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.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Hardshore Original Gin taste like?

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

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.
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!
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
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.
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.
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.
