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.

Craft Distillers is home to several unique brands including Russell Henry Gin. Their award-winning traditional London Dry Gin is the brainchild of Coale and Germain-Robin. Distilled through Coale's 130-liter, antique cognac still. The still, which was previously used at the Surrenne Distillery in France and is best known for producing brandies that were favored by Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, has an unusual shape that produces spirits that are notably soft and flavorful. Following its initial distillation, the gin is distilled a second time through a 270-liter Holstein pot still. During this second distillation, the gin is infused with a secret recipe of herbs and botanicals, including juniper, coriander and lemon zest.

Russell Henry London Dry is made using old-fashioned, hands-on distillation techniques, using only the finest ingredients.This Russell Henry expression is a dark twist on their traditional London Dry recipe, essentially their London Dry, aged in oak barrels for a year. Its time in the oak barrels turns the well-balanced light pine flavors into something exquisitely exotic and aromatic. With its sweet, peppery and wood flavors, this distinguished gin is a limited edition expression, with only 100 cases.
