This gin is an amazing blend of old-school and modern styles, harkening back to the gin first invented by the Dutch, called genever. Ransom’s take displays the malty, hoppy aromas of the style with a more intense 14-botanical infusion – including Oregon marionberry and local hops.
Distiller Tad Seestedt is known for his modern nods to classic spirits, always paying respects to history but putting his own spin on the flavors and concepts. Unsurprisingly, this gin won gold at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Highly aromatic and nicely dry, this one’s excellent for sipping neat or enjoying as part of a kopstoot, the Dutch version of “shot and a beer." Savor the botanical flavor combination, rather than shooting this gin in one gulp!
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.
