About Stray Dog Wild Gin
Stray Dog Wild Gin was inspired by a moment, capturing the spontaneous and free spirit of Greece when Johnny Livanos was off-road exploring the unspoiled mountains in northern Greece. Appreciating the present moment and the beauty that was in front of him, Livanos set off on a mission to find the perfect combination of wild-forage botanicals, Mediterranean citrus, and mountain spring water. Hand-crafted in small batches using traditional copper pot stills by Master Distiller Dimitris Melissanidis, Stray Dog Wild Gin brings you the essence of Mediterranean summer in a glass. Supporting animal welfare, Stray Dog Wild Gin also donates a portion of all their sales to organizations for animal protection that provide food, veterinary care, and homes for stray animals.
Made in the Aridea Mountains from wild foraged herbs including sage, rosemary, fennel seed, bay leaf, and mastiha resin as well as fresh orange and lemon, Stray Dog Wild Gin is bottled at a pleasant 87 proof. A bright, herbal, and savory gin, the nose greets you with the scent of pine trees on a hot summer day while the palate delivers bold and sweet citrus notes balanced by savory flavors.
Stray Dog Wild Gin was named Greece Gin of the Year at the 2020 New York International Spirits Competition and was awarded Double Gold at the 2021 San Francisco International Spirits Competition and Gold at the 2020 NY International Spirits Competition.
