Belfast has famously created many things, from mighty ships to delicate linens. However, there is another, perhaps less well-known gift our city has given the world: zesty, refreshing ginger ale. Yes, it was invented here. And it’s perfect with our gin. You’re welcome.
So, why the name? Jawbox is local slang for a familiar household item – the classic deep, square kitchen sink. The Belfast sink. A lot of talk, gossip, chat and craic went on around the Jawbox. That made it the perfect fit for our gin.
Jawbox is a classic dry gin made in a traditional distillery set in a wooded estate just outside the city. We distill in small batches using time-honoured methods – plus a unique combination of botanicals, including our local Belfast Black Mountain heather. And we take our time.
