“You Can Have So Much Fun Distilling, It’s A Very Creative Platform Upon Which To Innovate. ” Said Founder Joe Heron. “Gin Is Not Really Our Thing, Truthfully. But We Have Experimented Occasionally, And This Turned Out Really Fantastically. And Is Also Very Unusual For A Gin In Terms Of Cloudy Appearance And Creamy Mouth-Feel. The Apple-Brandy Base Gives A Natural “Old Tom” Style Profile, And One Barrel In A Cellar Is Essentially A Stray – So We Called It The Stray Cat. We Also Have A Very Strong Affection For Brian Setzer.”

“We Don’t Dabble At Distilling. For Us To Release A Gin It Needed To Be Exceptional, Something That Reflects What We Do With Our American Brandy And Absinthe, Something Unique That We Can Be Very, Very Proud Of. This Is Spectacular, It’s A Ballsy, Confident, Independent Feline Of A Gin.” Says Brandon O’daniel, Head Distiller At Copper & Kings.
