St George Terroir Gin
One of the most aromatic and complex gins out there, St. George Terroir Gin has become a local classic, as Bay Area as burritos, sourdough, or losing half your income to rent each month. The botanical lineup pulls inspiration from the California landscape (particularly Mount Tam in Marin). Many of its botanicals are foraged within 100 miles of its Alameda distillery (including Douglas fir, California bay laurel, coastal sage, and juniper foraged from the Diablo Range) for a true sense of California terroir. This giant reads immediately as piney, with a distinctly fir-like aroma that melds with the juniper and herbs. Memorable, woodsy, herbal, a little earthy, and utterly distinct.
