New England summer, captured in a bottle. Crafted in handmade copper pot stills in Everett, Massachusetts, Summer Gin is a blend of wild Maine blueberries, fragrant botanicals, and juniper. The result is an earthy, soothing gin, best enjoyed on a relaxing summer day.
Summer Gin was inspired by the wild juniper and blueberries that line the coast of Acadia National Park in Maine. Co-Founders Jackson and Zack are from Mount Dessert Island, and this spirit captures the essence of summers they enjoyed growing up on the island.
How it’s made
Summer Gin is first crafted using a blend of Juniper, orris root, coriander, lemongrass, lavender, and eucalyptus. Sound familiar? These are most of the same botanicals found in their flagship Gin. The difference is that they dial back the amount of lavender and eucalyptus used, and creating a less floral result. They also add orris root to help bring out the blueberry notes. They then soak wild Maine blueberries into the gin for 10 days, remove the blueberries and proof the spirit. Voila, Summer Gin is here!
