St. George Terroir Gin

(70cl, 45%)

St. George Terroir Gin

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship St. George Terroir Gin to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

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!).

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

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.

Martini Naked

A world apart. The best naked Martini I ever had. Superb.

Love it

Distinct flavouring (sage) may not be to everyone's taste but this is fresh, strong and fabulous! One of my favourite gins.

overpowering sage flavor

Palate is completely overpowered by the very strong sage flavor. I don't know how the other comments notice anything else. Maybe they've never tasted sage before. This should be branded as "St. George Sage Gin."

It drinks smooth and doesn't have nasty flavors or textures, so I guess it's a decent gin if you want an explicitly sage flavored spirit. Otherwise I'd recommend against it.

If only there were grizzlies in California!

This gin is superb! Complex, balanced, delish! To the chaps at MoM: don’t let your fear of grizzlies keep you from visiting us in California — we haven’t had grizzlies here for more than 100 years! (You have to go to Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, or Alaska for a grizzly.) The same folks who make Terrior Gin also make an incredible single malt scotch, but good luck ever finding any. Cheers!
