NOTORIOUS SWASHBUCKLER CLEO LYTHGOE IS LEGENDARY FOR HER EXPLOITS OF SUPPLYING BOOTLEGGED LIQUOR TO DEPRIVED AMERICANS DURING PROHIBITION.  HER BEAUTY WAS MATCHED BY HER WIT AND WILLINGNESS TO DO WHAT IT TOOK TO AVOID THE LAW WHILE RUNNING A SMUGGLING EMPIRE.  CLEO GIN IS A CELEBRATION OF HER PASSION AND PROWESS.  LIKE CLEO, OUR GIN EXUDES PERSONALITY.  EACH HANDCRAFTED BATCH IS A WELL-BALANCED AMALGAMATION OF BOTANICALS.  PREDOMINANT JUNIPER IS TEMPERED WITH NOTES OF BLOOD ORANGE CITRUS, CHAMOMILE, HERBAL NOTES OF HYSSOP AND MEADOWSWEET, A HINT OF SPEARMINT, AND ROUNDED OUT WITH A TOUCH OF SWEETNESS.  WE HOPE CLEO'S STORY CONTINUES TO BE AS MUCH AN INSPIRATION TO YOU AS SHE IS TO US.
