Aviation American Gin is a distilled spirit first produced in Portland, Oregon by founders Christian Krogstad and Ryan Magarian in 2006. It is classified as an "American dry gin," meaning the flavor profile is less juniper-forward.
The seven botanicals used during distillation for flavoring are: juniper, lavender, sweet and bitter orange peel, cardamom, coriander, Indian sarsaparilla, and anise seed. Aviation American Gin is twice pot distilled and bottled at 84 proof (42% alcohol).

|With its clean, neutral profile, this graceful gin works well with just about anything, from Aviation cocktails (natch) to bone-dry Martinis. On the palate, look for bewitching hints of caraway, juniper, grapefruit and a dry, faintly spicy finish.|
