Deviation Distilling‘s Mountain Herb Gin is made with native juniper, white sage, rosemary, and spruce tips—all wild foraged from the Rocky Mountains—creating a gin that truly embodies the spirit of the backcountry. In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, Deviation Distilling has shared with us a festive green cocktail recipe full of botanical flavor and a spicy kick.
