Tasting Notes

L.A. has not made as many waves as other cities in the local artisan distilling scene, but the thankfully there is The Spirit Guild, and everything running of the stills Morgan McLachlan is running has been some of the best stuff we've tasted anywhere. This gin, made for nomadic drinks group Amass, combines local, terroir driven Southern California botanicals and mixes them with rare innovative contributions from Reishi mushrooms, Lion's mane mushrooms, Grains of Paradise, Ashwagandha and more. Not only does it work, we're confident this is one of the better gins you can currently find.

Staff Pick Notes

There are many facets of my personality and tastes I can proudly attribute to growing up in southern California, so I was delighted to find that terroir-driven AMASS gin delivered a taste of home. Twenty-nine botanicals including grapefruit and lemon peels make for a complex citrus forward gin. And indigenous California Bay and Cascara Sagrada give it a nice herbaceous quality . It manages to be citrus forward without also being too floral or too overpowering, and ends with a peppery, earthy finish from the addition of mushrooms and Long Pepper. I drink it on the rocks with a lemon peel, in a Gimlet, or any drink that I want to have a bright citrus highlight.

Astor's Glossary of Terms


California makes more wine than any other state in the United States. Not only does the state grow a variety of noble grape varieties like Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, there are also plantings of lesser-known varieties such as Nebbiolo, Roussanne and Mourvèdre to name just a few.
