Terroir GinMADE BY ST. GEORGE SPIRITS IN ALAMEDA, CALIFORNIA
Terroir Gin was created as an ode to the monumental trees and misty glens of Northern California. The spicy, woodsy flavors of Douglas fir, bay laurel and sage paint a picture of California’s wild, natural beauty. Nine more botanicals, including coriander roasted in a well-seasoned wok (cool!), round out this evocative gin.
The folks at St. George love gin so much they couldn't make just one. Instead, they crafted three, each with a distinctive blend of botanicals. The trio of Dry Rye, Terroir and Botanivore makes a great gift for gin drinkers – stunning and affordable. St. George can't always keep up with demand so when all three are available, we recommend snatching them up.
tip of the tongue
Try St. George's elegant take on a Lemon Sage Martini: Muddle 3 sage leaves, 3 lemon slices and 3/4 oz ginger syrup (we like P&H Soda Syrup) in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and 2 1/2 oz Terroir gin and shake until very cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a sage leaf and 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.
