Capitol Gin

Overview

Tasting Notes

The Specifics

J.J. Pfister’s Capitol Gin is an ode to our hometown of Sacramento. Hand-crafted, and artfully infused, Capitol Gin is made from a pure, neutral rye spirit and 9 highly curated botanicals. Capitol Gin is a Concours d’Spirits Double Gold award winner and rated 97 points by Tasting Panel.

Capitol Gin offers a juniper-forward nose with a complex underlying aroma of fennel, citrus zest, and wild pine aromatics. The powerful palate is a mix of subtle spice flavors from cubeb berries, fennel and cardamon – leading to a balanced and refreshing finish.

At 94 proof, Capitol Gin is infused with 9 botanicals – juniper, orris root, angelica, cardamom, cubeb berries, coriander, lemongrass, fennel seed, and lavender – and then rests for 4 weeks to allow its full-flavor to shine. Each bottle is 750 mL.
