16 Sep USA TODAY 10Best – Best Craft Gin Distillery

Gin, a spirit made from neutral spirits or other base spirits, gets its name from the word “Genievre,” French for “juniper.” While juniper berries often take center stage in the flavor profile of gin, modern-day distilleries are adding a host of supporting botanicals to create complex and varied spirits, perfect for crafting a classic gin and tonic.


Sebastopol, Calif.

Northern California-based Spirit Works Distillery crafts grain-to-glass spirits made from California-grown organic red winter wheat.

The Barrel Gin spends several months in new American white oak, while the Sloe Gin and Barrel Reserve Sloe Gin are made by steeping sloe berries in gin.
