Aviation belongs to an entirely new category of dry gins. These gins embody a shift away from the tendency to use juniper, towards a more balanced array of botanicals. Aviation explores the rich, floral and savoury notes of lavender, cardamom, and sarsaparilla to capture the lushness, spice, creativity, and freshness of the Pacific Northwest.
A truly American Gin, this. The makers aim to capture the ‘lushness, spice, creativity, and freshness of the Pacific Northwest’ and by golly we think they’ve done it. Alter Ego: Maverick from Top Gun (played by Tom Cruise); when this guy sets his sights on something, he goes into Cruise mode and gets the job done. Can we smell hints of leather? Definitely manly, and All American.
