We invite you to explore the vibrant personalities of our spirits, each with a story distilled to perfection.
High Desert Gin

Experience the spirit of the Wild West in every sip with VARA’s High Desert Gin. Starting with a grape-based high spirit, we use thirteen distinct botanicals to craft an award winning flavor profile that captures the essence of New Mexico.

On the nose, this gin greets you with notes of juniper, followed by underlying aromas of anise, citrus, sage, and a creamy nuttiness. Initial sips reveal bright citrus notes and a hint of coriander. It has a clean, rounded mouthfeel and a very smooth finish.

Serving Suggestions

This gin is elegant, balanced, and exceedingly refreshing. It’s a natural for any Collins, Gimlet, or Fizz variation, or try it in your favorite Gin and Tonic recipe. We enjoy it in a Vesper Martini. Adding an ice cube or a few drops of water brings out the florals, making it perfect for sipping.
