The first of its kind, Junipero fearlessly led the birth of American craft gin in 1996.
Hell bent on elevating juniper & citrus flavors, the distilling team forged a new path by crafting each batch of Junipero in a small copper pot still, scouring the globe for the most expressive botanicals, and boldly bottling at an unfiltered 98.6 proof.
Decades later Junipero is still made by hand in San Francisco and celebrates those who break with convention to pursue an original path.

Strong juniper core. Crisp and clean with bright citrus notes and herbal complexity.
Big structure with juniper at the forefront that opens up and reveals its full complexity in the ﬁnish with notes of lemon peel, cardamom and lemongrass.
Junipero starts with a base of grain neutral spirits and filtered San Francisco water sourced from the Hetch Hetchy, a watershed where fresh snowmelt from the Sierras is gathered and is known for being among the purest drinking water in the world. Then 12 botanicals, in their natural state, are ground and added straight into the distillate that is then distilled in small batches in a copper pot still. Over 25 Years later, Junipero continues to be distilled as small batches in a copper pot still. The spirit is left unfiltered and bottled at a higher 98.6 Proof creating the beautiful and unique profile of gin that perfectly stands up in cocktails and that can be only Junipero.
