About Durham Distillery

OUR HISTORY

Durham Distillery was born of a passion for gin. This love of gin was passed from grandparent to our co-founder and CEO, Melissa Katrincic. For her, family time was centered around the daily ritual of cocktail hour with dirty martinis and gin & tonics. 

Leading up to our launch in 2015, Melissa and Lee meticulously developed the recipes for Conniption American Dry and Conniption Navy Strength Gins along with our three Damn Fine Liqueurs.

THE ART & SCIENCE BEHIND CONNIPTION GIN

Conniption Gins start their journey in our 230-liter custom-designed copper pot still. Using the art of traditional vapor infusion for the distillation of our gins, botanicals such as juniper, Indian coriander and cardamom sit directly above our 95% neutral corn ethanol base, where the alcohol vapors pick up each ingredients distinct flavors as it moves through our still.
