Founder and distiller, Ben Capdevielle, began distilling gin as a hobby with his father, "Big Jim". Jim learned how to distill from his father, Ted, and happily passed the tradition along to Ben. After a combined 25 years in the bar & restaurant industry, husband/wife team Holly Robinson & Ben Capdevielle set out to distill a line of gin designed for people who enjoy the taste of juniper, aptly named after his father's nickname <Big Jim>.
Captive Spirits has made a name for itself as a leading gin company, both nationally and internationally recognized, consistently begin ranked in top honors by both peers & ginners, alike. Big Gin & it's Bourbon barreled counterpart has become back-bar staples, across the US & beyond.
Creating a legacy by making quality & consistent spirits for gin lovers is what Captive Spirits Distilling is all about. Distiller owned & family operated.
