Cemetery Gin

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. Things haven’t changed much and, today, Cemetery Gin is rightly named.

History reports that during the mining boom, death was a frequent visitor with nearly one funeral a day. It was a tough time made better by the likes of whiskey, scotch and gin.

Made with Nevada ingredients, our Silver Medal from the World Spirits Competition proves our homegrown spirit is much better than the swill of the early miners. It’s distilled with Juniper Berries, Nevada Pine Nuts, Coriander, Cardamom, Angelica Root, Orange and Lemon Peel.

Our gin is all Nevada and is available at many Virginia City saloons and bars, as well as the Visitors Center in town.

Commemorate your time on the Comstock by purchasing a bottle of Cemetery Gin to take home or as a gift.

Cemetery Gin is available at locations throughout Northern Nevada and we’re working on agreements to have it delivered directly to your doorstep later in 2023.
