Introducing Low Gap
Low Gap is a collaboration between distiller Crispin Cain (Germain-Robin absinthe, Crispin’s Rose liqueur) and Ansley Coale of Craft Distillers. Crispin apprenticed for seven years with Hubert Germain-Robin, then founded Greenway Distillery in 2005.
Crispin has been experimenting with whiskey for years. Production of Low Gap began in 2010, using space leased in the Germain-Robin distillery. The small cognac stills at Germain-Robin are superb pieces of equipment, and Crispin Cain is a master at extracting soft, clean, rich, pure, and wondrously flavorful whiskeys with them. The quality of the initial distillations was so good that it was released as a clear (unaged) whiskey, which Malt Advocate Magazine named Artisan Whiskey of 2012.
