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.
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.”
Still Austin makes everything from scratch, meaning we have our hands in the entire process. We mill the grains, we ferment the mash, and we distill the botanicals.Buy now
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.Buy now
The result is a perfectly balanced gin, distilled in small batches with real botanicals. It’s not polite to stare.Buy now
The Artist Behind the Label
The Naturalist’s label art was painted by internationally renowned Austin artist Marc Burckhardt, who also painted our Straight Bourbon siren, “The Musician.” Hidden among the ornate overgrowth on the label, gin lovers will find references to many of our American Gin’s lush ingredients, including grapefruit, juniper, orris, angelica and elderflower.Buy now
