If you're like us, the beautiful labels on these bottles are what first caught your eye. But these aren't just one of those "beauty on the outside" products. The spirits inside the bottles are just as thoughtfully and creatively crafted.

Koval's dry gin is made with a unique blend of woodland spices and has an herbal, earthy quality with notes of juniper and wildflowers. The taste? A complex mix of citrus and floral traces followed by pepperiness. This is a clean, dry, yet vibrant gin that's crisp enough to enjoy straight and, of course, excellent in both classic and contemporary cocktails.

The distillery's Barreled Gin follows the same recipe with the additional flavors of spiced oak that come from aging in whiskey barrels for six months.

The combination makes a great gift for gin connoisseurs on the lookout for something outside the realm of the ordinary. Gin up, folks!


Koval has an awesome recipe for a gimlet... a basil gimlet! Muddle 4-5 basil leaves, 2 lime wedges, and 1/2 oz simple syrup in a shakerAdd 1½ oz Koval Dry Gin and ice, then shake and strain into a chilled glass. Top with soda water and garnish with lime wedge. When it comes to the barreled gin, try taking a whiskey-lover's approach and just sip it with an ice cube.

    47% alcohol by volume. One gift set includes two 200 ml bottles.
