It seems fitting that a gin named after Big Sur is making a ‘big’ impact on the forest of choices when it comes to the sought after spirit. Calwise Spirits Co. has crafted a gin honoring one of the most treasured places on the West Coast, and it’s raking in awards. With 12 different herbs including juniper, sage, yerba santa, bay, fennel, and elderberry, the gin bottles up the experience of an outdoor excursion at Big Sur — Teddy Roosevelt would have shed a tear over this taste.
The team distills it from premium wine grapes to achieve its silky smooth and heavy flavored taste. It works fantastic to add a kick to any classic Gin Martini, or even better, on the rocks next to a campfire deep in the Redwoods. Cheers, gents.
