DURHAM, N.C.— In Summer 2019, Durham Distillery released its third canned cocktail–CONNIPTION Gin Rosé Spritz–made with CONNIPTION American Dry Gin. Taking its inspiration from the classic French 75 cocktail, fruit forward spritzes, summer rose wine season, and the popular pink gin trend, this pink-hued cocktail combines award-winning Conniption American Dry Gin with rose wine, natural strawberry and lemon, house-made simple syrup and club soda.
In keeping with Durham Distillery’s mission to offer premium spirits, the canned cocktail is gluten free with no artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup.

Durham Distillery–known for modern techniques and uncompromised quality–introduced CONNIPTION American Dry Gin upon opening in 2015. In addition to CONNIPTION Navy Strength Gin, CONNIPTION American Dry Gin is among the core distilled spirits at Durham Distillery. These classic gins benefit from a novel two-step process whereby a gin base is produced from a vapor infusion in Durham Distillery’s custom-designed German pot still, lovingly named “Gertrude,” after Melissa’s grandmother. Botanicals such as Indian coriander, caraway, rosemary, and cardamom juxtapose the classic juniper and cassia. Citrus and fresh, sweet accents of citrus and fig are individually vacuum distilled at room temperature, then blended into the gin base, providing an aromatic and bright finish that is simultaneously smooth and powerful.
