Jack Rabbit Gin

Welcome Jack Rabbit Gin! The first legal gin in Utah in 140 years was totally worth waiting for.  Distilled and bottled at Beehive’s Salt Lake City distillery, Jack Rabbit Gin is produced in small batches to ensure each bottle contains the perfect amount of natural ingredients, including juniper berries, lemon peel, sage leaves, coriander seeds, orris root, grain of paradise and rose petals. 

“Our gin is the hand-crafted result of extensive recipe tweaks and numerous taste tests,” says Chris Barlow, partner, Beehive Distilling. “It’s a complex blend of seven slow-steeped botanical, with juniper as the cornerstone and sage and rose petals for balance.”

“We’re confident that Jack Rabbit’s bold taste and smooth floral finish will resonate with gin lovers and casual drinkers alike,” said Barlow. 

Beehive Distilling was launched in 2013 by Matt Aller, Chris Barlow and Erik Ostling—three Salt Lakers with shared passions for design, photography and spirits. For more information, cocktail recipes and a list of Utah establishments serving Jack Rabbit Gin, visit

I don't have the patience for fancy cocktails so I've been happily drinking this gin with ruby red grapefruit juice. It's gorgeously fragrant and tastes like summer. This will surely be a bar staple, and I'm sure I'll make complicated cocktails, or at least 100 martinis with it this summer.
