TD Artisan Spirits Adds New York’s Greenhook Ginsmiths to Portfolio

April 10 2017

Lake Bluff, Ill. April 10, 2017 — TD Artisan Spirits, a joint venture between Terlato Artisan Spirits and Distell USA, today announced the addition of Greenhook Ginsmiths to its growing portfolio of luxury artisan spirits, marking the beginning of the brand’s national expansion.

Founded in 2012 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, by brothers Steven and Philip DeAngelo, Greenhook has become a darling of home gin enthusiasts and the craft bartending community alike throughout New York and the surrounding area.  All three expressions have earned 90+ reviews from top spirits publications.

Greenhook Ginsmiths’ line of American craft gin includes three fresh, contemporary takes on traditional gin styles:

●       American Dry Gin, a modern spin on London Dry Gin (47% ABV): intensely aromatic and botanical-forward, thanks to the low-temperature vacuum distillation process that preserves the taste and scent integrity of its floral and citrus components

●       Old Tom Gin, an 18th century–style gin aged in oak barrels (50% ABV): influenced by the rich, warm flavors of the British spice trade in the Far East

●       Beach Plum Gin Liqueur, a regional homage to sloe gin, made from beach plums grown on Long Island’s East End (30% ABV): macerated for more than six months, with floral and berry notes and a rich mouthfeel

“We wanted to create a gin that was distinctive, with a true expression of each ingredient. Balance was key,” said Greenhook co-creator Steven DeAngelo.  “We’re excited to grow Greenhook Ginsmiths with TD Artisan Spirits, and we’re proud to be part of their portfolio.”

“Steven and Philip DeAngelo have created a collection of truly distinctive and delicious gins with beautiful and eye-catching packaging,” said TD Artisan Spirits CEO Bill Terlato. They share our family’s deep commitment to exceptional quality, and we look forward to creating greater awareness for their truly hand-crafted products.”

COO David Ballew says Greenhook Gin has a strong place in the world of mixology, and he’s eager to help roll out these New York–made artisan gins to the rest of the country.  “We look for brands that will really resonate with the people who consume them. Greenhook is creating world-class gin, and we’re proud to add them to our portfolio,” Ballew said.
