History

Summer, 2005. A small tiki party in West Seattle. Bartender Ryan Magarian is handed a complex summer botanical infusion by a friend from Portland, Oregon. Finding it unlike anything he had ever tasted, he quickly seeks out its maker, Portland’s House Spirits Distilling. Recognizing a common interest in spirit, cocktail, and food interactions, the distillers at House Spirits share with Ryan their idea for a renegade regional gin style. In June of 2006—after nearly 30 rounds of trials—Aviation Gin takes wing. Many believe this to be the first brand partnership between distiller and bartender in American history.


Description

Aviation belongs to an entirely new category of dry gins. These gins embody a shift away from the usual overabundance of juniper toward a more forward balance of botanicals. Aviation explores the rich, floral and savory notes of lavender, cardamom, and sarsaparilla to capture the lushness, spice, creativity, and freshness of the Pacific Northwest. In this way, we offer the American palate its first real taste of American gin

Why the name “Aviation”?
A simple and unique balance of gin, maraschino liqueur, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. That’s the classic Aviation cocktail invented by barman Hugo Ensslin at New York’s Hotel Wallick almost a century ago. One taste is all it took for Aviation co-founder Ryan Magarian to realize that instead of being limited to martinis and gin & tonics, “gin, in the hands of a passionate and well trained bartender, just might be the world’s most mixable spirit.” So a brand name, and a mission, was born.


Observations
  • Aviation is a welcome departure from the traditional London Dry Style, appealing to a new generation of gin drinkers.
  • A true connector brand – praised and used by leading mixologists approachable to a large segment of the consumer population (including vodka drinkers)
  • Naturally gluten free, and batch distilled using American grain spirit and exotic spices from around the world.
  • The top rated gin by Wine Enthusiast, and one of their Top 50 Spirits in 2012
  • Every batch is pot distilled and then bottled in a stunning new custom package
