Our Spirits

Both Star Keeper Gin and Vapid Vodka are distilled entirely from clementines grown on local farms. Thus, they are entirely grain/gluten-free. Because our process celebrates, rather than masks, the nature of their fruit source, both spirits boast a silkier texture, a longer finish, and more durable flavor in mixed drinks.

All gins start with a base spirit. Typically, it is grain-based and industrially manufactured to be as flavorless as possible. Astral Pacific Gin's base spirit is made from clementines, and is purpose distilled to subtly retain some of the character of its source fruit. With a silky texture and a slight lingering sweetness, its proprietary distillate allows our head distiller to compose a gin with structure, a longer finish, and greater definition of component flavors. It is a gin in the classic style, while welcoming some novel flavors to the mix.

-Pink peppercorn (native to Southern California) and pistachio compliment quintessential gin botanicals such as juniper, coriander, cinnamon, and angelica. To achieve a warmth and balance, two varieties of juniper are used: both juniperus communis and its earthier, local cousin, juniperus californica.

-The nose is balsalmy, full, and juniper-forward. Spicy notes of pink peppercorn carry across the tongue, yielding to a bright citrus finish.

Vodka is, by definition, neutral. This usually translates as colorless, odorless, and devoid of character. However, when this traditionally vapid spirit is distilled entirely from a base of clementines, it cannot help but reveal its sunny heritage.

-Vapid Vodka has a fuller body, a soft texture, and a clean, subtle sweetness.

-On the nose, it is enticingly fruity, with notes of vanilla custard. The finish is smooth, with a trace of citrus lending structure.
