Naturally Complex, Utterly Delicious
NO ADDITIVES, PRESERVATIVES, SUGARS OR SOFTENERS.
A complex lifted nose, fresh and beguiling.
The multilayered substructure of candied lemon and lime zest rises to a gentle botanical mix of chervil, watercress, parsley and mint in the middle that mixes with an exceptional delicacy of liquorice root and star anise to finish. All the scents are delightfully clear without any hint of alcohol heat to disturb the aroma.
Like the sun rising over the mountain peaks, the piercing clarity of lemongrass and lime zest awakens the sides of the tongue. Meanwhile the weight of the alcohol adds unctuousness to the palate, gently carrying the herbaceous and grassy botanicals through the mouth. The citrus slowly evaporates the body of the drink from the sides to the centre of the tongue, leaving an ethereal hint of liquorice root and star anise spices. There is no harshness and no competition between flavours or aromas, just a gentle evolution of complexity as these nuances interact subtly, harmoniously and naturally.
THE ENDANGERED BLACK ROBIN
Our gin is inspired by the very rare & endangered Black Robin (petroica traversi). We’re dedicated to the preservation of the black robin for future generations so with every bottle sold we donate to help protect wildlife and wild places.
ARTISAN-CRAFTED BATCH DISTILLED
Our Master distiller Michael Deinlein can trace hisdistilling heritage to Oberammergau, Germany where his family made herbal liqueurs in the 1930’s. He masterfully handcrafts each bach in a Arnold-Holstein copper reflux pot still imported from Germany.
