This Western-style gin from Portland, Oregon, so impressed Wine Enthusiast magazine, they recently voted it ‘Top Gin’. With delicious lavender and citrus notes in a creamy-rye spirit base, this Aviation Gin is equally enjoyable on its own or in a lip-smacking cocktail.
Aviation American Gin presents a playful flavor profile that is refreshingly crisp but clean on the palate. It is delightful in a classic tonic, a smooth and fresh rye gin that does not overpower, remaining neutral in old-school combinations.
Bright juniper notes interplay with crisp citrus for a refreshing liquor without a harsh burn. Aviation American Gin offers a highly fragrant bouquet with lavender at the forefront, but the flavors blend cleanly and incorporate well into this crisp rye gin.
Caraway and grapefruit are noticed as more subtle, but add complexity and depth, especially when enjoyed straight or on the rocks.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine awarded Aviation American Gin a 97-point rating in 2012, the highest rating the magazine has given to any gin.
