The nose has dull juniper, wet dark boreal forest, lavender and rooty, earthy spice.
The palate is where some of Aviation Gin's spice flourishes are more evident. Notes suggestive of root beer early lead into hints of cinnamon, cassia and a fair bit of cardamom. Aviation Gin finishes with a floral and earthy spice note, with a very literal hint of birch beer and flamed orange peel. The finish is long and moderately warm.
Hailing from Portland Oregon, Aviation gin is a small batch New Western Style Dry Gin. It is thought to be the first true partnership between distiller and bartender. Leading US mixologist Ryan Magarian, its creator, describes it as a "botanical democracy" of juniper, cardamom, coriander, lavender, anise seed, sarsaparilla, and dried orange peel. Aviation sets itself apart with its slightly subdued juniper, citrus presence and earthy flavour against the backdrop of creamy rye spirit which makes it uniquely enjoyable all by itself, both ice cold and at room temperature. Aviation takes its name from the Aviation Cocktail, a personal favourite of Ryan Magarian.
