SOUTHERN STRENGTH GIN™ BATCH 7 (500ml)
Our Southern Strength Gin is a beast of a gin. It contains not only the intense juniper concentration of the Triple Juniper style but also a heavier alcoholic content sitting at 52%abv. We have also increased the botanical weight to add even more warmth and character and to balance the sheer flavour intensity that juniper at this strength creates. This will be our last batch iteration before Southern Strength Gin graduates from our experimental Dark Series label into its own stand-alone label, set for release in the coming months.
Batch 7 combines the elements that we loved most about previous Southern Strength expressions by elevating the root and seed character to create a super savoury spirit, perfect for lovers of rich martini serves, fresh citrus cocktails and classic gin & tonics. This gin is our seventh release of our experimental Dark Series, with each label a limited release. Each batch differs slightly from the previous one.
Nose: Fragrant pine mingling with bright citrus and earthy angelica. Coriander seed elevates the citrus character.
Palate: Oily and viscous and immediately savoury. Juniper still dominates, however is complimented with earthy notes of angelica root and coriander seed.
Finish: Rich and robust, with Pepperberry spice and cinnamon warmth developing late. The finish is extremely long with the higher alcohol percentage carrying the fuller flavour, perfect for bold martinis or spectacular gin and tonics.
