Portland, Oregon, USA
Taste: Heavy rye and spice entry with floral lavender and anise top notes, followed by juniper, cardamom, coriander and dried orange peel.
America’s original craft gin. Created by pioneering bartender, Ryan Magarian and Master Distiller, Christian Krogstad, in Portland Oregon, it is the culmination of their quest for a more versatile and mixable gin. Instead of being overpowered by juniper – the flavour of which many perceive to be “harsh” or “medicinal” – Aviation is a balanced blend of seven botanicals: juniper, cardamom, lavender, sarsaparilla, coriander, anise seed, and dried orange peel.
