Aviation American Gin Batch Distilled

Aviation Gin, served up in a beautiful bottle reminiscent of the Great Gatsby era, caused quite a stir when it was released just over a decade ago… The years since may not have been without turbulence, but suffice it to say Aviation is a gin that has traveled the world and was one of the early pioneers in this new era of craft gin.

Of course many will be familiar with the well-known cocktail of the same name. A simple concoction of gin, maraschino liqueur, and freshly squeezed lemon juice allegedly invented by barman Hugo Ensslin at New York’s Hotel Wallick in 1916. It was this simple mixture that convinced Aviation co-founder Ryan Magarian to realise the potential of gin being more than just something for a G&T or a Martini.
