Discovery doesn't happen when you're standing still

Stray Dog Wild Gin started with a challenge: is it possible to bottle a moment? Not just any moment, but one that captures the spontaneous and free spirit of Greece. Where an unexpected turn off an island road leads to a secret beach. Or wandering through the cobblestone streets of Athens until sunrise reminds you that some nights can never be planned, you can only let them happen.

The idea for Stray Dog Wild Gin came about in such a moment. Inspired by an off-road exploration through the mountains of northern Greece, I set to work alongside master distiller Dimitris Melissanidis to find the perfect combination of wild-foraged botanicals, Mediterranean citrus, and Aridea spring water to capture the essence of the untamed life.

Hand-crafted in small batches using traditional copper pot stills, Stray Dog Wild Gin embodies what happens when we allow ourselves to let life unfold, and to appreciate the time and the beauty that is right in front of us.
