UNCRATE

“Amass works with independent craft distillers to get their product to market, and used 29 botanicals — from dried to fresh — that are sourced from all over the globe.”

 

ROBB REPORT

“Made with 29 botanicals, many of them sourced from the Golden State, the gin leads with a bright burst of citrus flavor that is quickly tempered by spicy notes of cardamom and a tinge of sarsaparilla root bitterness, with a little a mushroom funk on the finish.”

 

WALLPAPER

“When it comes to gin, the US isn’t historically as well versed compared to its transatlantic counterparts. However, a new distillery from downtown Los Angeles is turning past conceptions upside down.”

“The first release from AMASS, which bills itself as a “nomadic distillery” that collaborates with independent craft spirit makers from around the world, is Los Angeles Dry Gin.”

COOL HUNTING

“…there’s an interesting plan at work here; Amass can create strong brand recognition and be ever-changing. Plus, pinning a spirit to an individual city, to one distiller in particular, allows consumers to branch out with ease.”

 

CHILLED MAGAZINE

“This easy-to-mix recipe features a dry gin from Los Angeles, along with lime and rosemary to accentuate the gin’s flavors.”

GEAR PATROL

“That long list is dominated by the force of few — namely, citrus peel and cardamom — which means this gin is best sipped straight or on the rocks, rather than buried in a cocktail."

INTERIOR DESIGN

“Yet a handful of strategic design elements, namely its sleek matte black finish, clear textual hierarchy, and pleasantly-kerned font, make it perfectly understandable if you just can't look away.”

 

TASTING PANEL

“On the palate, revelatory flavors of red and blue flowers, salted lime and wild cherry glide in on a satiny texture. It paints colors with its perfume.”

 


WINE ENTHUSIAST

”There's a lot going on in this gin, made with a mix of 29 botanicals, including California grapefruit, California bay leaf and a duo of mushrooms. Yet somehow, it all comes together…”

 

MAXIM, MARCH 2019 ISSUE

“The citrus notes reference L.A.’s bygone years as a massive orange orchard, and the more exotic botanicals reflect the city’s profound polychromatic multiculturalism.”

 

INSIDER

“Bidmead said he likes to make his gin martinis with 1 1/2 ounces of Amass gin to equal parts Lillet, an aromatized wine, as a substitute for sweet vermouth. He said he garnishes the drink with an olive and a lemon twist.”

“AMASS distillery decided to ditch the brick-and-mortar model and take its brand on the road, becoming the world’s first nomadic distillery. “Being a nomadic distillery gives us freedom,” says founder and CEO Mark Lynn. “We can work with the best independent craft distillers from cities all over the world.””
