Our estate journey begins in the Bently Heritage backyard: the peaks, valleys, and plains of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Owner Christopher Bently, Master Distiller John Jeffery, and Distiller Ryan Quinlan have extensively explored the Sierras and its surroundings, foraging and experiencing the sensory worlds of each local ecosystem.
Our first fully-forged expression was conceived from the scent of resin in the air emanating from the piñyon pine forests behind Bently Ranch. The final result of this inspiration is our Alpine Gin, which combines our Atrium gin with a distillate made from piñyon pinecones hand-collected in those same high-altitude forests. Getting from inspiration to end product, however, is an extensive process.
