St. George Terroir Mt. Tam Gin 750ml

SKU #1075917

From St. George distillery: Terroir Gin is our ode to the wild beauty of the Golden State. Distiller Lance Winters has a passion for exploring place and memory through distillation, and the aromas of the coastal forests on California's Mount Tam were what inspired him to start making gin in the first place. Terroir Gin has an intense earthy, woodsy nose and flavor derived from Douglas fir, California bay laurel, and California coastal sage complemented by bright, citrusy top notes. This is a unique and proudly Californian gin with a sense of place and poetry.

This is wild and crazy Gin, for folks who like intensity, bold herbal flavors, and a lot of local Bay Area flare in their Gin. Macerated with native pine and herbs from Mt Tam, among many other botanicals, this smells and tastes like a Christmas trees, cut with fresh sage and ground peppercorn. For Negronis.

Having read Melissa and David's reviews of this gin, I was excited but rather dubious in approaching it- how could it be so expressive of the terrior of Northern California? I poured it over ice, added some Fevertree Tonic water and a splash of lime and BAM! Hands down the most incredible experience of drinking in the landscape I love so much! Bay laurel, damp redwood, eucalyptus, wild fennel & dill- this California girl is enraptured!

What an exciting idea. Distill a gin using some botanicals from a local area.The St. George Terrior Mt. Tam is more that a good project, it also tastes good and expands the bonderies of flavors for a gin. There are aromas of juniper and bay laurel that are followed by flavors of juniper, bay laural, sage and fir. A gin to think about and enjoy.

Holy crap! This Gin tastes like every hike or walk I've ever been on in the Bay Area! I've been waiting for this for years hearing Lance and Dave Smith talking about it. This is truly a phenomenal concept and I don't think that anywhere else in the world could replicate such a diverse terroir so elegantly. Redwood, Bay, Fir Trees, Fennel, Wormwood, Brush Sage! You feel like you're wandering through Muir woods, walking down the aisle on Mt Tam above the San Francisco Bay, traipsing through unknown hilly areas of Oakland with your favorite dog friend. It takes you there in every sense, enveloping you with calm and beauty. This is the best aromatherapy gets folks.

This assertively aromatic gin is excellent. An almost overwhelming nose when neat, it plays well in cocktails that call for the gin to make itself known, and is a great foil for green Chartreuse (try it in a Last Word). I find lavender notes, although there is no mention of it on the label.
