The first of its kind, Junipero fearlessly led the birth of American craft gin in 1996. Hell bent on elevating juniper & citrus flavors, the distilling team forged a new path by crafting each batch of Junipero in a small copper pot still, scouring the globe for the most expressive botanicals, and boldly bottling at an unfiltered 98.6 proof. Decades later Junipero is still made by hand in San Francisco and celebrates those who break with convention to pursue an original path. More firsts. Less Fear. Live Life Unfiltered.

“If there ever was an original gangster American craft gin, Junipero is it,” Stoddard says “Launched in 1996 in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill neighborhood, Junipero breathed new life into an otherwise flat gin category at the time. With an unabashedly bold presence in both ABV strength and flavor, Junipero still holds its own in a diverse range of cocktails, but I adore its robust character in a classic Negroni cocktail.”
