Not your grandfather’s Gin. A subtle choice.

Distillery No. 209 is located at Pier 50 in San Francisco, California. The only distillery in the World built over water, they say. Originally housed in a barn in Napa Valley, the distillery has enjoyed a San Francisco rebirth, thanks to food and wine enthusiast Leslie Rudd of Dean & DeLuca and Rudd Oakville Estate Winery.

Under the supervision of distiller Arne Hillesland, No. 209 small-batch Gin is distilled five times from red corn grain spirit in a custom-built alembic copper still and blended with botanicals from around the World. The plan is to make a Gin that reflects the heritage of small batch hand-crafted distilling but is a unique and modern 21st century spirit.

Appearance / Color
Crystal clear and oily.

Smell / Nose / Aroma
Quite forward on citrus, as juniper takes a back seat with nicely aromatic mix of botanicals - orris root, licorice, coriander and angelica.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Bittersweet entry, aromatic blend of (mostly) lemon, bergamot and orange oil, with bittersweet citrus peel, spice, with juniper, cassia, cardamom, licorice, coriander and a lovely grainy taste.

Finish
Nice clean and refreshing evergreen character, but not clearly juniper. Decidedly herbal.

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.
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!
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.
The distillery houses a 25 feet tall alembic copper pot still, based on the distinct shape of the Glenmorangie Whisky stills with a swan’s neck column.
Distillery No. 209 is located at Pier 50 in San Francisco, and is the only distillery in the world to be built over water.
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.
