Quick Overview

Family operated in Seattle, Washington.

Launched in March 2012, Big Gin is the first product from Ballard-based distillery Captive Spirits (just outside Seattle). Allegedly the name came from both the flavour profile of the gin as well as distiller Ben Capdevielle's nickname for his dad, Big Jim, a craft distiller in Wisconsin.

Captive Spirits Distilling sold it's first bottle in February 2011. Ben Capdevielle, founder & distiller, began distilling as a hobby with his father, Jim. Jim had learned how to distill from his father, Ted. Hence, a legacy was born, where Ben took it from a hobby to a job. After 10 years behind bars & kitchens, he started making Big Gin, named aptly from his father's nickname of "Big Jim."

Nine botanicals (juniper, coriander, bitter orange peel, grains of paradise, angelica, cassia, cardamom, orris, Tasmanian pepper berry), Big Gin has a relatively traditional lineup. To the nose there is a definitive aroma of juniper, accompanied by peppery spice. To taste, the name says it all. BIG GIN is big on the juniper. There is also a lot of spice too – pepper, angelica and grains of paradise all follow a slightly waxy juniper note. This is big, bold gin.
