Characteristics Aviation American Gin
The idea for Aviation Gin was born at a small party in West Seattle in the summer of 2005, when Ryan Magarin found discovered an infused gin that was different from anything he'd ever tried. He quickly contacted his supplier, House Spirits Distilling. Seeing a common goal, House Spirits distillers joined forces with Ryan to create a gin with a regional feel. In June of 2006, after nearly 30 rounds of trials, Aviation Gin took its final form. It is widely recognized as the first alliance between a distiller and a barman in the United States.
This gin is made from botanicals such as juniper, which defines all gins-- cardamom, which contributes citric, forest and ginger notes-- lavender notes, that contribute floral sweetness-- sarsaparilla, that invigorates the senses-- coriander, which gives it a citric touch, sage and ginger-- anise seeds, giving it a slight liquorice touch-- and finally orange rind, which gives it structure and impetus.
