This is the first of the Dark Series releases. 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 of our experimental Dark Series, with each label a limited release.
Nose: Intense and immediate citrus character. Dark resinous pine mingling with wood-spice and pepper.
Palate: Oily and intense, balanced despite the high alcoholic content. The juniper is still the most prominent feature however the earthiness has been dialled up with angelica and orris root clearly major contributors to this character. Pepperberry and cinnamon announce themselves as the gin dries across the back palate. Lemon oils linger on the lips and palate.
Finish: The finish is long and extended, aided by the alcoholic content. The resinous finish found in the Triple Juniper is heightened and developed through the addition of a light menthol character from the Tasmanian pepperberry.
