Averell Damson Gin Liqueur


Regular price $30.99

Averell is an exceptionally bright liqueur—the fresh-pressed juice of heirloom Damson Plums married to a botanical gin marked by juniper, warm winter spices, bay leaf and ginger. Delicious with seltzer, sparkling wine or ginger beer, in both hot and cold black tea, or on its own, over ice.
The history of the Damson dates to the dawn of civilization. Prized by the Romans and Crusaders, its cultivation spread throughout Europe and later to the orchards of North American colonial settlers who appreciated its nervy character: rich, intensely tart and slightly bitter.
The turn of the 20th century marked what many consider to be the golden age of fruit and vegetable propagation in the United States—by 1915, over 7500 new and unique varieties were introduced and also catalogued as watercolors by government-commissioned artists. This progressive era was short-lived as post-war developments in commercial farming and mass distribution forced the majority of these varieties into extinction.
The Damson stands today as an endangered variety from a bygone era, grown in limited quantities by stubborn farmers and one that flutters the heart of a farmer's market passerby.

Before placing your first order with us at Liquor Stars, you may have some questions about deliveries, gifting, special instructions, and more. Before dropping us a query, please take a look through our liquor FAQs and see if we have already answered your question.

Can I Track My Order?

When you have checked out and made the payment, you will receive a confirmation email. Subsequently, you will receive an email with your tracking number once your order has been picked up by our delivery partner. When your order is en route, you will receive an additional text message and/or email.

Can I Reschedule Delivery or Cancel the Order?

This will depend on whether your order has already left our store. Cancellations and rescheduling are not guaranteed once your order is out for delivery, and you may be subject to a $20 fee to account for the cost of labor and transportation.

I Have Special Delivery Instructions – Where Do I Add Them?

On the checkout page, there will be a comments box you can fill in, which will be visible both to our team and the delivery driver.

How Do I Make Sure No Receipt Details Are Included in My Gift Order?

If you placed your order as a gift in our system (by adding on gift wrapping), we will automatically leave out the pricing details in the shipment. Please leave us a message in the comments box if you have not opted to add on gift wrapping but are sending your order as a gift.

Who Can Purchase and Receive Orders?

In the United States, you need to be of at least 21 years old in order to place an order and receive your parcel. Even if they are not the intended recipient, an individual below 21 cannot sign for parcels containing alcohol, so make sure that an adult will be around during your selected delivery time.

Where this is possible, we will strive to deliver your liquors chilled. However, in some cases such as where there are insufficient refrigeration facilities, it may not be possible. If you are placing your order for an event, please get in touch with us or leave your instructions in the comment box.
