About Bluecoat American Dry Gin
Bluecoat American Dry Gin is produced by Philadelphia Distilling in the birthplace of America, Philadelphia, PA. Philadelphia Distilling was the first craft distillery built in the state of Pennsylvania since Prohibition.
Inspired by those who came before, Bluecoat Gin was named in honor of the soldiers that fought for America’s Independence in the Revolutionary War. Bluecoat celebrates the independent spirit of these free-thinking revolutionaries.
The signature blue bottle of Bluecoat American Dry Gin personifies the historic blue jacket and gold buttons of the Bluecoat Revolutionary Soldiers, connecting the rich history of 1776 to the present day. Bluecoat, as the original American Dry gin, is in a class by itself.
All gins begin with juniper berries, and Bluecoat American Dry Gin is no exception. However, Bluecoat utilizes exclusively organic Mediterranean juniper berries, due to their softer flavor and spicy, earthy notes, as opposed to the pungent, pine tree-flavored juniper berries found within the London Dry style.
Complimenting the soft juniper notes, a premium blend of organic American sweet citrus peel, which is not typically found in most gins, gives Bluecoat American Dry Gin its classic citrusy finish, and a flavor profile fit for the American drinker’s palate.
Bluecoat American Dry Gin is produced in small batches, in the heart of Philadelphia, to ensure quality and consistency in every bottle. Distilled in a custom, hand-hammered copper pot still. Only the smoothest, most flavorful cuts are bottled to a 94 proof spirit.
On the nose, you’ll find notes of pine tree, orange and citrus aromas, while citrus, cardamom, juniper and orange with subtle earthy complexity linger on the palate.

According to Winston Churchill, "The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen's lives and minds than all the doctors in the Empire," referring to the British officers using it to treat malaria in India.
Initially made for medicinal purposes, gin gets most of its flavor from the juniper berries added after the distillation process. It sure has come a long way from the Middle Ages, with the introduction of new botanicals, fruits, and spices, bringing it closer to people of all flavor varieties.
