Original Ingredients

Colorado Grown Grain- Dry Land Distillers Gin is distilled from Colorado Grown Heirloom and Antero Wheat.


Pure Colorado Water – Our water comes from one of the most protected and highest quality native water basins in the country.


Original Yeast – We cultivate and harvest our yeast on site specifically for our heirloom grains.


Native Colorado Botanicals - Our gin is a true native Colorado gin. We use only native botanicals such as rose hips, sage, juniper, and bee balm to unlock delicate, floral notes that create a gorgeous, light sipping gin.

Distilling process

Native Colorado Botanicals

Dry Land Distillers gin is made from Colorado-grown White Sonora or Antero wheat. We do a primary distillation in our custom post still and a secondary distillation in our 12-plate column still with a botanical basket in the top of the column. To preserve the delicate flavors of the native botanicals, we allow the vapor to pass only once through the gin basket.
