Nothing was going to prohibit us from creating the best Gin.
I founded this company to make the best spirits I can. I love whiskey and rum, but I also love gin too, damnit. So we make this glorious gin!
In dubious honor of the infamous Andrew Volstead, the Father of Prohibition, we proudly present this American Gin. Juniper forward, with sweet elderberry and bold pine and sage flavor, rounded out with citrus and warm spice notes. Exquisitely balanced, this gin is different than that made under the stuffy monarchy we rightly left behind all those years ago. This is an American Gin with no apologies. The kind of gin you’d expect from a craft distillery founded on stellar whiskey and rum. It’s balanced enough to sip alone and also shine in any cocktail. This is the gin for people who like drinking.
The artwork is intended to represent rebel graffiti on a government poster by an unknown moonshiner during Prohibition. We used an actual historical photo of old Andy (courtesy of the Library of Congress). I like to think V would’ve approved…
TASTING NOTES: JUNIPER FORWARD, NOSE OF SAGE, ELDERBERRIES, LEMONGRASS & PINE. SLIGHT GINGER SPICE ON PALATE OVER PINEY SAGE WITH FENNEL NOTES. ON THE FINISH CARDAMOM SPICE AND CUBEB PEPPERS EMERGE. VERY BOTANICAL, EXTREMELY UNIQUE GIN.

WE KNOW THAT THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE TAKE TIME
At StilL 630 we personally and patiently hand craft our spirits and age them in a variety of wooden barrels. We believe that doing things the right way is the only way, even if it takes more time.
DETERMINE OUR FUTURE
We’re searching for incredible mash bills for single malt, wheat whiskey, brandy, tequila, smoked whiskey, barrel-aged gin, bourbon, rum, etc. We experiment and then you decide what becomes the next great StilL 630 spirit.
