Gin Up. Here Are Your Rogue Spirits Weekend Cocktails

Today we’re rolling out part three of our Rogue Spirits cocktail menu, with a special focus on gin.

The recipe for our Spruce Gin was inspired by the Sitka Spruce forests near our hometown of Newport on the Oregon Coast. Fresh spruce needles were a common flavoring back in the 18th and 19th centuries, used in teas, beers and even chewing gum. But for some reason Americans forgot about spruce. We thought it was time to bring it back.

For our first recipe of the day, our take on the gin and soda, with the help of Rogue’s Citrus Cucumber Soda.

Pink Spruce Gin is our Spruce Gin aged in Oregon Pinot Noir barrels. The aging creates a more robust body and mouthfeel, and adds smooth flavors of vanilla, oak and tannins.

Ever hear of the Gin and juice cocktail? Our version is even better.

One reviewer described Rogue Spirits Spruce Gin as like, “tasting the woods and hearing owls.” So where ever you go this weekend, enjoy one of our gin cocktails and join us in the forests of the Oregon Coast Range.
