Official Spirit of Virginia City
Guaranteed to embalm you… While you’re still breathing
In 1859 it was said the only way to safely drink the water in Virginia City was to mix it with two parts gin. Our local, estate distilled spirit is laced with Nevada pine nut and is much better tasting than the swill of the early miners. Cemetery Gin is rightly named. During the mining boom, death was a frequent visitor with nearly one funeral a day. It was a tough time made better by whiskey, scotch and gin.
Cemetery Gin is our blend of gin made with all Nevada grown ingredients and it won the Silver Medal in the World Spirits Competition in 2017. It’s distilled with Juniper Berries, Nevada Pine Nuts, Coriander, Cardamom, Angelica Root, Orange and Lemon Peel.
Commemorate your time on the Comstock with a bottle of Cemetery Gin. Our gin is all Nevada made and produced; distilled and bottled by Comstock Distiller’s LLC out of Reno, Nevada and distributed to Virginia City local watering holes and a number of locations in northern Nevada.
