St. George Terroir
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!).
In stock, worldwide delivery available.
Can be dispatched within 24 hours.
So fragrant, you can smell the pine....
Douglas fir taste overpowers everything else
I picked up a bottle of this while visiting San Francisco and Alameda, turns out it's a great gin. I served it with loads of ice, a good tonic and grapefruit peel. The piney/fir taste makes for a really different gin but different in a good way, balanced out well by the grapefruit peel.
I'd say it's now one of my favourites.

I did not like this at all. I tried to but I found the fir taste way too strong and weirdly tangy. I tried to fix the taste my creating a cocktail with blueberries and lemon in it but all I could taste was the fir.

Had the luck to visit the distillery in Alameda, CA over Chistmas. Andie gave us a tour of their beautiful distillery. This gin is one of the best I've had to date. It is so fragrant, and you can almost smell a forest in every sip. Wonderful with a good, not too sweet tonic.
