This “Elephant Strength” gin supports African Elephant conservation with a donation of 15% of profits to elephant foundations. It is distilled with the same 14 botanicals as its 45% alc./vol. sibling, including five from Africa: Devil’s Claw, Buchu, Lion’s Tail, African Wormwood and Baobab fruit.
The other less exotic botanicals are: Juniper, Indonesian cassia bark, French lavender, Spanish sweet orange peel, locally sourced fresh apples, Chinese ginger, Mexican pimento berries, elderflower sourced from the Ukraine and Poland, and mountain pine needles from the Salzburger Mountains.

Elephant Gin’s bespoke embossed bottles are adorned with hand-written labels. Each batch is named after one of seven elephants in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 31/05/2017

Appearance:

(sample bottle batch name João bottle No. 150) Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Peppery spirituous spice, pine, lavender, celery, nutty cumin and zesty citrus.

Taste:

Intensely flavoured with piney juniper, peppery spice, cumin and floral lavender. Water intensifies herbal notes.

Aftertaste:

Spicy finish with more pine and lavender. Lingering herbal bitterness, particularly with water/tonic.

Overall:

This high-strength bottling certainly packs an Elephant Strength punch – it also has a long herbal bitter finish.
