Isolation Proof was born in 2020 in a wooden barn in the Western Catskills. It began as our desire to make a sustainable product that we could touch, smell, taste — and most importantly — share. We started making gin and never looked back.
We set out to make the kind of gin that we wanted to drink: a no-nonsense, spirit-forward cross between a London Dry and New American style gin. Isolation Proof is earthy and spicy, with a backbone of sweetness from organic licorice and orange peel, and a signature peppery finish from cubeb. It’s versatile in cocktails and extraordinarily sippable by itself.
Our production process is intentionally low intervention (no chill filtering, etc.) We love the natural minerality that comes through in our spring water, and the temperature fluctuations that occur in our uninsulated barn. The result of working with these conditions is a living, breathing gin that reflects the time, place, and conditions under which it was made.
