Aviation American Gin
Once and still the signature drink of the classiest, boldest individuals. Sophisticated yet simple, and created with gin in mind, it celebrates the quality and character of its ingredients. As the world’s highest rated gin (97 points, Wine Enthusiast), Aviation American Gin is the spirit of choice for the world’s best Martinis.
Aviation Gin is America’s original craft gin. Created by pioneering bartender, Ryan Magarian and master distiller, Christian Krogstad and now owned by Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds. Aviation Gin is made in Portland Oregon and it is the culmination of their quest for a more versatile and mixable gin.
Instead of being overpowered by juniper – the flavour of which many perceive to be harsh or medicinal. Aviation is a balanced blend of seven botanicals: juniper, cardamom, lavender, sarsaparilla, coriander, anise seed, and dried orange peel.
Aviation’s botanicals are infused by maceration – steeping them until the flavours have bonded – then redistilled.
Many other gins are infused by vapor distillation– passing heated alcoholic vapors through a basket of botanicals.
