Key Information

Registered Distillery No. 209 was established in St. Helena, California in 1882. It was the 209th Distillery permitted in the United States, hence their name.

It was recreated in 2005 with a new product on the piers of San Francisco.

The all natural botanicals are sourced from around the world by our English purveyor, Joseph Flack & Company, coincidentally also established in 1882. They go to significant lengths selecting botanicals that reflect their quest for quality to achieve the smoothness and unique taste of this beautifully crafted product - a new 'standard' in gin.

The notes of juniper (Tuscany), the warmth of coriander (Romania), the lemony undertones of cardamom (Guatemala), the cinnamon aromas of cassia (Indonesia), and bergamot orange (Calabria) provide the delightful citrus elements within the structure of this complex gin. These are but a few of the natural botanicals that go into crafting No. 209 Gin. 209's natural botanicals sourced from four continents creating the best gin in the world. The botanicals maturate in the alambic pot-still overnight. The slow soaking eases the natural flavourings from the botanicals so the gin is bright - never bitter.

Each distillation takes 11 hours, not including the maturation process.

No. 209 Gin is five times distilled with exacting care given to separating the heads and tails from the heart of the distillation. Only the heart isused.

Each batch is handcrafted using the 'Single Shot' method, which is quite different from the continuously distilled gins on the market today. Indeed a 'New Standard' in gin, the finest gin in the world. No. 209 Gin.

The Botanicals: Angelica: Abundant in Iceland, Angelica's flavour is delicate and sweet; reminiscent of celery. Bergamot: Indigenous and grown mainly in Italy, Bergamot peel is used for its ability to combine with an array of scents to form a bouquet of aromas which complement each other. Cassia: Cassia is an evergreen tree and a close relative to cinnamon. It is used primarily for its bark and the buds are used as a spice. Cassia can be found growing wild in Indonesia. Juniper Berries: The flavour profile of juniper berries is described as 'green-fresh' with citrus notes. They select their berries from the finest junipers in Italy. Coriander: Coriander has a mild, distinctive taste similar to a blend of lemon and sage. 209 select their Coriander from Romania.

Firstly, do not be put off by the fact this is from the US, its a wonderful bright crisp gin that holds it own with the very best us Brits have to offer. Its nice and citrusy and is in my top 3 gins along with Sacred and Fifty Pounds.
