No 209 Gin Ou
No 209 Gin Ou is a surprising elder statesman among American gins. First produced in 2005, the distillery whose license was first awarded to a Mr. Scheffler in 1882, now sits in the famous San Francisco Bay. Distillery No. 209 restored the history from Scheffler’s original Edge Hill site and now produces a line of gins including their flagship No. 209 Gin, as well as several barrel aged and kosher variants.
No 209 Gin Ou is pot distilled from a base spirit of corn. The botanicals are macerated over night before the final (and fifth distillation); though the distillery plays a bit secret with the exact number

The original 209 spirits were made in the 1880s at a distillery on the Edge Hill wine estate. Over a century later (in 2000), Leslie Rudd found the old distillery building after buying the estate and was inspired to build a new distillery and create a new No. 209 Gin.
