Wine Enthusiast 89 points - This gin offers bold anise flavor and a spicy but clean finish, with notes of juniper, grapefruit peel, white pepper and lemongrass. A good choice for gin and tonics, as it will stand up to mixers and lots of ice. USDA certified organic. (Nov 2013)
An incredibly fun gin that serves the purpose of getting sozzled better than all others. Haling from the Black Forest in Germany, the name comes from the number of botanicals that go into this unique gin, and the fact it's bottled at bedtime-inducing 47% proof. Palate-wise it's complex (there are 47 tastes inthere!), woody,spicey, fruity and herby. Pretty much everything a gin can be.
|Juniper: Juniper, the primary botanical used to flavor gins, is also the inspiration for gin’s name as gin is a shortened version of the Dutch word for juniper, geniever. Essential oils are extracted from juniper berries to give gin its characteristic aroma and taste.
Elderflower: In season only from mid-May to mid-June, elderflower has a delicate floral flavor. The fragile, creamy-white blossoms, from which the lovely but hard to describe taste of the elderflower is coaxed out is complex with notes of flowers and summer fruits.
Lemon Grass: Lemon grass has a vibrant, lemony flavor. The botanical is extracted from the leaves and stalks of lemon grass and is a frequent ingredient in gin cocktails. We felt it deserved a prominent place in our gin.
Coriander: One of the oldest known botanicals and a traditional gin flavoring, coriander has a citrusy, nutty flavor. In addition to being an important gin ingredient, coriander, the seed of the cilantro plant, is also said by some to be a digestive aid and to help alleviate insomnia.
Angelica Root: Recognized as much for its medicinal properties as its flavor contribution to gin, angelica root has a slightly sweet, warm, aromatic, musky taste. Heralded in some cultures as a panacea for ailments ranging from colds to gout, angelica root also complements juniper and other gin botanicals.
