Caraluzzi's Wine & Spirits is your destination for spirits. Check out our selection of gins including some local favorites and new additions. We have London Dry, Plymouth, Old Tom, and some modern twists on old varieties.

Styles of Gin


A distilled gin originating in England whose main flavor must come from juniper. No other color, flavors or artificial ingredients can be added. Most London Dry Gin producers bottle their gin at a high proof.


More mellow and distinctly less juniper-forward than London Dry, however, the alcohol content of the distillate is 57 percent alcohol by volume . While distillers can produce most gin types, Plymouth Gin Distillery in England is the only distillery with the right to produce this type of gin.


An older style of gin that has a rich, malty mouthfeel and a distinct citrusy sweetness, Old Tom Gin is sometimes aged in casks or barrels.

The Botanist Islay Dry

The Botonist

World's Only Islay Dry Gin

Made using an astounding 31 (22 from Islay) different botanicals, this is the world's first and only Islay Dry Gin. The nose is an explosion of robust botanicals, including apple, mint, honey, lemon, orange, pomegranate and juniper. The initial taste is mellow and tame, but is quickly followed by bursts of citrus and spices that ultimately lead to a satisfying finish.

Litchfield Distillery

Litchfield Distillery


Litchfield Distillery in Bantam, Connecticut uses select botanicals, masterfully balanced to create their Batchers’ Gin. This local gin is slightly on the sweet side, however still retains a classic juniper signature with citrus overtones. The result is a very smooth spirit with an evolving, crisp finish. It’s martini-grade; serve it neat or in mixed drinks. Bottled at 86 proof.

Brockmans Gin


Intensely smooth

Brockmans is like no other gin. For gin enthusiasts it is a revelation, for gin novices it is about discovering an unexpected individual taste. The more traditional notes of gin are combined with a refreshing influence of citrus and aromatic wild blackberries and blueberries. This creates an intensely smooth gin taste that is sensual and daringly different.

Barr Hill from Vermont

Barr Hill

Raw Honey for a hint of sweetness

Barr Hill Gin, made in Vermont, has perfected the use of raw honey in the distillery, capturing the countless botanicals foraged by honey bees into a bottle of gin. The juniper-forward botanicals are brought to a perfect balance by the floral depth of the raw honey. The results of this Old Tom style gin are distinctive and unparalleled because the local honey in Vermont takes on seasonal flavors based on what flowers the bees are sipping from.

Empress 1908

Empress 1908

Unique blue color

A unique gin that pairs traditional juniper notes of a London Dry with a modern flavor profile, Empress 1908 has a distinct indigo hue. The hue changes to bright lavender, soft pink, or fuchsia depending on the mix. Handcrafted in small batch copper-pot stills, Empress 1908 is inspired by the legendary Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia. On top of traditional botanicals, a signature blend of black tea served at the Empress Hotel is added.


Gray Whale

California made

Aromas of citrus carry you north, followed by juniper and a subtle hint of cool coastal fir trees. As you move further up the path, fresh mint and the umami flavors of kombu sea kelp are rounded out by a beautiful lasting creamy almond finish. Made in California.

Hendricks Gin


Infused with rose and cucumber

Hendrick's is an unusual gin created from eleven fine botanicals. The curious, yet marvelous, infusions of rose & cucumber imbue the spirit with its uniquely balanced flavor resulting in an impeccably smooth distinct gin.
