SOUTHERN STRENGTH BATCH 6 (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 54%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 gin is our sixth release of our experimental Dark Series, with each label a limited release. Each batch differs slightly from the previous one. This is due to us experimenting with style, strength and flavour until we come upon the recipe that will become our stand along Southern Strength Gin variation. Southern Strength Batch 6 contains an uplift of coriander seed, which creates a uniquely savoury gin, aide by notes of angelica root and balanced by intense juniper.
Nose: Fragrant pine mingling with perfumed orris root, fresh citrus and earthy angelica. Coriander elevates the citrus character.
Palate: Oily and viscous, yet balanced despite the high alcoholic content. Juniper still dominates, lengthened by root and spice character.
Finish: Extremely long as the higher alcohol percentage carries the fuller flavour. Rich and robust, an extended sweetness can be attributed to juniper and liquorice. Pepperberry spice develops late.
