Distillery Tasting Notes:
Gun Club gin contains thirteen botanical varieties and is made from organic, non-GMO wheat, and fresh Seattle water. Triple-distilled in one hundred gallon increments, the base spirit includes generous cuts of heads and tails, providing a rich texture that balances Gun Club at 100 proof.
Our head distiller Erik Chapman grew up in a naval family and wanted to pay homage to the culture of “naval strength” style gin for a fun winter release. Gun Club became so popular that it now ranks among our most successful spirits. To uphold its reputation, we have sourced our dried botanicals from one of the oldest brokers in the world, our citrus from California farms, and our fresh botanicals locally. We have taken great care to produce a high proof gin that easily integrates into spirit-driven cocktails.
BOTANICALS: Clove, Cranberries, Orris Root, Angelica, Grains of Paradise, Turkish Juniper, Coriander, Cassia Bark, Birch Leaves, Orange Peel, Spanish Green Cardamom, Star Anise
AROMAS: Initial astringency leads off to a dry, slightly bitter earthiness. It is balanced by a subtly sweet influence from the cranberries. Delicate note of dried roses at the very tail end.
PALATE: Creamy texture with prominent influences from the Clove, Nutmeg, and Cassia. Muted acidity gives way to a complex balance of juniper and sweet spice. Finishes with the bright but bitter notes of orange peel and cranberries. Delicate thread of cardamom throughout.
