Rock Town // Arkansas, USA
Founded by Phil Brandon in 2010, Rock Town Distillery is the first legal distillery to open in Arkansas since the end of Prohibition. Located in Little Rock, Rock Town takes pride in making locally-produced craft spirits - the distillery makes its spirits with corn, wheat and rye grown within 125 miles (201 km) of Little Rock. Their Brandon's Gin is made with seven botanicals: juniper, coriander, angelica, cinnamon, lemon and orange peel, and anise. These botanicals are vapor infused with the spirit during distillation, with the final gin product bottled at 46% ABV.
Distilled GinThis style of gin takes a neutral spirit and then adds juniper berries and other natural flavorings before it is re-distilled. After distillation, additional flavors (artificial or natural) and sweeteners may be added.
