Additional Information

Death's Door Gin employs a base of Washington Island wheat and malted barley from Chilton, Wisconsin. Death's Door Gin has a full London Dry flavor without all of the bitterness because of our extraction process and the base spirit they use. In fact, you can taste all three botanicals: loaded juniper berries up front; spicy, citrusy notes from the coriander seeds in the mid-palate; and a soft, cooling finish provided by the fennel seeds. Death's Door Gin is big enough to stand up to classic or vintage cocktail treatment, but soft enough to be enjoyed on the rocks or as a dry martini. It truly is the "utility" gin of our time.

Death Door's Gin

An intriguingly named gin that takes it moniker from a stretch of water known as Death’s Door Passage that separates Washington Island (part of Door County) and mainland Wisconsin. The gin itself is produced on Washington Island using just three botanicals – juniper, fennel and coriander. This unique approach results in a gin that is perfectly balanced with all 3 botanicals shining through on the palate with secondary flavours of mint and citrus zest.

Using the approach you would expect from micro distillers, Death’s Door is alarmingly simple yet the end product is something that has layers of complexity on top of the up front juniper berries, spice and citrus from the coriander and a long, cool finish courtesy of the fennel. Death’s Door works perfectly in classic & contemporary cocktails yet is one of the few gins that slips down easily served simply over ice.

Death's Door is a small batch distilled gin which combines local juniper berries and botanicals to bring you layers of taste. The experience begins with a bright juniper bouquet followed by a mild middle note of coriander and cinched with the crisp, clean finish of fennel. The wild juniper berries are hand harvested from the open fields and forests of Washington Island and captured in this spirit with other Wisconsin botanicals.

Brian Ellison must run one of the hardest to find micro-distilleries in the US, on Washington Island, Door County in Wisconsin. As any one who has watched the Green Bay Packers play in the winter, it gets very cold out here on Lake Michigan! 

Brian takes local organic Hard Red Winter Wheat and makes his own mash to distill in a 90-gallon copper still. Triple distilled and using only three botanicals; juniper, coriander and fennel, Death’s Door Gin is fresh new entry in the micro-gin category.
