The revival of ‘Registered Distillery 209’ has long been the vision of food and wine entrepreneur Leslie Rudd. The Distillery 209 team is led by the belief that smaller distillery companies like “Distillery No. 209” have a role to play in bringing innovative products, new ideas and fresh enthusiasm to the distilled spirits industry. The passion that started this revival has now passed to Samantha Rudd, Leslie’s daughter, the current owner and operator of Distillery No. 209.
Everything at Distillery No. 209 is crafted with only the highest quality in mind, nothing less. Gin has never stood still and the research for No. 209 Gin held to this ideology in crafting a new offering. The spirit started as a very heavily flavored, sometimes rough spirit, and it was for a time almost excessively sweet, then very dry and ‘junipery.’ Leslie’s team has expertly taken the juniper berry heritage a step further by fusing it with citrus, exotic fruits, and spices.
