Conniption: Modern, Unrivaled gin

Born from a passion for gin that began with gin-soaked olives stolen from a grandfather’s martini, Conniption Gin honors the art of traditional gin distillation while simultaneously embraces modern scientific methods. Conniption Gins are now recognized as the most awarded and among the best distilled in the country.

the art

Pot still distillation has been used for centuries by master distillers to produce world-class gins. We honor these traditions while we expand upon them. Leveraging the vapor infusion method with a custom design tray produces consistent, beautiful flavors in Conniption Gin.

Cucumbers in the rotary evaporator

The Science

Our mantra: "Treat botanicals like they should be treated." As the first distillery in the United States to use rotary evaporators, we distill our delicate, fresh ingredients such as cucumbers, honeysuckle flowers and figs without any heat. This cold vacuum-distillation produces clean, true flavors. You'll taste the difference.
