Our Declaration of Independence
Aviation belongs to an entirely new category of dry gins. These gins embody a shift away from the usual overabundance of juniper toward a more forward balance of botanicals. Aviation explores the rich, floral and savory notes of lavender, cardamom, and sarsaparilla to capture the lushness, spice, creativity, and freshness of the Pacific Northwest. In this way, we offer the American palate its first real taste of American gin.
Why the name “Aviation”?
A simple and unique balance of gin, maraschino liqueur, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. That’s the classic Aviation cocktail invented by barman Hugo Ensslin at New York’s Hotel Wallick almost a century ago. One taste is all it took for Aviation co-founder Ryan Magarian to realize that instead of being limited to martinis and gin & tonics, “gin, in the hands of a passionate and well trained bartender, just might be the world’s most mixable spirit.” So a brand name, and a mission, was born.
