Taste your way along the pacific coastline.

First, the aroma of citrus carries you north, followed by juniper and a subtle hint of cool coastal fir trees. As you move further up the path, fresh mint and the umami flavors of kombu sea kelp are rounded out by a beautiful lasting creamy almond finish. Its young, bold and wise beyond its years.

Here at Gray Whale Gin, we believe a lovingly handcrafted spirit brings people together for good times, and while we're together we can also do some good in the world. It's a simple notion that we cooked up on a camping trip to Big Sur. We were humbled by California's stunning beauty, feeling lucky to be on that rocky coast, surrounded by ancient trees, and the endless blue of the Pacific Ocean. Looking out past McWay Falls at the turquoise sea we saw a Gray Whale and it's calf on their own road trip up North. A trip Gray Whales have been making for more than 30 million years, long before we stood up on all fours. Now, we celebrate their 12,000 mile journey, with a beautiful gin made of botanicals foraged along the migratory path of that majestic creature, from Baja California limes to sea kelp in Mendocino; as well as a few stops in between. Every bottle of Gray Whale Gin supports Oceana, protecting and restoring the world's oceans, so that Gray Whales will continue to make that epic journey for another 30 million years.
