We're big supporters of the underdogs, those makers and shakers who use creativity to break with tradition. House Spirits broke the mold when they made this showcase gin – it's a must-try for any serious gin drinker. 

Aviation Gin starts with a neutral rye grain liquor (mostly flavorless, odorless, colorless), which gives it a dry base and a blank canvas for adding botanical flavors. Signature juniper notes blend with cardamom, lavender, sarsaparilla, coriander, anise seed and dried sweet orange peel in this rich, floral, savory gin.

It took 7 months for bartender Ryan Magarian and the distillers at House Spirits to craft the perfect balance of botanicals – with 30 trial runs before settling on a first-class recipe that'll have you flying! 

tip of the tongue

This might be a new style gin, but Ryan developed it with classic cocktails in mind. You can't do better than its namesake, the Aviation. Combine 2 oz Aviation gin, 1/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur, and a dash of Liqueur de Violettes in a shaker with lots of ice. Shake until very cold, strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist.

Did you know?

Gin can be infused with a wide variety of botanicals, but it MUST contain juniper berries, which are responsible for that distinct, piney, gin-y flavor. 

Distilled from at least 51% rye; 42% alcohol by volume; comes in a 750ml bottle.
