Exotic Ginger Gin is here!
Crispin Cain has been working in Wine and Spirits in Northern California since 1983, including serving as assistant distiller to Brandy-master Hebert Germain-Robin. He founded Greenway Distillers in 2005 and Tamar Distillery/Mendocino Spirits in 2008. From their small craft shop in Redwood Valley they produce several bands of premium Spirits, including Low Gap Whiskey, Russell Henry Gins, Fluid Dynamics Cocktails, and DSP 162 Vodkas along with Absinth and Liqueurs.
Russell Henry Hawaiian Ginger Gin is a thing of beauty. It is produced in the same way as the London Dry Gin in the range, which is made from distilled neutral grain Spirit and then infused with botanicals. Hawaiian ginger grown by Phil and Linda Green — organic farmers located on the north shore of Kauai — is added to the classic list of ingredients (including juniper, coriander and citrus). The result? A real mix of the traditional and the exotic. Some flavored Gins can lose their juniper identity, but not this one. The ginger is prominent on the nose and the palate, but it’s still very much a Gin.
