Los Poblanos Botanical Spirits

A Tradition of Distillation

Los Poblanos has been growing and distilling botanicals on our historic farm in the Village of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque for over two decades. Our passion for distillation began with lavender essential oil and botanical hydrosols for artisan spa products and grew to include our culinary and cocktail programs. 

Crafted by a team of dedicated farmers, gardeners, herbalists, distillers and mixologists, our new western-style gins draw on ancient steam distillation techniques in alembic copper stills. Each botanical blend expresses the flavor of Los Poblanos’ historic farm and gardens, and the essence of the Rio Grande Valley. 

Our Gin

Recognized by USA Today as one of the top ten craft gins in the country, our new-western-style botanical gin is exceptionally smooth with a velvety texture, floral nose and complex blend of earthy and spicy notes. New western-style gin is known for fresh, balanced botanical blends, moving the familiar juniper flavor associated with gin into a supporting role. This approachable style appeals to gin lovers and newcomers alike. Our Western Dry and Lavender gins are truly place-based spirits, capturing the essence of our historic farm and gardens, and New Mexico’s Rio Grande Valley.

Western Dry Gin

Our Western Dry features sixteen botanicals that express the spirit of the Rio Grande Valley and thrive on our small organic farm. Our farm, garden and spirits team researched and cataloged botanicals growing across the historic property to develop this singular recipe. Notes of rose, hawthorn, chamomile and piñon resin present equally alongside classic juniper to create a gin with a distinct sense of place. This gin is ideal for many botanical-forward cocktails and well-suited for sipping over a large cube.

Lavender Gin

Distilled with four distinct cultivars, our Lavender Gin expresses the floral complexity of our favorite botanical. This is the only gin on the market that uses Royal Velvet, Provence, Munstead and Buena Vista lavender in the distillation process – with no flavors added after the fact, for a pure botanical experience. Lavender is supported by additional botanicals including viola, orange, rose and lemongrass for a balanced bouquet. Sip and relax as lavender’s soothing and aromatic properties crescendo with rounded floral notes that soften into a delicate finish.

Los Poblanos is dedicated to la vida generosa, or, the generous life, a philosophy embodied in the decorative tile designed by the famed New Mexico architect, John Gaw Meem, for the farm in 1934. Artwork representing San Ysidro, the Patron Saint of Farmers, appears across the farm, throughout the historic buildings and on our gin bottles to represent the synergy between a thoughtful farmer and what the soil offers in return.

Los Poblanos Botanical Spirits are available online, at The Farm ShopTown and Ranch, Farm Shop Norte and purveyors around New Mexico.


Our Western Dry Gin is a versatile botanical blend suited for use in a wide range of cocktails. The nuanced flavor is best appreciated in a martini or with a splash of soda water with a lemon twist.
