Cape Rooibos Distilled Tea Gin - New American Style

2022 San Francisco Int. Spirits Comp. - Double Gold.

Tea first, juniper second, (non-piney).

A one-shot distillation creates a seamless flow of aromas & flavors with beginning, middle & finish. A harmony that can’t be achieved by blending.

Distilled tea gins capture the pure essence of the tea leaf with no distracting tea color or tannin of steeped or infused tea gins. The purity of tea aroma & flavor in a clear spirit.

Brand Story

Long-time Napa Valley vintners, lovers of spirits and enamored by gin, we began this journey to capture the essence of each ingredient to craft…spirits with spirit. Owners Gerry & Linda Rowland established Coit Spirits in 2018. 

Using foragers and wildcrafters, we find our herbs at peak maturity. The ratio of each ingredient affects the synergy of the final aromas and flavors. A botanical mix that looks good on paper may not succeed, and only taste will tell.

Wine generously allows you three to four weeks during the fermentation to get the basic product right. Gin gives you five hours to bring out the individual character of the botanicals during the distillation. Our amazing journey has brought us to crafting spirits… Trained by European Ginsmiths we felt perfectly prepared for the challenge, in addition to having harvested and bottled 52 vintages of wine in three countries, two hemispheres.
