HOW COULD WE MAKE A GIN THAT SHINES IN COMPLEX DRINKS? By reviving a lost, time-intensive technique that retains maximum flavor (and color). Meet the ancestor of all modern gins: CITY Amber Gin is one of the world’s only gins to use slow, Renaissance-era maceration techniques for flavor & complexity that cannot be retained in distilled gins. Add depth to market-fresh cocktails or new dimensions to gin classics, like a Negroni or Gin Fizz.

REVIEW “Though golden orange in the glass, this is not a barrel-aged gin; rather, it’s infused with botanicals (as most gins are), but hasn’t had the color distilled out. It’s sweet and soft on the palette, and the different constituents sing out clearly; juniper, anise and clove are backed by a wave of honey and allspice, plus a surprising dark-fruit note in the back of the palate and a light floral on the exit.” Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast
