Another gin? It’s because there was a lot of room for improvement. Ansley Coale of Craft Distillers and Crispin Cain of Tamar distillery, between them, had some 50 years thinking about and distilling craft-method spirits. Crispin thought, experimented, tasted. One of the things they wanted to do was create a true-ingredient gin: genuine flavors instead of additives, so that we could make authentic Lime and Ginger gins.

For the Russell Henry London Dry, Crispin uses both a wheat- and a corn-based grain-neutral spirit, which is redistilled with the aromatics & botanicals on the Germain-Robin 16HL antique cognac still.

Crispin gets his ginger from an organic family farm on the island of Kauai (see photo), his Malaysian lime leaves direct from an family exotic fruit orchard in California. Cocktails are unreal.

Russell Henry London Dry was ranked no.11 in Paul Pacult’s list of the world’s 100 best spirits. The next gin was no. 55 – SPIRIT JOURNAL

Russell Henry Gin
RUSSELL HENRY London Dry Gin: The botanicals include juniper, coriander, orris root, and lemon peel. This is extraordinarily appealing gin, smooth, subtle, and rich. One reviewer called it a landmark in gin-making. He’s right.

RUSSELL HENRY Malaysian Lime Gin: Limes are notoriously hard to distill. The juice is highly acidic and wants to oxidize after bottling. A deeper and richer flavor can be derived from macerating the leaves – the ones used in Thai cuisine. Crispin gets them hand-picked from the Kirkpatrick orchard in Exeter, CA. The nose is like sticking your thumbnail into a fresh lime. Want your best G & T?.

RUSSELL HENRY Hawai’ian Ginger Gin: The aroma and taste are those of fresh ginger, even better because this varietal - grown organically on tropical Kauai – has a gorgeous subtle intensity. If you like ginger, you can sip this unchilled like a good brandy. Chairman’s Trophy at the 2020 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

RUSSELL HENRY Dark Gin: Like nothing you have ever tasted. The botanicals and aromatics, given more than a year to play against each other inside excellent bourbon and Limousin oak cognac barrels, evolve into something sublime. When someone asks in the store what we recommend, this is always one.
