Mother Earth Gin possesses the potential to stand completely on its own over a big cube or in an extra dry Martini. It also presents itself as a spirit that is wholly adaptable, serving as an ideal base in a complex array of cocktails. With an intoxicating nose, Mother Earth Gin is fragrant without being overbearing. It’s a spirit that remains highly aromatic, lively, dynamic, and refreshing. The perfect combination of bright citrus and crisp juniper. Moreover, despite its complexity, Mother Earth Gin remains totally unassuming. It’s the kind of gin you can take home to your Dad or introduce to your circle of hipster friends. Mother Earth Gin is the most contemporary and dangerously delicious spirit to come out of North Carolina. Simply put, it’s the gin that made me love gin.

Most of the cocktails I do are twists and turns on classics: flips, fizzes, sours, smashes, cobblers, bucks, duos, trios etc. My approach is to try to make cocktails approachable. Sometimes I’ll start with one specific ingredient in mind, and then try to build on what works well with that ingredient. Seasonal products are always front of mind for me.
These are versatile spirits with a lot of personality, much like the guys behind them. So the cocktails we came up with aren’t just influenced by flavors and aromas, but by the people behind them.
#1 – For those of you who say “I don’t like gin”: TRY THIS GIN!!!
#2 – Fresh juices and real sugar are way better than store bought sours mix
#3 – Get creative, hit up your local farmers market for fresh produce and fresh herbs. You’ll be surprised what a sprig of basil or mint garnish can do for a julep or G n T
#4 – Love your Mother.
