Distiller's Gin No. 6 - Modern Dry Gin

A Truly Original Gin

Distiller's Gin No. 6 is extremely smooth, with a complex balance of citrus, spice and floral notes. We create No. 6 (90 proof) by infusing our grain-based spirit with hand-selected botanicals from all over the world, along with fresh lemon zest and lavender blossoms.

If you have never tasted this gin, or you think you don't like gin, we strongly recommend trying No. 6 neat (straight) before mixing it into a cocktail or martini. This will allow you to smell and taste the complex nature of this gin. We know you will be amazed at how much you like this gin.

Distiller's Gin No. 6 is fantastic in a traditional martini - we recommend an 8:1 ratio of gin to vermouth, although this gin works well with more vermouth if you like it that way. It also adds character and intriguing flavor to a range of cocktails, such as those you'll find in our cocktail repository.

This gin has received several awards, including:

  • 95 pts Gold Medal/Exceptional Rating - Beverage Testing Institute, 2008
    • Tasting notes: "Clear with a platinum cast. Vibrant aromas of fresh herbs and spices, piney juniper, and twisted lemon peels jump from the glass. A silky entry leads to a fruity-yet-dry medium-full body of bold cracked juniper berry, pink peppercorns, lemon curd, clove, and pastry frosting flavors. Finishes with a long interplay of resiny juniper, sweet citrus and brown spices. A superb gin that virtually bristles with fresh, 3-D flavors. Very impressive!"
  • Best-rated among a variety of artisan gins by Time Out Chicago - "This floral spirit is rife with unusual (and unusually delicious) flavors for a gin, like lavender." Feb 2008
  • "A modern-style gin ... smooth and refined" - New York Times, Nov 2007
  • "Best Gin" by Chicago Magazine over Sapphire, Hendricks and Tanqueray Ten (2007)
