Gray Whale Gin Is Making A Difference Protecting Our Oceans
It’s summertime, even if the calendar says summer isn’t officially here yet. We’ve switched from drinking stouts to IPAs and are making lighter cocktails with vodka, gin and tequila in starring roles. Check out this California-made gin that supports ocean conservation.
Gray Whale Gin is a consciously crafted, California-made, spirit inspired by the migratory path of the Gray Whale. The gin is perfected with six botanicals that are sustainably sourced along the majestic creatures’ 12,000 mile journey from Baja all the way to the Arctic; Gray Whale Gin is truly California in a glass. With every purchase, Gray Whale Gin is able to support Ocean conservation through a partnership with Oceana, the world’s largest organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the world’s oceans.
Most recently Gray Whale Gin was notable in affecting legislative change alongside Oceana in banning drift gillnets in California and aiding in the transition to cleaner fishing gear. This ban will save countless large ocean animals, including the California gray whale, dolphins, sea turtles, sharks, seals and other fish.
Additionally, Gray Whale Gin is working with SeaTrees by Sustainable Surf on an initiative to protect the whale habitat by planting mangrove forests in Laguna San Ignacio, Baja – the world’s last undeveloped California gray whale breeding lagoon.
You can find Gray Whale Gin in brick and mortar stores and via Reserve Bar, Caskers and Drizly. $RRP 40
