Fashioned after Holland’s renowned malt wine genevers, Ransom Dry Gin combines the maltiness and hop aromas of the style with a decidedly more intense botanical infusion. The selection of botanicals for this gin was done with tradition in mind, but Ransom also sought to capture the essence Oregon’s terroir with the inclusion of the iconic Oregon Marionberry and local hops. The result is a highly aromatic gin with the most compelling attributes of both genever and dry gin styles. We believe it speaks meaningfully to its Dutch heritage as well as its Oregon provenance.
Ransom Dry Gin begins with a base wort of malted barley and rye, which we mash and ferment at our distillery, and an infusion of botanicals in corn based spirits. We source the finest sustainably farmed botanicals in their natural form for the infusion. The gin is distilled using a direct fired alambic pot still in order to preserve the maximum amount of aromatics, flavor and body. Only the "heart of the hearts" (the very best portion of distillate) is retained for this bottling.
Ransom Dry Gin opens with ethereal aromatics of hops and white flowers, set off by bass notes from fresh marionberry and juniper berries. The palate is rich and silky, with malt flavors punctuated by citrus and exotic spice piquancy from cardamom and coriander. The gin finishes with suppleness and power, with the viscosity and richness of malt carrying clean, focused botanicals.
