K J Wood Distillers,LLC is the dream of K John Wood that began taking shape in 2010. During many years as a Home Brewer and Home Wine maker John realized that the next natural step was to develop a business out of his quiet passion for fine craft beverages. Spending 2 years developing his spirit brands, John fired up the distillery in 2013. Thus with Colorado Whiskey and Heritage Gin recipes, K J Wood Distillers, LLC was born.
We are up and running. Jinn Gin is now available online!
Through the mist of time we know the 9th century alchemist ‘Rhazes’ codified distillation and coined the term al-koh’l. This word meaning both intoxication and Jinn (genie) gave rise to the “spirit” in Aladdin’s Wonderful Lamp from the Thousand and One Nights!
As al-koh’l rise from the Alembic still in our distillery so too Jinn rise from her bottle, with lavender to lull you, spices to enthrall you, and citrus notes to awaken your spirit!
We hope you enjoy this ephemeral liquid!…Responsibly of course!
Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.
