Our Hedge Trimmer gin is carefully hand-crafted with organic, non-GMO wheat, nine organic botanicals, and fresh, filtered Seattle municipal water, some of the very cleanest in the United States. Triple distilled in one hundred gallon increments, we take generous cuts from the head and the tails for a richer texture.
Our distillery offers Hedge Trimmer gin in the London dry style to be enjoyed on its own or beautifully blended in more delicate, juice-based cocktails. While we source all of our medical-grade dried botanicals from one of the oldest brokers in the world, all of our citrus comes from California farms, and our other fresh botanicals are sourced locally. When originally creating this gin, something in the flavor profile seemed to be missing. After a trip to see our friends at Inaba Family Farms in Eastern Washington, we experimented with putting their cannonball watermelon rinds into our botanical combination. The cool, clean influence from the rind gave us exactly the weight and refreshing element we were looking for. Such playful but calculated experimentation has always served us well, producing an end result we, as industry veterans, can feel proud of.

Rich, sweet notes of juniper with lemon zest on the forefront. Subtle pink peppercorn leads away into a delicate musk with a clean, slightly bitter finish.
Soft and dry with vegetal notes on the forefront leading into a tea-like quality with a strong presence of the lemon peel- slightly bitter. Sarsaparilla and watermelon leads the fresh finish of delicate qualities of cola and chamomile.
