Counter Gin Essential Facts
Counter Gin is the result of careful infusion of seven botanical ingredients into high-purity grain spirits. Using the pure vodka spirit as its base, a proprietary range of botanical ingredients is steeped in an infusion process that lasts precisely 36 hours.
Containing juniper berries from Albania, whole cucumbers from Seattle’s Pike Place Market, tarragon and verbena leaves from Provence, lavender flowers from Sequim, Washington, and orange peel from Seville, Spain, along with Floridian Meyer lemon peel, the complex botanical composition of the Counter Gin infusion makes it an enigmatic original, and ensures that it is unlike any other gin.
We never cook our botanicals in the still with the gin so the essence of each botanical comes out crisp and fresh. The Juniper is ever present, but slightly subdued to allow flavors of the other fine botanicals to shine.
