Wonderbird Spirits Gin
North Mississippi's first distillery, Wonderbird Spirits is an eight minute drive south of Oxford on Old Taylor Road. Opened in Spring 2019, Wonderbird is the brainchild of friends and co-owners Chand Harlow, Rob Forster, and Thomas Alexander. They ferment Mississippi Delta rice to make the base spirit. This approach, which borrows from traditional sake making, sets a beautifully clean foundation for layering subtly complex flavors and aromas.
Their flagship product is a uniquely sippable gin with a complex layering of ten botanicals. It has a balanced profile with sweet florals, citrus, and spice being the most prominent nuances. Of the ten botanicals, they harvest the pine needles and red clover directly from the distillery grounds. Bottled at 45% abv.
