Nothing sinister in its name. Death’s Door refers to a narrow strait between Washington Island in Lake Michigan and the peninsula of Door County, Wisconsin. They chose deliberately to connect the name of the gin to its native region. All the ingredients are produced in the immediate vicinity: “Committed to working with local farmers.”
Death’s Door proves that you can make an excellent gin with few ingredients: juniper, coriander, and fennel seed. Because they chose to minimize the use of botanicals, they have perfect control over the heating process. Although a simple production process, the rich palette is quite complex. Death’s Door is rightly one of the favorite gins of famous cocktail makers worldwide. Try it out with one of our great Cuban or New World Cigars.
