McQueen and the Violet Fog Handcrafted Gin
Dig deeper. McQueen did. A single copper pot still in the hills of Jundiaí, Brazil. Twenty-one different botanicals, including six seldom found in gin: basil, rosemary, fennel seed, calamansi, star anise and açai. Other gins are simple. McQueen flipped the script.
With risk comes reward. Pour, swirl, close your eyes, inhale. This contains multitudes: an orchard, a forest, an apothecary. Made by maceration and vapor infusion, each small batch is a labor of love.
PAUCA SED BONA. Literally: Few but Good. Quality is greater than quantity. Each batch is distilled and bottled by hand. The McQueen distillery doesn’t make much, but what they make is damn good.

|This gin is clear, with a distinctly sweet candied lemon peel fragrance. The soft palate finishes with mild violet jazzed up by white pepper and a hint of coriander. Tailor-made for an Aviation.|
