About Greenhook Ginsmiths American Dry Gin
Marrying modern technique with traditional flavor profiles, Greenhook Ginsmiths American Dry Gin is a bold and crisp gin born in the heart of Brooklyn.
Working behind a custom-made 300 liter copper alembic still outfitted with a specially designed mercury vacuum, master distiller Steven DeAngelo uses an innovative technique to reduce atmospheric pressure in his still during the distillation process. As a result, DeAngelo is able to distill his gin at lower temperatures than traditional ginsmiths, resulting in a cleaner, more pristine spirit that captures the raw integrity of the botanicals.
Those botanicals — juniper berries from Tuscany, organic chamomile, organic elderflower, blue ginger, orris root and Ceylon cinnamon — give the gin a citrusy flavor, and earned it the Double Gold Medal at The Fifty Best
Tasting Competition in 2013.
Greenhook Gin is strong — 94 proof — but its flavors are distinct and sharp. It's also surprisingly well-balanced, its component flavors complementing one another and creating a whole that's greater than the sum of its botanical parts.

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.
