Origins


Bimini Gin, like its namesake islands in the Bahamas, is a bit of tropical sunshine just off your shore. The closest Caribbean island to the United States, it's long been a haven for pirates and bootleggers, a destination for sportfishermen and treasure hunters, and an escape for writers and artists.

Modern


Bimini is a modern American gin. While older traditional gins have their place, tastes have changed since the 19th century when many of their recipes were formulated. Bimini breaks away from tradition. It’s not a complex recipe with fancy exotic ingredients you’ve never heard of; Bimini Gin is handcrafted using a few familiar key botanicals— grapefruit zest, hops, coriander seed—that taste bright and citrusy with a beautiful floral aroma that you’ll continue to savor after the glass is empty. Bimini was made to taste good on a warm sunny day. Period.

Flavor


All gin uses juniper as its primary botanical flavoring; Bimini Gin uses it differently. Juniper berries are often blamed for the “pine tree” taste that turns many people away from gin altogether. By using a more modern distillation process, the Bimini distillers are able to separate out juniper’s piney flavors and only extract the more floral and fruity notes that harmonize beautifully with the other botanical ingredients. The result is a fragrant, smooth tasting gin that is perfectly drinkable neat or with ice, or enhanced in a cocktail.

Bimini Special


We recommend the Bimini Special, a recipe inspired by a drink in the Ernest Hemingway novel, “Islands in the Stream.” Set amidst the white sands and tall coconut palms of the island of Bimini in the 1930s, relaxing after a day of marlin fishing the protagonist sips a “tall cold drink made of gin, lime juice, green coconut water, and chipped ice with just enough Angostura bitters to give it a rusty, rose color.”
