Over three decades ago, Ansley Coale picked up a hitchhiker along Route 101 just north of San Francisco. The hitchhiker — Hubert Germain-Robin — was of French origin and came from a family that had been producing cognac since 1782. As the two drove northward in Coale's car, Hubert spoke of his family's background in distillation. "Hubert wanted to distill using craft methods handed down for centuries from master to apprentice," recalls Coale, who eventually teamed up with the hitchhiker to found Craft Distillers in 2003.

After purchasing an antique cognac still from an abandoned distillery, Hubert and Coale built a redwood shed in northern California and began distilling spirits. "We bought the still to distill apples, but we also used it for grape spirits. We didn't realize how special it was until Crispin Cain began to distill whiskey on it — the still produces beautifully round, soft, elegant and complex whiskey.”

Cain, who apprenticed with Hubert Germain-Robin for seven years before founding his Greenway Distillery in 2005, is responsible for the production of Low Gap spirits. He’s proved to be quite the wizard on the still, known for delivering award-winning spirits, Cain has been working with whiskey for many many years. His son, Devin Cain, is also a whiskey maven, having apprenticed under his father his blending skills are quite exquisite.

All Low Gap whiskeys are double distilled by hand on the small antique 16HL cognac still at the Germain-Robin distillery in Ukiah California and cut to proof with filtered rain water. The unique antique still yields incredibly “subtle complex and flavorful distillates with superb length” (producer).

Low Gap Straight Bourbon is double distilled from a mash bill of 65% corn, 20% malted barley, and 15% malted rye. Aged for at least two years in new charred oak bourbon barrels, this artisanal, earthy, grain-forward bourbon is bottled at 43.25% ABV.
