Master distiller Crispin Cain is a seasoned spirits and wine industry veteran. In 1983 he was moonlighting jobs in Pleasanton in a wine cellar, and on a bottling line, while working with Cooper Laboratories plasma kinetics division during the day. After having settled in Mendocino County, in ’89 Crispin Cain worked as assistant distiller to the brandy master Hubert Germain-Robin for seven years before founding Greenway Distillers Inc. with his wife, partner, and vice president, Tamar Kaye in 2005.

In 2008, he started a second company, Tamar Distillery Inc. which produces Low Gap Whiskey, Russell Henry Gin, DSP 162 Vodka, and Fluid Dynamics Barrel Aged Cocktails. Cain has proved to be quite the wizard on the still, known for delivering award-winning spirits, he has been distilling since way back in 1989.

The award-winning Russell Henry Gin lineup is produced at the Tamar distillery using an old-fashioned double-distillation method that has been used in the production of cognac for over half a century. "Folks ask: another gin? Well, Crispin thought there was a lot of room for improvement by using the finest craft methods. So did Paul Pacult: his Spirit Journal's 2013 list of the world's 120 best spirits, included Russell Henry Gin, 'A stellar example, a new landmark in American gin-making.' " Cain infuses these gins with a secret recipe of rare botanicals, real fruit, and real spices including juniper, coriander, cardamom, orris root, and lemon peel.

Russell Henry Dark Gin is a dark twist on their traditional London Dry recipe, essentially their London Dry, aged in new bourbon and new cognac barrels for a year. Its time in the 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.
