Bronze medal, 2018 American Distilling Institute Craft Spirits Awards 

Hard Truth Gin is a citrus-forward presentation of the classic spirit, handcrafted on our 100% wheat vodka base with a generous amount of fresh citrus fruit and light juniper. Refreshing and accessible, this spirit is pleasant to drink its own while providing a bright, citrus pop to cocktails.

This Hard Truth is best served in a gin and tonic with a pinch of salt, in a gimlet with lime juice and sugar, or over the rocks with a hearty squeeze of lime.
