In February 2011 our founder and Master Distiller, Ed Tiedge, received a call from the Wounded Warrior Project asking if he could donate a few bottles of spirits for an auction at an upcoming benefit. He immediately said yes, but when he got off the phone he wanted to do better than just drop off a few bottles. Ed formulated a new gin; made in a single batch of 12 bottles, with handmade labels and a custom wood case. As a nod to his service in the United States Marines, he called it Jarhead Gin. A year went by and he decided the gin was too good to leave on the shelf and made a second batch.
Local Ingredients, Unique Recipe. Handcrafted in Small Batches.
Distilled with a blend of organic New York State wheat and honey, Jarhead Gin is bright and lively with juniper, coriander, fresh citrus, ginger and a couple of secret botanicals. Each bottle is hand numbered with the batch and bottle number. Jarhead Gin is smooth and refreshing and is terrific with tonic or your favorite cocktail.
