StyleGustaf Navy Strength Gin
AboutAs forthright as the steely-eyed Swede for whom it was named — the distiller’s great grandfather — Gustaf Goos-tahf is a Navy Strength gin with a bracing kick. Gustaf is made from non-GMO AC Hazlet Winter Rye, planted and harvested by the distiller. Every step of production – milling, mashing, fermenting, distilling and bottling – is done by hand.
Gustaf’s 11 botanicals (including Meyer lemon, grains of paradise, fennel, coriander and meadowsweet) are individually sorted into unbleached muslin bags and distilled separately, then carefully portioned into the master blend.
Tasting NotesLavender, juniper and honeysuckle on the nose, with a trace of citrus akin to yuzu or lime. Spicy and expansive on the palate, it finishes with notes of white pepper and licorice. A zesty, lingering expression of earth and sea.
