Every bottle of Aviation Gin is handcrafted in small 100-case batches by a small, dedicated team of master distillers in Portland, Oregon. Like the world’s finest gins, Aviation is distilled using a proprietary maceration process that produces a pure medley of botanical flavor. So smooth and delicious, it can fly solo, or take any mixed drink to new heights.
“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 Distillery. 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. In creating Aviation Gin, we have worked feverishly to define a precise set of botanicals that come together to mark this spirit as a definitively Northwest product.’
