When the sun was still shining on the British Empire; those hardy colonialists braved the Sirocco, the Mistral and the Monsoon winds that blew hot, dry and dependably across the underbelly of the Asian Continent and across North Africa and Southern Europe.
There was only one marvelous concoction that allowed these Englishmen (and women) to survive these climates – the ubiquitous Gin and Tonic.
The noonday sun is nothing to be taken lightly especially here in the Central Highlands of Arizona. We are also a fierce breed enduring the hot dry Santa Ana and the cold dry Chinook. We ride horses, motorcycles, hike, bike, climb, play golf, tennis and dream of a frontier long gone. While we don’t have to worry about malaria; we do have heatstroke, cracked and dry lips, skin with every bit of moisture sucked out and a powerful thirst.
Thumb Butte Distillery has just the potion to help you endure your specific climate. We distill our Gurley Street Gin 6 times to insure purity and infuse the spirit with the traditional bundle of herbs while adding our own local Juniper Berries and Western Sage.
Whether you prefer the traditional Gin and Tonic or one of our newer suggestions such as the Gin and Ginger we guarantee that malaria is not something you need worry about and you “won’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows”.
What to Expect:
Thumb Butte Distillery’s traditional London dry gin is a top shelf refreshing and clean gin. Our Juniper berries are sourced locally and infused, along with other herbs in our gin still to create a wonderfully smooth and clean tasting gin. Create a traditional martini or a refreshing gin and tonic and enjoy.
