Gavin's Gin

Gavin’s American Dry Gin pays homage to the key role that my hometown of Sharon, MA played in the Revolutionary War. Here on the shores of Gavin’s Pond, Colonel Richard Gridley—later honored by George Washington as “America’s First Chief Engineer”—established his furnace, manufacturing cannons and ammunition for the rebel army. After an old crate of gin was found amongst the ruins of the furnace by Gridley’s great great grandson, Gavin’s Gin was reborn.

An "original" bottle of Gavin's gin is pictured alongside the new liter bottle and a branded bottle of bitters.
