Thanks for writing John! And thank you for the compliment. We’re excited to try the gin and offer up a review for it. Looking around the web doing some research for this review, I was impressed how little was out there about McCormick Gin. The McCormick Distilling Company is located in Weston, Missouri. They don’t even provide additional information about the spirit on their website, aside from “yes, we make a gin!.” The back of the bottle informs us that the base spirit is grain. The distillery itself is one of the oldest in the US: in operation since 1856, though one of the first mentions we find of their gin is in the 1947 Joplin Post.
