Owned and operated by distillers Matt Sweeny and Jason Somerby, both of whom have PhDs, the idea for New Alchemy was conceived in the research laboratory where the two founders first met. The neutral spirit used in the gins and the vodka are distilled in-house from local wine. The botanicals in the gins are hand sorted, weighed, ground and then precisely extracted by vapor-path distillation using a unique still they designed and built. The vodka undergoes a proprietary technique to further purify the spirit until it is bright and crisp.
The Arborist Gin is vapor-path distilled to maintain the favorite qualities of traditional gin while exploring the nuances of contemporary tastes. By using fourteen different botanicals, a layered palate with light juniper on top, followed by bright citrus and spice notes, is concluded with a clean, peppery finish. The Arborist Gin’s robust profile performs well in strongly-flavored cocktails such as those with tonic or ginger, as well as in lighter drinks and has been recognized as a premier spirit in competition.
