Juniper takes the helm in this award winning gin. To quote the distiller, 'a ridiculous amount is used'! Firstly the juniper is steeped for 16 hours in high abv spirit, more juniper is added to the boiler prior to the start of the distillation run along with 9 other botanicals, and then the still’s vapour basket is packed with as much juniper as it will hold. Great in a cocktail or a classic G&T. Note: when chilled or diluted this gin may appear cloudy, due to the dissolved botanical oils coming out of solution. Known as louching, this is shows just how many botanicals and how much flavour has been packed into each bottle.
