It will put a little twinkle in your eye and satisfy the tastebuds of those who like a good spirit. Gray Whale Gin is a small batch, consciously crafted, gin from California, and has taken the nickname "California in a Glass."

Jan and Marsh Mokhtari founded Gray Whale Gin in 2016 on the notion that a spirit can bring people together and also give back to the environment. While on a camping trip in Big Sur, with their two daughters, Jan and Marsh gazed across the turquoise ocean to admire the beauty of the California coast and spotted a gray whale and her calf on their northern migration. At that very moment, the idea for Gray Whale Gin was born.

Each of the botanicals are either hand foraged along the migratory path of the California Gray Whale or sustainably sourced from organic farms. Botanicals include Juniper (Big Sur), kombu (Mendocino Coast), almonds (Capay Valley), Limes (Baja California), fir tree (Sonoma), and mint (Santa Cruz).

Proceeds from sales benefit Oceana to protect and preserve the world's oceans.
