Aviation Gin was born from an idea by Ryan Magarian of Liquid relation and two friends in the States. In June of 2006, after nearly 30 rounds of trials and adjustments, their vision became reality when the trio felt they had finally captured the essence of their obsession, and Aviation Gin was unleashed upon discriminating imbibers worldwide, resulting in what many believe to be the first brand partnership between distiller and bartender in American History.
In no uncertain terms, gin is little more than a complex vodka infusion. Any number of botanicals including, specifically and notably, juniper, are used to flavor neutral spirit at which point a gin is given the breathe of life. From our perspective, making a truly delicious gin, requires a dedication to finding a delicate balance between each individual botanical in the blend.
In creating Aviation Gin, Lee, Christian, and Ryan worked feverishly to put together a precise set of botanicals they felt would best come together to mark the spirit as a definitively Northwest product.
