Recognition

First time entered in competition for this Gin and awarded a Double Gold at the NZ Spirit Awards in the Contemporary & Navy Strength Category. 

Summary

This is our Navy Strength version of The Holy Spirit - we thought the Saffron might shine more at 57% ABV rather than the standard 46% ABV - still very smooth, especially for such a high percentage and the botanicals are very intense.

The Saffron was sourced from Kiwi Saffron in the deep south and the Pink Peppercorn have been harvested from the Peruvian pepper tree. We actually distilled the saffron with the other botanicals which is why the Gin is perfectly clear (yes it took quite a lot of saffron...)

 

Botanicals

Macedonian Juniper, Saffron, Pink Peppercorns, Rosemary Flowers, Angelica, Cassia Bark, Liquorice, Poppy Seeds, Cardamon, Nutmeg, Dried Lemonade Lime Zest and one secret one.

Distillation Notes

This fermentation for this batch started back in March 2022 and was then distilled four times as well as 20 vapour infusion extraction cycles. Final distillation was 15 April 2022  It might not make any difference, but we also used Antipodes water in the extraction process instead of filtered water. It could make the gin just that little bit smoother.

As usual, the pure gin was diluted with carbon neutral Antipodes water to achieve 46% ABV.

BTW there are about 3 kilograms of Gladfield barley and 1,000 hours of sunshine required to fill each grain to glass Gin bottle.

Pair with Fever Tree Tonic Refreshingly Light for a lower calorie drink. Or you can enjoy with a few lumps of ice.

 

Enjoy!

57% ABV - 500ml (22.5 standard drinks).
