Tasting Note

Terroir is a forest in your glass—with ultra woodsy notes of Douglas fir, California bay laurel, sage, and a hint of citrus. Stunning on the rocks or in a martini. Absolutely lovely in a Collins garnished with fresh fennel and bay leaf (or whatever fresh herbs you happen to have on hand). For some, the Douglas fir in this gin immediately triggers an association with Christmas—but for us it’s a gin for all seasons. At the height of summer, try Terroir with fresh huckleberries, blueberries, or raspberries for an earthy, brambly delight.

History

When Jörg founded St. George Spirits in 1982, he laid the groundwork for the modern American artisan distillation movement. At the time, he was new to the United States, having come to this country as Germany's youngest judge on assignment from the Ministry of Culture. He fell in love with the Bay Area’s nascent food culture and its embrace of top-quality raw materials, which resonated with what he already knew from his family’s generations of distilling in the Black Forest.

Production

We use a well-seasoned wok to roast the coriander seeds used in Terroir Gin. (The wok we use was Lance’s 13th birthday present. It was on his wish list. Yes, he was an unusual child.) Coriander isn’t endemic to the Bay Area, but roasted coriander has an intoxicating earthy bouquet reminiscent of the region’s chaparral. On roasting days, the entire distillery is filled with the most fantastic aromas. We distill the fir and sage individually on a 250-liter still to minimize the impact of seasonal variation. The fresh bay laurel leaves and juniper berries are vapor-infused in a botanicals basket. The other botanicals go right in the pot of our 1,500-liter still.
