5 Continents Gin is a melting pot of botanicals sourced all over the world. The 47% ABV lends warmth to the savoury grains and peppery juniper.
Distilled by Martina & Fabian Rohrwasser at Gut Basthorst just outside of Hamburg, this is a London Dry style gin, meaning the components are distilled together. The 22 organic botanicals used include lavender and angelica from Europe, grains of paradise originating in West Africa, cubeb pepper from Java, eucalyptus from Australia and liquorice root originating in Asia and America.
This is an aromatic gin, opening with cubeb pepper and grains of paradise on the nose, peppery juniper quickly asserts itself on the palate blending with faint overtones of fresh eucalyptus and a hint of cardamom spice on the finish. If you enjoy a strongly flavoured gin with a kick, this is the one for you.
