Tuthilltown Spirits Half Moon Orchard Gin, named for the vessel in which Henry Hudson first explored the River, which now bears his name. In that same spirit of exploration, we have created a new base of near neutral spirit from both Wheat and the Hudson Valley‚Äôs ubiquitous Apples. ‚ÄúWe‚Äôre in the heart of the American apple industry so it‚Äôs natural for us to turn to apples to create an original New York gin‚Äù. The distinctive subtleties of the apple blend in the base spirit create a smoother and rounder gin, more drinkable than the standard grain neutral spirit base used in other gins. Halfmoon Orchard Gin has an ABV of 46%. The 1 liter bottle is priced to become the preferred ‚Äúwell‚Äù gin by bartenders in New York State and nationwide.
