Virginia Gins

VirGINia Has a Lot to Offer!

Gin spread around the globe due to European colonization as a cure for a variety of maladies. Early American colonials brought this favored spirit with them to places like the Jamestown Colony. It’s no surprise that in modern times Virginia distillers are reinventing this historic spirit.

The name "gin" originates from the French and Dutch words for juniper. Gin is distilled from grain at a high proof, and is flavored with juniper berries and a range of other natural ingredients. Virginia distillers often source local herbs, berries and other ingredients to achieve a wide range of Virginia gin variations. Explore what VirGINia has to offer!

Gin serves as the base for many classic cocktails. Check out our recommended gin cocktail recipes like the Bees Knees, Gin Martini or the most famous, the Gin and Tonic!
