What You're Saying About Us...

"OH MY GIN! Drink this and you might just want to name your firstborn Juniper. So good."


"I've been drinking gin for 25 years, and have tasted more gins than I can count from all over the world. Conniption Navy Strength is one of the two best gins I've ever tasted, and the best available in the United States. The flavor profile is perfect; truly, it doesn't get any better than this."


"A MILLION STARS! Five isn’t nearly enough. American Dry turned me into a gin drinker! Perfect for summer (and winter, and spring..), delicious in every kind cocktail and with every flavor of mixer. Drink some...you won’t regret it. Until maybe the next morning."


"I just recently found my love for gin. I have had some other brands and thought they were good. Then I found Conniption from Durham Distillery and O. M. G. it’s incredible. So much flavor and spice notes. Perfect drink is conniption with a splash of tonic. Thanks for making a legit product."
