Waterpocket® Distillery is proud to announce the release of Temple of the Moon gin, the latest addition to the Waterpocket® House Spirit line.

Affectionately named for the iconic monolith formation in Capitol Reef National Park’s Cathedral Valley, this juniper-forward, London dry style gin offers an impeccable blend of botanicals with uniquely complex aromatic qualities derived from a fusion of Italian juniper, coriander, true cinnamon, fennel, lemon peel, ginger, galangal, zedoary, roman chamomile and lavender.

With its bold yet balanced flavor, Temple of the Moon gin is reminiscent of its Waterpocket® predecessors, including Long Lost® botanical spirits, Toadstool® amaros and Snow Angel Kümmel. All Waterpocket® House Spirits, Long Lost® spirits and Toadstool® spirits are distilled and bottled in Utah. The Waterpocket® motto is Open Wild,® and this gin lives up to that spirit of adventure.

Batch one of Temple of the Moon gin is available now for purchase at the Waterpocket® Distillery package store, located at 2084 West 2200 South in West Valley City, UT. The retail price is $24.99 per 750ml bottle.
