SOUTHERN STRENGTH BATCH 3 (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 mouth-feel and character and to balance the sheer flavour intensity that juniper at this strength creates. This gin is the very first 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.
Nose: Dark resinous pine mingling with wood-spice and pepper. A slight lift in the citrus profile in comparison to earlier batches.
Palate: Oily and viscous, yet balanced despite the high alcoholic content. Juniper still dominates, however the brightness of lemon and lime have been amplified.
Finish: The finish is extremely long and extended, as the higher alcohol percentage carries the fuller flavour. The resinous finish found in the Triple Juniper is heightened and developed through this botanical weight.
