Wine Enthusiast 94 points - Discovering this artisan gin distilled in West Virginia was a pleasant surprise. Though it’s perfumy and pretty, it has restraint. The enticing aroma is decidedly botanical, with notes of fresh basil, white flowers and orange blossom. Though the flavors read as floral, they’re balanced with cool lightness and a honey-sweet finish. Consider this one for fruity and floral spring cocktails.
With serious citrus, a bit of black-pepper spice, and light and pleasant Juniper notes, Smooth Ambler Greenbrier Gin exudes the cool smoothness our brand-name implies. Our gin is designed to have a rich and luxurious mouth-feel, without being overly “piney” like a lot of typical, by-the-book Dry, British gins. Named for our home, the hills that surround us, and the birthplace of the pace of life where Smooth Ambler was born, Smooth Ambler Greenbrier Gin is served as well in a Gin and Ginger as it is in a classic Gin and Tonic – or wherever else you want it to Amble.

Our spirits are produced with talent and skill informed by hundreds of years of distilling excellence and are guided by the desire to acquire the purest and best ingredients, to do the best with them one slow step at a time, and shepherd the process from when the grain arrives at the back of our distillery to when the ice clinks in the well-deserved glass in front of you.
