A literal black Gin. And that's not even the best part!

The story of Scapegrace Distillery starts with two guys from New Zealand. Their paths crossed when one of them married the others sister. The two brothers-in-law spent a year talking about how they both always wanted to create their own Gin. Then, together with a part time musician, they got into a lot of debt. And then, they started making their own Gin.

They took 12 natural botanicals, water that comes down from New Zealand’s Southern Alps, and put it all in a Whisky still from the 19th century that they found in an abandoned shed. The Scapegrace Gin was born. It immediately won Gold in London and San Francisco.

Scapegrace Black Gin brings together flavors of aronia berry, saffron, pineapple, butterfly pea, and sweet potato. This unique set of botanicals is blended at precise temperatures to create the distinct taste of this Black Gin. Mind you, the color is actually black. It makes your cocktails look really badass but we still adore this special Gin for its specific harmony of flavors.

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.
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.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
