American Gin: "The Naturalist" - Still Austin Whiskey Co.

“The Naturalist”

American Gin

The natural world shines through this perfectly balanced gin, made in small batches with real botanicals like juniper, cinnamon, citrus peels, elderflower and allspice.

We make “The Naturalist” from scratch, milling the grains, fermenting the mash, and distilling the spirit in two types of stills.

It’s time to get back to nature.

Tasting Notes

  • Nose Bright Citrus Followed By Taragon & Elderflower
  • Palate Round & rich with rye spice, cinnamon & gentle juniper
  • Finish Juicy, with white peppercorn & hints of grapefruit


  • Juniper Berry

  • Orris Root

  • Orange

  • Cassia Cinnamon

  • and 8 other botanicals

Each 100-gallon batch of the Naturalist is distilled using our smaller pot still, known as “The Queen,” and we’ve infused the spirit with a lush combination of 12 botanicals, including coriander, elderflower, Jamaican allspice, two types of cinnamon and three types of citrus.

  • “Quite citrus forward at the get go, the juniper peeks out soon after. A fresh, fruity and semi-dry gin that is great on its own, or in citrus based cocktails.”

We focus on every detailed step to prepare this gin the right way—even using our own unaged rye whiskey as a base for the gin. Our Still Austin Gin touches two types of stills: our column still to craft the cleanest rye spirit base, and our copper-pot still to make sure the aromatics blend seamlessly.

The result is a perfectly balanced gin, distilled in small batches with real botanicals. It’s not polite to stare.
