The Astraea journey starts with passion. A passion for botanicals, a love of this place we call home, devotion to the perfection of craft and for you, our customer, an appreciation of peerless spirits produced through mastery of every part of the process.
To make Astraea spirits, we find the best Pacific Northwest botanicals, and use them in meticulously crafted gins. Our founder, Danielle Leavell, MSc, is one of a handful of female distillers in the US trained in traditional brewing and distilling methods, and it’s her touch that ensures the perfect balance that characterizes Astraea gins.
For all those who choose our products, we welcome you to the experience of Astraea. We invite you to be part of a community – to relish the ritual, to discover something new, and to share Astraea in celebration of life’s special moments, both large and small.
A long-time devotee of the arts of botanicals and distilling, Danielle was accepted into the prestigious Masters of Science
Brewing and Distilling program at Heriot-Watt University in Scotland, receiving the designation of Master Distiller. She has returned to her home in Seattle to realize her vision: flawlessly crafted botanical spirits that are derived from a sense of time and place. Each Astraea product is a botanical story infused with Danielle’s expertise and enthusiasm. Astraea embodies her belief that a distiller must practice and improve her craft, always seeking perfection.
