This gin takes its name from the tiny juniper berries hand-foraged in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan where this juniper grows above 4000 metres. These berries are smoked over agarwood.
Along with this rare juniper, other exotic botanicals used include bitter orange, manuka leaves, olive leaves, Tasmanian mountain pepper, oud and cloud tea. More regular gin botanicals used include coriander seeds, angelica root, orris root and liquorice root.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 27/04/2023
Pine-forward juniper with lavender, violet, black tea and black peppercorn spice. Faint lapsang souchong smokiness.
Piney juniper with earthy, woody nutty angelica, black tea, violet and a charcoal/coal dust note. More whisps of lapsang souchong smokiness.
Long piney juniper, black tea and cracked black pepper finish with the lingering sensation of having drunk perfume.
"The world's most distinctive gin" is a big claim. It's certainly far from bog-standard, being juniper-forward but with the usual pine notes of juniper joined by black tea, faint smokiness and cleansing peppery spice. It is also distinguished by its lofty price point!
