Defiance in Distillation: A Modern Revolution of American Gin

Daring to defy, traditional small batch distillation collides head-on with cutting-edge lab technology, birthing an American Dry Gin that’s unapologetically clean, crisp, and layered with complexity. This Conniption doesn’t just happen; it's meticulously engineered through a revolutionary two-step process that challenges the very essence of gin-making.

It begins with a base of botanicals—juniper, Indian coriander, angelica root, cardamom— through a vapor infusion in our bespoke German pot still, crafting a foundation that’s both sophisticated and bold.

The journey doesn’t end there. Fresh and floral characters of cucumber and honeysuckle flowers are then individually vacuum distilled at room temperature. This method, far from conventional, ensures each note is captured in its purest form, then seamlessly integrated into the gin base. This daring ensemble is then harmoniously fused, introducing pure distilled and deionized water to the mix.

The result? A gin that doesn’t just speak but shouts with a refreshingly modern flavor profile that’s daring, unyielding, and utterly compelling.

Aroma, Tasting & Finish

Nose is of fresh piney juniper and coriander, spicy cardamom, bright orange, crisp cucumber and sweet honeysuckle. On the palate, juniper is in trio with the coriander and cardamom for the unmistakable gin base with quick softening from fresh, peeled cucumbers, sweet orange peel and finally, all is rounded by the dryness from the angelica root. The gin's lingering finish highlights its approachability, smoothness and balance.

MY FAVORITE GIN!

For the most part, I thought gin tasted like licking a pine tree, and was reluctant to try this. I was invited to a private tour of the distillery - highly recommended when they can do it again - and learned and tasted - and WOW! CONNIPTION is the best. I love American Dry - it's the only gin I drink (except occasionally the Navy Strength). It's available in ABC stores, but I like to order directly - curbside pick-up is terrific. Everyone is informed, professional and friendly. Durham is lucky to have this jewel. I have taken to friends in Europe (that bottle will not break!), because it's excellent and I am proud of Durham. I am loyal to this brand!

A million stars!

Five isn’t nearly enough. American Dry turned me into a gin drinker! Perfect for summer (and winter, and spring..), delicious in every kind cocktail and with every flavor of mixer. Drink some...you won’t regret it. Until maybe the next morning.

My favorite hospitality gift

After first tasting Conniption a couple of years ago, I have hauled it cross-country and overseas (and that bottle is *heavy*) to thank my hosts and show off this outstanding gin. Friends in Scotland (and partners in a distillery there, no less!) still email me to let me know when they are treating themselves to another dram. I'm very proud of this home-town creation.
