Our Spirits

Hand Crafted American Gin

Our gin’s unique flavor is achieved by handling botanicals separately; some are macerated and distilled while others are suspended in the still’s vapor column. You will taste the difference.
Corn Whiskey

American Corn Whiskey

This Whiskey is an excellent example of what was produced by skilled distillers, sold by reputable merchants and consumed by working people in the early and mid 19th century.

Three Grain American Vodka

This spirit is made from wheat, barley, and rye. Grains are distilled multiple times; wheat in a column still, barley and rye in a pot still. The result is a vodka of exceedingly high purity and unique character.

Rested American Whiskey

In the early 19th century, distillers quickly learned that young corn whiskey, ‘rested’ for even a short time in ‘burnt’ white oak barrels, develops a charm and character all its own. The best white oak on the planet comes from Missouri.

Our Tonic

Our unique tonic syrup is the only commercial syrup on the planet developed specifically to harmonize with the flavor profile of our award-winning companion gin.

Pinckney Bend Tonic Syrup

A perfect gin mixer — over a year in the making.

Pinckney Bend Classic Tonic Syrup is fresher, bolder and more complex than commercial tonic water.  It’s concentrated, and a single 500ml bottle makes 16 drinks. Our Tonic is handcrafted in small batches, is made from all-natural ingredients and contains NO high fructose corn syrup.
