Inspired by the DEATH'S DOOR passageway between WASHINGTON ISLAND and the Door County peninsula, Death's Door Spirits is committed to working with LOCAL FARMERS to create truly exceptional spirits.
Death's Door Gin has a surprisingly simple botanical mix of juniper berries, coriander and fennel. Using a mix of juniper berries that includes the wild juniper of Washington Island (Juniperus virginiana) with coriander and fennel seeds, Death's Door Spirits is able to showcase how complementary and complex simple expressions can be. Like the Vodka, Death's Door Gin employs a flavorful base that includes hard red winter wheat, corn and malted barley. Death's Door Gin has a full London Dry flavor without all of the bitterness because of the vapor extraction process and the base spirit (Death’s Door vodka). In fact, you can taste all three botanicals: loaded juniper berries up front; spicy, citrusy notes from the coriander seeds in the mid-palate; and a soft, cooling finish provided by the fennel seeds. Death's Door Gin is big enough to stand up to classic or vintage cocktail treatment, but soft enough to be enjoyed on the rocks or as a dry martini. It truly is the "utility" gin of our time.
