Released in January 2018, Elephant Aged Gin is a blend of gins matured in three different types of oak cask for a year. The initial limited edition was made with a rye pot-distilled base spirit and Elephant Gin’s usual 14 botanicals.
Due to the vintage statement on this release reflecting the year of bottling, bottles with both 2017 and 2018 age statements were produced as part of the same batch due to their being bottled a couple of weeks apart in late December 2017 and early January 2018.
Sampled on 27/03/2018
