BROOKLYN GIN was launched in 2010 by
co founders Joe Santos and Emil Jattne.
With heads full of dreams, a flair for
entrepreneurialism and a passion for craftsmanship,
they broke free from a large spirits company to
create their own handcrafted American gin.
Brooklyn, NY is famous
for its ingenuity, energy and a
determination to succeed.
We’re proud to say that
our city’s spirit, plus the
freshest ingredients and a
commitment to traditional
craftsmanship, have shaped
the standout qualities of
makes it a hotbed for
innovation and creation.
Warehouses and factory
buildings have been
transformed into a hub for
creativity and invention.
, musicians ,
designers and entrepreneurs
contribute to an exciting,
community one that
BROOKLYN GIN is very
happy to be part of.
We believe in all things fresh.
, fresh ingredients
and fresh methods .
we don’t cut corners .
This guiding principal
has created the world’s
freshest tasting gin.
We’ll drink to that.
We steep our botanicals overnight in a barrel
of American corn spirit, prior to distilling in
our small, hand operated copper pot still.
After chill filtering, each batch is taste tested
before we fill , cork and label the bottles.
Our bottle is considered a work of art, with
the bronze medallion and heavy copper cap
reflecting the industrial heritage of Brooklyn.
For a more vibrant taste, we hand
peel fresh lemons, limes, oranges
and clementines, rather than using
dried citrus which produces a dull,
flat flavor .
Our juniper berries are hand cracked
to release sweeter and spicier notes
for a more flavorful gin.
Yes, it takes extra time and effort,
but we believe you can taste the
difference in every sip.
BROOKLYN GIN is
good enough to drink on
its own, but also makes a great
martini and gives real
character to gin cocktails.
