Profile

Nose: Juniper, floral and citrus notes with a subtle bouquet of pineapple (red cedar), spice and anise.

Palate: Juniper appears at the forefront replaced by the bright bold citrus flavours, pink and sichuan pepper provide the warmth with verbena adding the creamy textures. As the sichuan oils oxidise on your tongue it causes the mouth to cool providing the subtle mint notes which enhance the tail notes of fennel and liquorice providing the final flourish that lingers in the mouth.

Finish: Smooth, rounded full bodied, with a luxurious texture.

Enjoying Explorer's

Explorer's gin makes a wonderful gin and tonic, using classic tonic water. For those who do not like tonic, try ginger ale it is just as good. For the more daring drinker who likes the little extra it makes a great Southside or Basil Smash.

Sustainability

Creditation: We are small green business certified.

Refill Packs: When you finish your bottle, you can top it up by purchasing our refill pack. Designed to fit through your letter box, it will save you 22% and can be returned to us once used. It is a win for your pocket and the environment, helping us reduce our carbon footprint.

Rewilding Juniper: Juniper is the core ingredient for all gin. Most distilleries have to import their Juniper from either Italy or Poland, as English Juniper is very hard to find. Part of this reason is that it has lost over 50% of its natural habitat within the UK and continues to at an alarming rate. It has lost over 80% of its favoured terroir which is chalkland. Fortunately, with our location on the Wiltshire Downs it provides us the ideal terrain to successfully grow Juniper with the south facing slopes looking towards The New Forest. Working with Plantlife we are rewilding juniper this year.

With luck they will provide us our own British Juniper in the future. We will share updates with you on this exciting project.

Packaging: Our bottles are shipped using Flexi Hex, which is an innovative, sustainable, eco-friendly protective product that allows for the safe and secure shipping of bottles. It was created with the environment and sustainability in mind, their honeycomb sleeves and boxes are biodegradable, recyclable, plastic free, made from sustainably sourced materials and manufactured carbon neutral.

We continue to evolve and improve.
