Tasting Notes

  • Sweet aromatic notes of lilac and lily blooms
  • Delicate palate of lavender and citrus
  • Gentle floral finish with hints of rose



Our Lilac Gin blooms brilliantly once a year in limited quantities. Made each spring as a complement to Rochester’s rich festival and floral history. Once known as The Flower/Flour City, we recognize Rochester’s roots with a gin that sports a beautiful bouquet of lilac, lavender, rose, and hibiscus. Each flower petal is steeped, distilled, and recombined to create a light and delicate flavor.

Enjoy our Lilac Gin in a sweet and aromatic cocktail such as an Aviation or Highland Park. Relish in the warm and happy feelings of Spring with our favorite Lilac Gin cocktails. Our Lilac Gin has subtle hints of juniper, coriander, and other botanical components that make this spirit highly sought after. Make sure to get yours before we run out.
