“…truly is the ‘utility’ gin of our time”


The standard In New World Gin®, Death’s Door Gin is a super-premium spirit that takes its names from the most treacherous waterway in the Great Lakes that separates Washington Island from the Door County peninsula in northern Wisconsin—a stretch called “Death’s Door Passage.”

Death’s Door is one of the cornerstone brands of the crafts spirits movement, and an industry leader in distilling consistently exceptional premium spirits from grain in its own distillery in Middleton, Wisconsin.

Death’s Door Gin is big enough to stand up to classic or vintage cocktail treatment, but soft enough to be enjoyed on the rocks or as a dry martini.  It truly is the ‘utility’ gin of our time.

Death’s Door Gin

Death’s Door Gin has a surprisingly simple botanical mix of juniper berries, coriander and fennel. Using a mix of juniper berries that includes the wild juniper of Washington Island (Juniperus virginiana) with coriander and fennel seeds, Death’s Door Spirits is able to showcase how complementary and complex simple expressions can be, with a flavorful base that includes hard red winter wheat, corn and malted barley. 

It has a full London Dry flavor without all of the bitterness due to the vapor extraction process and the base spirit (Death’s Door vodka).  In fact, you can taste all three botanicals: loaded juniper berries up front; spicy, citrusy notes from the coriander seeds in the mid-palate; and a soft, cooling finish provided by the fennel seeds.
