The botanicals used are juniper, coriander, cardamon, angelica root, orange peel, lemon peel and black pepper, which are all added via vapor infusion. This new, "Americanized" gin is bottled at 45% ABV.

In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.
