A Gin and Herb-Garden Cocktail, Because It’s Spring In Our Hearts

We're not just omnivores and herbivores and carnivores here at Mouth. We're taking a nod from St. George Spirits’ gin and we’re going "Botanivore.”

Thirty years ago, St. George only distilled eau de vie, old-school un-aged brandy made from a variety of fruits. As the company has grown, it has kept founder Jörg Rupf’s passion and dedication to artisanal spirits alive by bringing a spirit of adventure to everything it distills. 

With this gin, prepare for a Mouthful of flowers in bloom. Botanivore is infused with a stunning blend of 19 botanicals: 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 and star anise. Now there’s a bouquet we’d prefer over a dozen roses, any day. 

Botanivore Gin shines in this herb-garden inspired cocktail from St. George:

The Botanical Smash 

Fresh mint
Fresh tarragon
½ teaspoon sugar
2 ounces St. George Spirits Botanivore Gin


1. Muddle fresh mint and tarragon with sugar (superfine if you've got it) in the bottom of a cocktail shaker.
2. Add ice and gin. Shake until very cold and strain into a fresh glass filled with ice.
3. Top with seltzer and garnish with a whole leaf of each herb.
