A traditional Gin with a Texas twist of pecan that rolls in nicely for an earthy note.

Daniel Barnes founded Treaty Oaks Distilling in 2006 in Austin, Texas. He quickly made an impact in the local bar scene and expanded rapidly, delivering a range of Bourbons, Whiskies, and Waterloo Gin. In 2016 they expanded to a new facility on a 28-acre ranch in the small town of Dripping Springs, Texas — about ten miles west of Austin — with new, larger stills and storage rickhouse. In 2018 they became a part of Mahalo Spirits (Angel’s Envy) and RSVP Ventures’ expanding Spirits portfolio. 

Treaty Oaks distillery likes to tinker and invent. And when they came out with their flagship Waterloo Gin No. 9, they started with a rather straight forward set of botanical infusions. Things like lavender, ginger, coriander, anise, licorice root, lemon, and grapefruit along with the necessary pop of fresh juniper. But it wasn’t enough to source all these ingredients locally. They took it one step further by incorporating pecan — practically the official state nut of Texas. Pecans in Gin… we’ve never seen or tasted anything like it. And it works.

Smartass Corner:
When most of us think of “Waterloo” we think of one of two things: a hit 1980s-era pop song by the ABBA; or the decisive battle where The Duke of Wellington defeated Napoleon in 1815. But turns out Waterloo was the original name of Austin, Texas — which now makes sense.

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.
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.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
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.
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.
