Caravan Smokey Distilled Tea Gin - New American Style

2022 Las Vegas TAG Awards - 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.

THE SECRET

Perfume industry R&D to solve tea aroma and flavor stability that is lost after 7 days. Yes, we capture the tea flavor & aroma reflecting the tea leaf used!

Tasting notes

No Added Sugar, GF, VF, Keto-Friendly, Nutritional Labelling

This Gin is perfect for Negroni, less smokey than Mezcal.

"Nose: Insanely vibrant cardamom nose. Hints of black peppercorn, cubeb, white pepper and delicate splash of juniper. Very spice forward.

Flavor: Early, Indian cooking spices. Chiefly cardamom and coriander. Mid-palate, black tea. It gradually develops a smoky facet with green lavender towards the finish.

Smoked juniper berry, cubeb, coriander seed, more coriander, smoked paprika, bitter black tea leaves, and lemon oil all come through on the finish.

Very long, moderately astringent with long lasting base notes that linger on the palate many seconds after a sip.

Caravan Gin is incredibly complex and far more than a one-note gin. The tea is a complement to a complex array of botanicals. Lapsang Souchong black tea & smoky notes, green cardamom pods, mocha notes and lavender. The tea flavors come over late in the palate and give length." Aaron Knoll the GIN is IN

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.
