An American Gin Renaissance

Slide 3 of 14

Seattle, WA

Captive Spirits Big Gin ($33)
Ben Capdevielle is a third-generation distiller: His dad taught him to make rum from sugar mash when he was 26, and his grandfather made Templeton Rye whiskey clandestinely during Prohibition in Iowa. Now Capdevielle is carrying on the family tradition, making a citrusy, peppery, English-style gin in a small 100-gallon pot still at his new distillery. This winter, Captive will release a gin that has been aged in bourbon barrels from Kentucky’s Heaven Hill. captivespiritsdistilling.com.
