Wild Gin, Stray Dog

Wild Gin, Stray Dog

Stray Dog Gin strives to celebrate the longstanding history and culture of Greek distilling and foraging in exceptionally well-made spirits. Its terroir-driven production calls for using wild ingredients wherever possible, spring water from the mountains near the distillery, and juniper berries sourced from nearby farmers. Master Distiller, Dimitris Melissanidis, is a 3rdgeneration distiller whose family has traditionally produced Tsipouro, Ouzo, and other historic Greek liqueurs. When he took over the family operation, he began to experiment with gin. Around the same time, Dimitris met Stray Dog’s founder, Johnny Livanos. Together, these two share a passion for Greek spirits and culture, and are excited to showcase the flavor of Greece in a new and modern way.

Tasting Notes

Produced in Thessaloniki, Greece, Stray Dog Wild Gin is made with the country’s finest wild botanicals: sage, fennel seed, rosemary, mastiha, and bay leaf, along with lemon, orange, cardamom, juniper, and coriander. This signature recipe lends a distinctly herbal and savory character to the gin which so beautifully reflects its country of origin. Additionally, a portion of Stray Dog’s proceeds are given to a local Greek charity called Save a Greek Stray that provides food, veterinary care, and homes for stray animals. 43.5% ABV
