St. George Terroir Bottling Note

Many of us here at MoM Towers have wanted to visit California, but for one reason or another, we've not hopped on a plane just yet (I think it's mostly for fear of grizzly bears and not being able to get a proper cup of tea).

However, the wonderful folks at St. George Spirits have provided us the next best thing, the Terroir Gin! Now in a 70cl bottle, its botanical selection of Douglas Fir, Coastal sage and Californian bay laurel gives it a magical nose that makes you really feel like you're stood in a Californian forest (with no chance of a grizzly sneaking up on you as an added bonus!).

Consider this similar product...

(70cl, 57%)

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: You're out in nature. In a forest to be precise, surrounded by Douglas firs and woodsy herbal aromas.

Palate: Fresh, with more fir, pine and bay laurel alongside the coastal sage. Well-structured and moreish.

Finish: Evocative and very long with citrus and lingering herbaceous notes.

Overall: A huge favourite of ours, it's just so evocative. Superb stuff.

St. George Terroir Gin Reviews

A very crisp, clean taste. Just how I like my G&T

First time I've tried. Absolutely delicious. Some heavy juniper flavours but balanced with other roots/berries.
Did I detect some citrus notes too???
When I first saw the bottle I assumed either Canadian or Alaskan gin. (Because of the bear) good to try an amazing Californian gin!!

Reasonable price point.. it is not overdone..

It reminds me of Mammoth .. the soil is volcanic
a red loam color it has this earthy tone. Manzanita bush produces a white flower in the spring.. that gives it’s the citrus’s taste Jeffery and Douglas fir with tones of butterscotch and vanilla ..lodgepole pine, sage and is magnificent bled
Transporting me there with every sip.

Terroir is intense. In a martini made 3:1 with Dolin it is amazingly good but it won't leave you wanting to get hammered because it is just so satisfying. In a gin and tonic made with Fever Tree light it is, again, perfection. I look forward to it in a Rittenhouse and Cocchin negroni.

My new favorite

I've tried a number of great gins but I think this is my new favorite. It is herbal-forward, earthy and piney, characteristics that are not lost when made into a gin and tonic. Where others get diluted, this one keeps its distinctive and outdoorsy taste. If you're like me and love everything woodsy, you'll love this one.

Favourite Gin

Like Marmite. You love or hate it.
Despite always thinking of Gin as a British drink this has been my favourite Gin for a number of years. California has created a very clever and complex spirit. I drink it with tonic and a bay leaf.

Like a mouthful of earth

Yug! Tastes like dirt. Not really a Gin in the classic sense. As your review points out, wood dominates the flavor profile.

Absolutely the taste of the CA coast

Love Terroir Gin as a Californian. Yes indeed, it evokes a cool spring day in the Mendocino forest near the coast. Exactly. And I love it. And no need to worry about Grizzlies. Have not set foot in CA for over 100 years. Lots of friendly Black Bears on my property in the fall, but one must travel to Montana and Wyoming to find a Grizz. Wonderful gin that goes too fast. Easily available here in the Golden State

Perfect, but not for purists

I think this is my favorite gin of all time. I'm California born and bred, and this stuff has nailed the character of our conifer forests so completely that after every sip, I can close my eyes and feel like I'm on a favorite mountain hike the day after a good rain. Even a hint of the the earthy scent of wet loam and bark comes through the abundance of pine needles, smattering of black sage, and savory whiff of bay. This stuff transports me, and if you've ever come to spend time in the California wilderness, it will bring you back here, too.

Terroir is different. It is its own thing. It has a distinct sense of place, and it isn't interchangeable with every day gin. To me, that's what makes it perfect. In fact I think it exemplifies the best thing about gin -- apart from juniper, there are no real rules. Gin CAN be about a particular place in such an explicit way, even more so than wine can. St. George does it with California coastal redwood, Inverroche does it with the South African Fynbos. Regular gin is fine, but for me this is gin's true purpose exemplified.

Not for me

Tastes like pine sawdust...not for me.

2 stars for "interesting"

Tastes like mouthwash. Nasty shit. Wouldn't buy it. It was a gift. Apparently the gifter didn't taste it either. If this is supposed to taste like the Forest, a bear shit in the woods.
