Aviation American Gin
Every bottle of Aviation Gin is handcrafted in small 100-case batches by a small, dedicated team of master distillers in Portland, Oregon.
Like the world's finest gins, Aviation is distilled using a proprietary maceration process that produces a pure medley of botanical flavor.
It all starts with our precise blend of botanicals, sourced from around the world – cardamom, coriander, French lavender, anise seed, sarsaparilla, juniper, and two kinds of orange peel. The botanicals are placed in nylon sacks and suspended in a pure, neutral grain spirit for 18 hours in macerating tanks. The macerate is then pumped into a stainless steel still along with pure water. Steam jackets heat the macerate, the vapors go into a shotgun condenser, come into contact with the cold water, and the distillate forms. n a meticulously monitored process, the first fluid leaving the still, the "heads," is removed. Collecting the "heart of the spirit" throughout the run, the distillers then determine the end of the cycle and make the final cut, "the tails." This process takes approximately 7 hours and at this point, the "heart cut" is 142 proof. The "heart cut" is transferred to a blending tank where pure water is added, bringing the gin to the desired 84 proof. It then goes into a bottling tank with a 6-sprout gravity filler and pumped into bottles. Labels, caps, and cap strips are all applied by hand. A craft production from beginning to end, Aviation is then ready to pack and ship.
Chip's was extremely fast on delivery and had a low price for my wife's favorite gin.
Received what we ordered as scheduled well packaged and are satisfied. The aviation gin is superb!
Everything was very well packaged and shipped. Only problem was we should have ordered more.
This is great medium range gin and worth the price
The Aviation Gin is great, but one of the bottles was not sealed properly and leaked in the box. Have read this from another review, as well, so you need to check the bottles before shipping. Would have been a 5 star otherwise.
