Juniper Green Organic London Dry Gin
We're digging on boutique-y type gins lately. Even though we haven't reviewed our bottle of G'Vine yet, but we're excited about it. Since we've got some gin on the brain, we were excited to hear about another small gin maker - and this one is organic to boot.
Juniper Green is a 100% organic gin, all the ingredients are USDA certified organic, British Soil Association Certificate, and CCOF certified. It is made with demineralised water and organic grain spirits. The botanicals are organic juniper, organic coriander, organic angelica, and organic savory. It has won many awards and medals in International competitions.
Read the tasting notes below.
Juniper Green has the aroma of a classic, big, London dry gin with lots of juniper and dry spices on the nose- rich, full, and teasingly complex. You wouldn't think that there are only four botanicals in this gin. The juniper and angelica root are up front, buoyed up with the coriander seed, while the savory hides in the back but is definitely present. The aroma is all gin, and a grown up one at that.
The taste is complex, the savory and juniper are most evident, with the angelica and coriander holding it together. It has a musty and almost antique taste, that is very pleasant. Smooth, vibrant, and bold. All the classic gin taste, but with a strong sense of power and strength from the herbs and spices. It seems quite simple at first, but the reality is very complex and dynamic. I don't know why, but the flavor of age and wisdom comes through.
