    Jasper's Gin

    Farm-Raised, American Style Gin.

    The taste of gin. Sometimes it’s an acquired one. This is not the gin you’ve had before, but will be the gin that you have again. Jasper’s Gin is made with farm-harvested grains and hand-selected botanicals that stand up to the juniper inherent to the spirit. Bold move. This is the gin to your tonic.

    Jasper’s Bourbon Barrel Gin

    Jasper’s Bourbon Barrel Gin spends 60 days in a 6 year old bourbon barrel…the perfect amount of time to mellow and pick up the characteristic sweetness from the barrel’s previous occupant. Floral on the nose with heavy notes of lemongrass and anise, this gin is extremely approachable, and can be enjoyed by itself or in your favorite classic gin cocktail.

our process

steps 1-5


Milling Grain

We begin by selecting the best South Carolina-grown corn, rye, wheat, and millet we can get our hands on. All of our grains are milled on-site in our own Millhouse at Flowers Farm in Summerton, South Carolina, then delivered to our King Street Distillery in the heart of downtown Charleston.



Freshly milled grains are added to carbon-filtered water in our steam heated mash tank. The grains cook over several hours to convert their starches to sugar. This new mash is cooled to the perfect temperature to pitch the yeast and begin the fermentation process.



The mash is pumped into one of our glycol-cooled fermenters, where it rests for up to a week. This allows the yeast to eat the sugar created during the mashing process and creates the ethanol alcohol.



Now that fermentation is complete, the mash is pumped into one of our custom copper stills. Designed to completely separate the ethanol from the other compounds in the mash, the stills produce a pure, high proof ethanol base.



We barrel-age certain spirits to draw forth the complexities and uniqueness of their ingredients and personalities. We mature our bourbons in new, American charred white oak barrels, while our Jasper’s Bourbon Barrel Gin spend their time in vintage bourbon barrels to achieve the perfect balance of botanicals and mellow sweetness. Our Rye Whiskey starts in a new American charred white oak barrel and finishes in a Caribbean rum cask to create a harmony of peppery and sweet flavors.
