Rainier Brewing Company was born in 1878, and has been synonymous with Seattle since before Washington was even a state. After 140 years of brewing beer, blazing trails and tracking the mythic Wild Rainiers, Rainier will launch Rainier Mountain Fresh Gin this September. Its Rainier’s first non-beer innovation since the Lime Rickey, a prohibition era created lime soda, designed to mix with whatever adventurous drinkers could source.
Naturally for a brewing company that has spent more than a century extolling and enjoying the virtue of the great outdoors, while telling a few tall stories around a campfire or two, Rainier Mountain Fresh Gin had to be a true Northwest-style spirit. Crafted in small batches in Seattle, it’s inspired by the forests of Mount Rainier, crystal clear and distilled with huckleberry, spruce and juniper, all of which can be found in the lush forests at the mountain’s base.
While not everyone can summit Mount Rainier or even sight one of the famed Wild Rainiers, the call of the wild and nature’s beauty and bounty are universal. So when you’re needing some refreshment after an afternoon spent dock jumping, hunting for sasquatch or just getting lost in the woods, Rainier can be counted on to serve up a delicious taste of the outdoors.
Rainier Mountain Fresh Gin is 80 proof and 40% ABV, it’s available in 750 ml bottles throughout Washington this September, and coming shortly to Oregon. Consumers can order directly through Drizly. This Fall enjoy it as a Rainier Rickey, with just a squeeze of fresh lime, topped with club soda, and served on the rocks.
