Leopolds Navy Strength Gin is made by Leopold Bros, a family owned and operated small batch distillery located in Denver, Colorado. Brothers Todd and Scott Leopold came to distilling after successfull careers in the brewing and engineering industries respectively. Together, the Leopold Brothers designed and developed a unique distillery in which environmental sustainability is a daily practice, and the art and science of fermentation and distillation is practiced at the highest possible level.
Handcrafted, hand bottled, hand labeled, and hand numbered, this small batch gin is truly unique. Master Distiller Todd Leopold handcrafts every batch in a small 40-gallon copper still, blending uniquely American botanicals like hand-zested Florida Oranges and California Pummelos with traditional botanicals including juniper, coriander, cardamon and bergamot. These components lend citrus notes to the gin, and help distinguish American gins from their English counterparts. Secondly, all of the botanicals are distilled in fractions, meaning that each component is distilled separately and then blended together to create the finished spirit. Unlike mass-produced gins where the flavours can appear to be muddled together, and stronger spices such as juniper can overpower the balance of the gin, distilling in fractions allows each individual notes to be highlighted. The result is a softer, more refined, and more approachable spirit.
Leopolds Navy Strength Gin is bottled at 57%.
