The brainchild of Belfast-barman, Gerry White, Jawbox Small Batch Gin is named in honour of the ever-celebrated Belfast sink, colloquially known as the 'Jawbox'.

The heart of the kitchen, the big sink, was where the craic was heard and unforgettable stories were shared. Inspired by the magnificent industrial era of Northern Irish history when ordinary men and women put Belfast on the map for hard graft and craft, Jawbox is a modern expression of this traditional, impressive and uncompromising character.

The Ards Peninsula, Co. Down is home to both The Jawbox Distillery and the fields where its grain is grown and harvested. It is here where things are done the hard way, for the right reasons.

Distilled very slowly in a traditional copper pot still for the best quality spirit, eleven botanicals are steeped overnight in the warmed spirit releasing their maximum influence. While most of the botanicals are 'steep and boil', three of the botanicals use the vapour extraction method to preserve their delicate flavour and aroma.

Jawbox Gin is distributed in the UK by Drinksology Kirker Greer.

Jawbox Pineapple & Ginger Can

On the nose, Jawbox is an impressive experience of bold juniper and pine, balanced with a gentle touch of sweet coriander and clean citrus. More complex on the palate, citrus and juniper develop into peppery, earthy Angelica root, finishing with citrus and lingering juniper and pine.

The preferred Jawbox serve calls on a Belfast–invented accompaniment, ginger ale. To enjoy the Perfect Swerve, pour 35ml Jawbox into an ice–filled glass, topping up with premium Ginger Ale and garnishing with a wedge of lime.
