Aviation American Gin is crafted in Portland, Oregon. It is designed to be softer and smoother than London Dry, with juniper in the back and citrus and floral notes in the front for a balanced medley of botanicals taking flavour to new heights.
Completely unique and truly different style of gin; with rich floral and savoury notes of lavender cardamom and sarsaparilla capturing the lushness spice creativity and freshness exhibited in the Pacific Northwest.
Made with a ‘Botanical Democracy’! Rather than the usual ‘dictatorial’ influence of Juniper each botanical used in Aviation Gin has an influence in the overall flavour of the spirit- giving a beautiful balance and creating a new style which is known as New Western Dry Gin.
Aviation Gin was the pioneer of the New Western Dry style of Gin that is gaining popularity and giving craft distillers the confidence to create gin with a more innovative and interesting flavour profile.
A collaboration between bartender Ryan Magarian and craft distillers House Spirits at their distillery in Portland Oregon. Aviation Gin was produced specifically with cocktails and culinary pairings in mind.
The only choice of gin for an Aviation cocktail a combination of Gin Lemon juice Maraschino liqueur and Violette liqueur which was first published in Hugo R. Ensslin’s 1916 book; Recipes for Mixed Drinks. Also fantastic with Elderflower Tonic and a slice of grapefruit!
