A smooth gin with notes of coriander, juniper and almonds with a citrusy finish.
Tucked away in a warehouse near Potrero Hill in San Francisco, Anchor Brewing and Distilling Co. has been distilling alcohol by hand for 140 years. Its history can be traced back to 1849, when German brewer Gottlieb Brekle moved to San Francisco during the Gold Rush. Twenty years later, he bought a beer-and-billiards saloon and transformed it into Anchor Brewery.
It wasn’t until Fritz Maytag, the pioneer of American craft distilling, began distilling rye at Anchor Brewery that Anchor Distilling was born. Three years after Maytag began experimenting with rye, “we realized distilling is fun,” says Bruce Joseph, Anchor’s master distiller, and Junipero Gin was born.
Made by hand in classic dry gin tradition, Junipero is distilled in a copper pot still and made using more than a dozen botanical ingredients, most of which are still a well-kept secret. With a subtle nose, the gin has notes of juniper and citrus that earned it a Double Gold Medal at the 2012 New York World Wine & Spirits Competition and the title “Best Gin in Show.”
Junipero Gin is the ultimate craft spirit, illuminating the cocktail scene with a brilliant touchstone that all modern gins must be measured against. Drink it to know what gin is!
