St. George Botanivore Gin

    THE SPIRIT

    Botanivore, our “botanical eater,” is comprised of 19 different botanicals working in concert. Think of a meadow in bloom—herbaceous, fresh, and elegant.

    What’s in it? Count with us… angelica root, bay laurel, bergamot peel, black peppercorn, caraway, cardamom, cilantro, cinnamon, citra hops, coriander, dill seed, fennel seed, ginger, juniper berries, lemon peel, lime peel, orris root, Seville orange peel, star anise!

    THE PROCESS

    We layer juniper berries, bay laurel, and fresh cilantro in our botanicals basket. The other 16 ingredients are steeped overnight in the pot of our 1,500-liter copper pot still. The next morning, we apply gentle steam heat to coax out all of the beautiful flavors and aromas. By the end of the day, we have 800 bottles worth of Botanivore.

    THE EXPERIENCE

    This elegant, perfectly balanced, and deeply layered gin is all you need for a damn fine martini.

    Also? We’re pretty convinced it makes the best Gin and Tonic ever.

    In fact, after extensive research, we’ve concluded that Botanivore is the friendliest gin we’ve ever encountered. Fresh and lightly herbaceous, with bright citrus, subtle floral notes, earth, and spice, it plays well in cocktails of any stripe—so get creative and introduce it to the rest of your liquor cabinet! You can’t go wrong.
