Pacific Distillery Bottles Its First Gin

Pacific Distillery, a distillery out of Woodinville, Washington, apparently has finished its first bottling of its new Voyager Single-Batch Distilled Gin. This looks to mark the first round of what looks to be a new Pacific Northwest gin for spirits fans to enjoy.

Pacific Distillery says the drinking strength of this gin is 84 proof. Notes from the bottle indicate this gin is crafted "using only 19th century artsan distiller techniques," by hand in an authentic copper alembic potstill. Botanticals included in this gin are juniper, coriander, licorice root, cardamon, aniseed, lemon, orange, orris, angelica and cassia.

It should hopefully be on store shelves shortly. Pacific Distillery is also working on an absinthe.
