Frey Ranch Estate Distillery: T.G.I.F. for July 15

Colby and Ashley Frey are Frey Ranch Estate Distillery.  Frey distills and bottles their hand-crafted spirits at the historic Frey Ranch in Fallon, Nevada.  However, this is not the summation of their only entrepreneurial endeavors, as there are so many!

Frey Ranch Estate Distillery They plant, grow and harvest a nice variety of crops, to include corn, alfalfa, wheat and barley.  They also grow grapes for the six distinguished wines.  Oh, there's more.  There is so much more that goes on at this establishment!

Finally, we would be remiss if we did not mention the PR-ease of dealing with a company like Frey.  The package that was sent contained germane literature, a hand-written postcard and a beautifully rustic wooden box with two bottles.  The bottles/decanters are beautiful too.


  • (1) Gin (90 Proof)
  • (1) Vodka (80 Proof)


The nose is complex.  It is primarily spicey and secondarily citrusy.  Pepper presents mid-palate.  The finish is of lemon and/or orange.  This is probably the fifth or sixth bottle of gin that we've ever had in our entire life.  We now know what juniper tastes like.  This explains the earthy smell and flavor.  However, earthy is minimal here.  We really like the citric presence of this clear, award-winning, full-bodied spirit.

The nose is stout.  All ethanol.  The taste is strong too.  Subtle though.  Smooth,  textured, full-bodied and complex.  Gold winner at the 2016 Tastings Spirits Competition and other awards.
