St. George Dry Rye Gin

    THE SPIRIT

    A base of 100% pot-distilled rye makes this a gin for whiskey lovers—and for gin im-purists willing to take a walk on the rye side.

    Think genever, then think again—and brace yourself for a gin with structure, spice, and an impossibly rich mouthfeel.


    THE PROCESS

    We make Dry Rye Gin on the same 1,500-liter copper pot still we use to make our Terroir and Botanivore Gins—but starting with unaged rye as the base spirit gives this gin its warm, malty signature.

    Our Terroir and Botanivore Gin each have intricate botanicals bills designed to create a layered olfactory experience, but for Dry Rye Gin we chose just six botanical ingredients: Juniper berries are the star here (50% more than in either of our other two gins), complemented by black peppercorn, caraway, coriander, grapefruit peel, lime peel—which were all selected to play up the peppery nature of juniper that we love so much.

    THE EXPERIENCE

    Dry Rye Gin is compelling neat, genre-busting in cocktails.

    Warm and spicy, it has a natural affinity with bitters, citrus, stone fruit, and ginger.

    Try it in a Negroni, a Martinez, a Gin Buck—or any classic cocktail that calls for rye whiskey. You’ll never look at an Old Fashioned the same way again.
