A bright and fresh citrus zing livens a crafted Gin in the London Dry style.

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.

When Crispin decided to create Russell Henry London Dry Gin, a lot of folks asked, "Another Gin?" But Crispin thought that there was room to explore new flavor complexities. And we’re rather glad he did. This lovely Gin done in the London Dry style includes the botanicals you might expect, such as juniper, coriander, cardamom, orris root, and lemon zest. But it also has ginger root and Malaysian (key) lime. The full recipe is a guarded secret (we tasted a fruity/pepper of some kind), but the taste is plain for all to experience and a rather rare 45% ABV. The piney juniper is there, but does not overwhelm — acting as a forest canvas to array the other complex flavors across your palate.

Corner
Few Gin Distillers Make Their Own Alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral spirit: A commodity that in distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.

Ratings & Reviews
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
This was a pleasant but not outstanding gin for my personal palate. I prefer gin to be GIN, meaning forward with the juniper. This one is pretty light on the juniper for my taste. I also am not especially fond of cucumber notes, and I tasted that more than I preferred. Mind you I ordered two bottles and finished them both ~ but I will buy something else next time first.

Anastasia,
Great, light, citrus forward gin that's perfect sipped on its own or used in a martini or gimlet.
