Crispin Cain, who trained with Hubert Germain- Robin and now has some 30 years experience with craft distillation, is perhaps the most gifted distiller now active. His first bottling of Russell Henry gin was named 7th best spirit on the planet by Paul Pacult’s SPIRIT JOURNAL, and his Rose Liqueur was ROBB REPORTS’ Best of the Best.

First release was Malt Advocate’s Artisan Whiskey of the Year

Five factors crucial to Low Gap’s extraordinary quality:

  1. Crispin ferments his own mash from scratch.
  2. He ferments with special enzymes
  3. He ferments to completely dry, which can take up to four months
  4. He double-distills on a small antique cognac still
  5. He cleans the still after each distillation

It’s simple: Low Gap is just better whiskey

LOW GAP 3yr Bourbon: Double gold medals at 50 Best Whiskies competition against far older bourbons. Crispin Cain started to distill whiskey for sale in 2010, but he waited for three years before making a bourbon because he wanted to feel completely confident in the process. The mash bill is corn, barley, and rye; aged in air-dried Minnesota oak. A number of devotees have told us this is the best bourbon they have experienced.  Wonderfully approachable, smooth, soft, and rich.  
750 ml / 42% ABV
