Skeptic produces their gin using processes rarely performed in the industry. First, they filter the base spirit (made from corn) in the same manner as their vodka (carbon filtered four times in their proprietary blend of ultra pure carbon) for exceptional smoothness and to remove impurities. Next, they soak the unique recipe of fresh fruit and botanical ingredients directly in the base spirit for 5 days. Last and most importantly, they cold vacuum distill the infused spirit at below room temperature (about 50 degrees Fahrenheit) in Skeptic's one-of-a-kind, custom-built vacuum column still. This process preserves delicate flavors and aromas that are normally cooked out or altered under standard distillation temperatures.

The resulting gin is an award-winning, ultra-smooth, intensely flavorful yet balanced, citrus and aromatic gin that will elevate any cocktail to new heights. The flavors are a medley of citrus, fresh fruit, and spices. The juniper up front quickly morphs into layers of fresh mango, grapefruit, citrus and spice, with a soft floral and orange peel finish. So smooth and flavorful, it can be enjoyed neat or in your favorite gin cocktail. Naturally gluten free.

    The bright spearmint scent gives a hint of what’s to come: a refreshing, tingly sip with plenty of lemon peel, juniper and minty zing, with just a tinge of sweetness on the exhale. This is distilled from corn, with botanicals that include hibiscus, gooseberry, mango and cardamom, although the soft palate doesn’t read as particularly floral or fruity.
