Hepple Gin - 700mlRegular price $110.00
Alcohol Percentage: 45%
Nose: There is an immediate fresh scent of green apple, bright grapefruit and spicy juniper. This then opens up to reveal underlying notes of Douglas Fir, and fragrant blackcurrant
Taste: The initial fresh citrus flavours evolve into unexpected ripe cantaloupe melon, the spicy fragrant juniper continues to coat the palate. There is a luscious sweet mouthfeel, which is both juicy and quenching
Finish: Extremely long and this is where the juniper reveals itself further with flavours alternating between sandalwood and cedar with a notable savoury presence that complements the sweet blackcurrant and liquorice. The sweet juiciness is maintained throughout the finish
Hepple Gin is crafted using a rather intricate production method, which includes pot stills, vacuum distillation and a supercritical CO2 extraction process. A base spirit is distilling in a pot still using a selection of botanicals including Italian juniper. More botanicals are vacuum-distilled, including locally picked juniper, Amalfi lemon and lovage. This extraction process is used to make a spirit flavoured with Macedonian juniper. These are expertly blended together resulting in this fascinating tipple.
