Our Continually Hopped Gin
"Back in ’02, Dogfish Head was the first to distill hops in gin. Distilling with hops is tricky, because you are hyper-concentrating flavors, and it can be tough to single out the desirable notes. So we adopted the ‘continual hopping’ method used to make our signature lineup of IPAs to gradually dose in whole-leaf hops. The result is a gin bursting with hop goodness.” – Dogfish Head founder & president Sam Calagione
How it’s made
Gin is simply vodka distilled with juniper berries and other botanicals. And what better base to start with than our very own scratch-made Analog Vodka.
Along with coriander seeds, angelica root, chamomile flowers, cubeb berries and other botanicals, Head Distiller Graham Hamblett adds whole-leaf hops in each step of distillation.
