, another gin that I adore. Separated by FORTY-TWO botanicals, I couldn’t imagine two more different and equally successful gin recipes. Excels in a martini with Martini Riserva Speciale Ambrato.

Christopher,
One of my favorite gins. The Maine-grown botanicals they use set this gun apart. If you’re in Portland, ME be sure to stop by the distillery. Their cocktails are fantastic.

Love how it doesn’t taste like pine needles. Super smooth.

John,
Notes of rosemary and anise more than juniper forward. Great in a negroni with a grapefruit peel.
