The nose is a bright, pine lime splice mingling with fresh pine needles and split gum leaf. The palate is fragrant and drying, with bold juniper making way to peppery menthol and an earthiness. The finish is long and oily, with bags of juniper and citrus oil remaining long after the alcohol evaporates.

A yearly seasonal release, representing the freshest, brightest juniper character directly air-freighted from North Macedonia.

A pure juniper distillate is then collected and blended into a base made from our triple juniper process.

Bottled at the official navy strength of 58%, this gin is long, complex and viscous.

High levels of clouding occur when mixed, due to massively elevated juniper levels.


TWENTY TWENTY VINTAGE

The 2020 juniper vintage had low yields and a high proportion of green berries. The 2020 Juniper Freak highlights intense pine and bright citrus on the nose. This will slowly evolve in the bottle, allowing wooded spice and earthy flavours to develop.

TASTING NOTES:

Look – Brilliant, clear and oily. Heavy clouding occurs when you add tonic water.

Nose – Concentrated juniper presents immediately. Bright, pine-lime splice mingling with fresh pine needles and split gum leaf.

Palate – Thick and viscous. Bold juniper making way to peppery menthol.

Finish – Long with resinous juniper oils coating the palate and pepper berry developing late
