Product of: Belgium
Distilled with the same 23 botanicals used in its sibling FG 20-3, but OriGIN is a blend of four to five little cuts taken during distillation when different flavours are at their top. Around 25 litres selected from each batch distilation of 200 to 250 litres, enough to fill a mere 35 to 36 bottles.

Pronounced zesty citrus – particularly lemon zest and lemon meringue filling. Underlying, eucalyptus, pine, coriander and lavender blossom.
Superbly clean and at nearly 50% alc./vol. also punchy. Juniper is much more dominant than on the nose with pine, eucalyptus and camphor. The zesty citrus is also very evident but better integrated with coriander, peppery spice and floral lavender.
Lavender, eucalyptus and lemon zest
Closure: Synthetic stopper
