A new London-style gin is on the scene from picturesque Sonoma County. Individual botanicals are vapor-distilled to extract the most flavor, then the spirit is blended to offer the perfect balance of flavor and texture. A nice hit of juniper is followed by floral and earthy notes with a hint of spearmint on the finish. Stir this with some ice and a tiny dash of dry vermouth for Martini heaven!
Graton Distilling Company was born out of owner Derek Benham’s love of making stuff cool and his insatiable sense of adventure. Derek got his start selling wine out of the trunk of his '67 Mustang for a small winery and ended up running the business. Then, he struck out on his own and made hay in the wine business before the craft spirits bug bit him. Hard. Under Derek’s careful guidance, Graton (Gray-tin) Distilling Company operates with a fearless commitment to craft. D. George Benham's Sonoma Dry Gin, launched in February 2016, was the first spirit to come off their newly built still.
