Founder and third-generation distiller, Ben Capdevielle, began distilling gin as a hobby with his father, “Big Jim.” After ten years behind bars and in kitchens, Ben started making Big Gin® , aptly named after his father's nickname. In addition to the London Dry-style Big Gin, other well noted barreled renditions are also available.
Distilled in Seattle, Washington the juniper-forward gin comes to life in three 100-gallon Vendome pot stills named Phyllis and Jean, and most recently Bobbe was added. The distillery moved in 2017 to the new home in the Coastal Transportations shipyard. Our new address is 1138 Ewing Street Suite C Seattle, WA 98119.
In July 2018, the Flagship Distillery & Tasting Room officially opened. Hours are Thursday through Sunday, 2 pm - 8 pm.
