Made with ingredients sourced directly from local, organic Midwestern farmers, the Cranberry Gin Liqueur offers an enticing blend of fruit-forward and bittersweet flavors, surrounded by the crisp, well-rounded notes of KOVAL Gin’s signature 13 botanicals.
"This new direction in KOVAL’s line is an homage to aperitif culture," said KOVAL's President and co-founder Dr. Sonat Birnecker Hart. "It is an excellent base for easy, enticing cocktails and spritzes for all seasons." Simply mix with a splash of Prosecco or any sparkling water, or even incorporate into a classic mulled wine recipe when the holidays approach.
With its dazzling all-natural ruby color and refreshing tart sweetness, KOVAL’s Cranberry Gin Liqueur makes for an approachable yet distinctive way to play with new flavors and enhance classic recipes.
In the bottle, the spirit’s intense cranberry hue, set against a stunning laser-cut paper, embossed and foiled label, designed by the award-winning Dando Projects in New York, makes it an unquestionably beautiful addition to any gift list. KOVAL’s past collaborations with Dando Projects have received numerous design and packaging awards for their innovative techniques and distinct style.
KOVAL Cranberry Gin Liqueur was released on Friday, August 10th in Illinois and New York, and has since been rolling out out nationally and internationally.

More About KOVAL’s Gin Line
KOVAL Dry Gin is made with a unique variety of woodland spices. Juniper and
wildflowers envelop the nose, while the taste is dry, yet vibrant - clean and nuanced by emerald grasses, golden citrus, and white pepper with a round, floral body. Crisp enough to enjoy straight, and of course excellent in cocktails both classic and contemporary. KOVAL makes our Dry Gin in the American aromatic style, lending itself to unique Gin & Tonics that feature more citrus-floral notes than the typical London Dry Gin.
KOVAL Barreled Gin is our Dry Gin base that has been aged for 6-9 months in a barrel that had previously aged our Rye whiskey. The result is a spirit that pleases both gin and whiskey fans. The KOVAL Barreled Gin takes on more depth from the aging process. The citrus notes turn into caramelized orange zest and more obvious floral sweetness. Thus, KOVAL’s Barreled Gin can replace whiskey for a lighter, summertime Old Fashioned, while lending complexity to classic gin cocktails, such as the Negroni.
Founded in 2008, KOVAL is the first distillery in Chicago since the mid-1800s. KOVAL is dedicated to creating unique, luxury organic and kosher spirits that delight in both taste and design, while representing fierce independence, innovation, and social responsibility. KOVAL handcrafts organic spirits from scratch and its signature style - using only the “heart cut” of the distillate - affords a brighter, cleaner take on its full line of gins, whiskeys, liqueurs, brandies, and vodka. KOVAL is available nationwide and in over 55 export markets, and is the largest independent American craft spirits brand.
Organic and Sustainable
All of our products are made from grain to bottle in Chicago. KOVAL controls its entire supply chain from the contracting of local cooperative of Midwestern organic farmers to its new American oak barrels from the forests of Minnesota and use of charcoal purified Lake Michigan water. Every step of the process is documented to the point at which every bottle can be traced back to the fields on
