A classic dry Gin that seems to spring organically from the air, plants, and sea of Central California.

Rodney "Rod" Cegleski was a California surfer when he met an Australian Jackaroo named Hamlisch "Hammer" Marshall (a "jackaroo" is a young ranch hand down-under). In 2012 they started experimenting with brewing and distilling at the SLO Brew brewery in San Luis Obispo that Hamlisch had purchased. Distilling grew into a passion, and that passion developed into a business. They officially opened Rod & Hammer Slo Stills in 2019 and set about to build.

Gin just seems like a California thing. Sure, London gets all the good PR, but Gin was invented in the Mediterranean — Italy, Greece, and Croatia where juniper, citrus, and botanicals grow outside every window. And the central coast of California sits at about the same latitude as Southern Italy. That’s why so many fruits, herbs, and spice grow so well there. Rod & Hammer's Slo Stills Slo Dry Gin is made at their distillery on the central coast of California from California juniper, citrus, and other botanicals. Once distilled, it’s cut to proof using water from the Pacific Ocean. Seems like it was meant to be.

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!
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.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
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 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.
