Step 01 | Base Spirit: 6x Distilled
Our ultra clean, 6-times distilled, gluten-free corn base spirit provides the perfect blank canvas to allow our wonderful Californian botanicals to truly shine.
Step 02 | The Botanicals
It's time to prepare and ready the botanicals for distillation. Our carefully selected botanicals are sourced from sustainable organic farms, or wild foraged. First, all our sun-dried botanicals are weighed, inspected and poured directly into the pot still. Then the fresh hand-zested citrus and fir-tree needles are placed into a vapor extraction bag. This wonderfully fragrant giant tea bag is carefully tied inside our copper pot still helmet, directly above the base spirit.

Step 03 | The Final
Botanical Distillation: 7x Distilled
The most important and final step is the botanical distillation. During distillation, the alcohol vapors rise up to the extraction basket and delicately heat the fresh citrus & fir, releasing all their wonderful flavors. These rich vapors continue across the line-arm and are cooled and condensed. The Gray Whale Gin then rests for 48 hours until we bottle.
