This style of gin is typically more floral in nature or highlighting an ingredient other than juniper. Our American/Contemporary Gin has won a silver medal from the American Craft Spirits Association, Seattle International Spirits competition the American Distilling Institute. It contains four additional ingredients from those mentioned above; cardamom, lime zest, orange peel and lavender. The nose is somewhat richer in juniper, but lends itself to be more flavorful than the Navy Gin. This style of gin works well with tonic, ginger ale and in some cases ginger beer.
