Bitter gin is a thing of the past thanks to Meadowview Botanical Gin. A mix of 12 botanicals gives this gin its complex citrus and floral flavor. Concocted by co-founders Mitchell Brandt and Jason Stanley with the help of Artisan Spirits LLC, the drink is a side hustle for the pair who work full-time at The Alchemedia Project. The ingredient list contains almost all Missouri finds, and the gin’s name comes from a Springfield street the co-creators called home Find Meadowview at Lucky’s, Hy-Vee, some Price Cutters, Brown Derby International Wine Center, Macadoodles and a handful of restaurants.
