Brooklyn Gin is a craft spirit made in New York with fresh citrus peels and hand-cracked juniper. Our gin is fresh, complex, and flavorful. It’s good enough to drink on its own and we're proud of that.
In 2010 and in kinship with the craftspeople who embody the Brooklyn Spirit, our founders Emil Jättne and Joe Santos set out to make a high-quality small-batch American gin by hand, on their own terms. Since then, the company they have built around this guiding principle remains proudly independent and purposely small.
We believe in the American tradition of the cocktail hour and strongly believe we can enrich that experience with our gin. At the end of the day, we want to help people drink better. By making the best gin we can, we hope people will use it to create their own special moments.
Enjoying an enthusiastic resurgence in modern cocktail culture, Gin, a.k.a. ‘Dutch Courage,’ was originally touted as a 16th century cure for cowardice and stomach ailments. Arguably the broadest and most dynamic category of spirits in terms of flavor profiles and production styles, Gin is a distilled grain spirit that derives its primary flavor from juniper berries and secondary flavors from a dazzling array of spices, herbs, fruits and botanicals. It is both produced and enjoyed all around the world and is most commonly mixed into cocktails such as the Martini or simply added to tonic water.
