Junipero Gin, a San Francisco-based award-winning brand known as America’s first craft gin, announced today that it has partnered with the San Francisco Giants, establishing the brand as the team’s official gin partner. Junipero Gin is produced at the Hotaling & Co. Distillery on Pier 50, directly across from Oracle Park, home of the San Francisco Giants.

Junipero Gin’s mission has remained consistent for a quarter-century since it was founded in 1996. The emphasis is on being audacious, defying established norms, and living unfiltered lives. San Francisco is Junipero Gin’s largest fanbase. Born and raised in a city of firsts, it is a haven for those who defy convention to pursue an original path.

The Giants will host Junipero Gin sampling events at Oracle Park, promote the brand on local television, and feature Junipero Gin celebrating “San Francisco Unfiltered” on Oracle Park’s scoreboard and in-park signage part of the three-year deal. Junipero Gin will be the franchise’s official gin partner until late 2024 under the terms of the agreement.

According to Dan Leese, owner and producer of Junipero Gin and President and CEO of Hotaling & Co., this partnership will provide a ballpark experience for both the team and its fans. Due to the brand’s proximity to Oracle Park and commitment to the community, this partnership is a natural fit.

The San Francisco Giants’ Senior Vice President and Chief Business Development Officer, Jason Pearl, stated that the team is proud to continue their partnership with Hotaling & Co., a local brand whose values and objectives align with their own. As with the Giants and their Bon Appetit food and beverage partners, Hotaling & Co. strives to provide its customers with a diverse and high-quality selection of products.

Junipero Gin, headquartered in San Francisco, pioneered the American craft gin movement in 1996. Junipero is a Spanish term that refers to the juniper berry, the primary botanical in gin. With an unwavering commitment to elevating juniper and citrus flavors, the distilling team pioneered a new path by handcrafting each batch of Junipero in a small copper pot, scouring the globe for the most expressive botanicals, and boldly bottling at an unfiltered 98.6 proof. Junipero is still handcrafted in San Francisco and honors conventions to pursue its unique path. Visit for more information on Junipero.
