Sacred Gin is what led distiller, Ian Hart into being an award winning micro distiller. He continues to use reduced pressure distillation to separately distil each of the 12 botanicals (in English wheat spirit), which include juniper, cardamom, nutmeg and Boswellia Sacra (aka Hougary Frankincense).
Incidentally, the Sacred name is derived from Boswellia Sacra, the gin’s defining botanical. Ian blends batches of each botanical distillate to create the concentrated botanical spirits which he then blends according to his own tried and tested recipe to created Sacred Gin.

Subdued, pine-fresh juniper-led nose with delicate violet and estery aromas.
Dry, piney juniper, pilau rice and peppery spiced palate.
Long spicy finish with lingering pine, juniper, red pepper corns.
