In 1981, Ansley Coale picked up a hitchhiker along Highway 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, which is located in northern California. After purchasing an antique still from an abandoned cognac distillery, Hubert and Coale built a redwood shed and began experimenting with different types of spirits. Russell Henry Malaysian Lime Gin is made using Russell Henry London Dry Gin. After distillation, the gin is steeped in the leaves and fruit of the limau purut, a type of lime native to Malaysia. The limau purut, which is often used in Malaysian and Indonesian cuisine, has a rough, bumpy skin and a robust, slightly tangy flavor. As a result, Russell Henry Malaysian Lime Gin has bold notes of citrus that finish with a soft touch of zesty lemon and lime. Russell Henry is made using old-fashioned, hands-on distillation techniques, using the finest ingredients, bottled at an unusual 83.2 proof that achieves the ideal balance of strength and flavor. Each bottle of Russell Henry Gin is handmade by Crispin Cain's expert team at Craft Distillers. Russell Henry Malaysian Lime Gin, which was called "seductively citrusy," earned four stars by F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal in 2013. Pick up your Russell Henry Gin today!
