Xoriguer Gin de Mahon, 82 proof

This gin hails from the Spanish island of Menorca, where it's made to very specific, archaic practices. The wood-fired alembic stills for distillation range in age from 70 to 270 years old. Meanwhile, the juniper that gives the gin its signature profile is aged for 1 to 4 years in open crates at the distillery, ensuring lengthy contact with salty air. These details combine to provide a gin with a standout, distinctive character. It pops with citrus, prickles with pepper, and serves a subtle salty spray on the palate

Four Pillars Olive Leaf Gin, 87.6 proof

Olive Leaf Gin is uniquely made using three types of cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil and olive leaf tea from Cobram Estate, known for its world-class olives. This innovative use of olives in multiple forms adds a rich textural complexity that is rare in gin.

Hendrick’s Grand Cabaret, 86.8 proof

It seems that stone fruit flavors, rose scents and gin were a magical combination in the most opulent of establishments in Paris at the turn of the 20th Century, and eaux de vies, peach schnapps, cherry liqueurs and the like were the ‘in thing’ for those who had the means to celebrate in spectacular style. Master Distiller, alchemist and liquid poet Lesley Gracie has deftly combined these flavors into a ravishingly fruity spirit, where pirouettes of decadent stone fruit share the stage with sweet herbs and make for an elegant sensory feast that is deliciously indulgent and yet as light as silk.

Baltimore Spirit Company Shot Tower Gin, 100 proof

Shot Tower Gin is both brand new and familiar. Jasmine flower and big green tea notes shine through the citrus and juniper, creating a gin that expresses wonderfully in cocktails. Bottled at 100 proof, you don’t need to worry about it getting lost in the mix.
