Comb Jarhead Gin
StillTheOne Distillery // New York, USA
Founder and Master Distiller Ed Tiedge, a former marine, originally created this gin in February 2011 to donate for a Wounded Warrior Project benefit auction. Originally creating 12 bottles of gin for the benefit, Ed decided to restart production of the gin a year later, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project. Using a blended base spirit distilled from honey and New York wheat, this gin is made with several different botanicals, including juniper, coriander, fresh citrus and ginger. It is bottled at 45.2% 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.
