This captivating flower echoes both earthy and tart flavors – we found we just had to make a gin around it
Not All Gins Are Created Equal
Inspired by native Missouri flora, this unique gin combines signature botanicals such as yarrow, elderflower and cubeb berries with hibiscus and juniper. Distilled from American grain, the botanicals are added via a combination of maceration and vapor infusion with the color coming from the signature botanical — hibiscus.

You Will Taste The Difference
The nose has a clear earthy, herbaceous note. The palate is a refreshing expression with a light sweet-heat, faintly tart note. The Hibiscus is integrated, but never dominating. A floral-forward contemporary gin to fit any gin fan.

Pinckney Bend Hibiscus Gin won silver at the San Francisco International Spirits Competition in 2017. It was one of the only “floral” gins awarded medals.

In addition to its erotic beauty, the hibiscus flower is a venerable and ancient flavoring agent. We became enamored with its charms while building the flavor profile for Pinckney Bend Tonic Syrup. Hibiscus features prominently in many cultures as folk medicines and cuisines. We aren’t the first to fall for the distinctive flavor, but we are proud to create a one-of-a-kind gin based around it. We found other traditional flavors such as yarrow, elderflower and cubeb berry are perfect additions to a contemporary juniper base.
How to Enjoy Hibiscus Gin
Enjoy how this gin visually changes classics like an Aviation or The Last Word. The fierce floral notes go really well with a light bitter note.

“This hibiscus gin has a beautifully pink hue and is perfectly summery with subdued cranberry and citrus. When mixed with tonic, the hibiscus nuances of this gin shine.”
“Fans of classic style gin will definitely appreciate the foundational elements of the style, but Handcrafted American Hibiscus Gin is confident in its contemporary approach and with its color and signature botanical approach certainly has an audience in mind. And I think they’ve hit it.”
