- Gin was created to honor Goleta's agricultural roots. It is a balances blend of citrus, floral, and piney juniper. 14 botanicals dance together to create Goodland Gin's enticing aroma and flavor. It makes a great dry martini, a beautiful negroni and a powerful gin and tonic. This spirit is our "Overachiever" and has won many awards, a Silver at the 2019 American Distilling Institute's International Tasting of Craft Spirits, a silver at the San Diego International Spirits Competition, a gold in the famous Barleycorn awards 2019, and a Best in Show at the Great American International Spirits Tasting 2019.
