Deacon Giles was fully operational and open on weekends to the public at the end of October, but I didn’t have a chance to visit them again until today. Everything looked great. I could not be happier for founders Ian and Jesse.
There were glasses on the table with aromatic samples of the herbs and spices that went into the gin. I’m not sure if I can remember them all, but I remember: juniper, lemon peel, orange peel, cardamom pods, angelica root, rosehips, and mace.

Deacon Giles rum and gin are slowly making their way into Greater Boston. So far, they have a decent distribution around the North Shore area.
If you ever visit Salem, MA, I highly recommend visiting the distillery too!
