Nose: Citrus and floral fragrances with warming undertones of pepper.
Palate: Juniper provides the initial notes, but this gives way to the bright fresh citrus which rolls on your tongue. Verbena provides a mellow creaminess, with the peppers providing the warmth at the back of the mouth. Western red cedar brings back those memories of being in a pine wood in the summer. As the Szechuan pepper oil oxidises on your tongue it causes the mouth to start cool providing the subtle mint note. This then enhance the tail notes of fennel seed and liquorice providing the final flourish that lingers in the mouth.
Finish: Close your eyes and let your palate explore the subtle flavours, as Explorer's Gin enriches your senses. It will leave you wanting more.
The inspiration for our gin comes from the ‘Golden Age of Exploration’ during which European ships travelled around the world discovering both new continents and trading routes.
Explorer’s Gin will cloud when you add both ice and tonic water. Alcohol naturally expands and contracts with temperature and this in turn impacts oils that are held in suspension within the gin. Chill filtration is a process where the oils are taken out; we choose not to chill filtrate this means that it keeps a fuller flavour and aroma. It is these oils which give 'Explorer's Gin' it's unique characteristics.
