Wonderbird Gin - Opened in Spring 2019, Wonderbird Spirits is North Mississippi's first distillery. The grain-to-glass gin starts with jasmine rice from the Mississippi Delta. Our fermentation process, which borrows from traditional sake making, sets a beautifully clean foundation for layering subtly complex flavors and aromas. We then vapor distill each of our botanicals individually to capture the best essence of each carefully sourced ingredient. The result is a subtly complex, smooth, sippable gin.
A truly sip-able gin that was designed not only to be enjoyed on the rocks but also in a martini. The gin has great clarity and a silky mouthfeel with a discernible complexity allowing you to taste each individual botanical used.
Wonderbird Gin is now available in Florida.
