Official Spirit of Virginia City - Cemetery Gin

"Guaranteed to embalm you... While you're still breathing"

CemeteryGin LogoIn 1859 it was said the only way to safely drink the water in Virginia City was to mix it with two parts gin. Our bottled local brew, laced with lavender and Nevada pine nut, is much better in taste and quality than the swill of the early miners. Along with gin, death was a frequent visitor in Virginia City with nearly one funeral a day. In our "salute" to the largely Irish population we give you Cemetery Gin endorsed by the undertaker's union and guaranteed to embalm you while you are still breathing. 

Commemorate your time on the Comstock with reimagined Cemetery Gin. Our Gin is all Nevada made and produced; distilled and bottled by Frey Ranch out of Fallon, NV. Distirbuted to Virginia City local watering holes through Southern Wine and Spirits.
