    Jasper's

    gin

    This farm-raised American-style gin tastes of its place and the care with which it's made – from the finest locally harvested grains, hand-selected botanicals, and the incomparable juniper berry. This is the gin tonic aspires to.

our process

steps 1-5

1.

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.

2.

Mashing

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.

3.

Fermenting

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.

4.

Distilling

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.

5.

Maturation

We barrel-age our 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.
