We capture the spirit of summer with our Sweet Tea Gin through a harmony of juniper, matcha, chamomile, and black teas with a touch of citrus.

The taste profile is herbal forward with hints of citrus. It is perfect for refreshing a classic cocktail like a Tom Collins or you can just add lemonade.

Experimentation is everything; so sip it, mix it, but most of all enjoy it. UpEnd your perception of gin. We say, it’s not where you start, it’s where you EndUp.

-Gin Infused with Sweet Tea-

A Modern Take

UpEnd Sweet Tea Gin is distilled and blended to create a spirit that can bridge the gap between those who typically shy away from gin and the gin enthusiast. 

Our aim is to upend the perception of gin as a singular flavor profile and highlight the broad range of styles and botanicals in gin recipes. To build on our vision, we began developing a citrus forward gin.  We balanced that out with a mix of different teas.  As the spirit developed, it became increasingly reminiscent of a homemade sweet tea and UpEnd Sweet Tea Gin was born.


There is more to gin than a gin and tonic. Shake up your drinks repertoire by giving UPEND gin the star treatment. Try these great recipes to spice up your next party.
