Opihr is a bold, intense, oriental gin; smooth soft perfume notes, warm earthy spice background note balanced with a sharp burst of citrus.
The producers of Opihr (Quintessential Brands in association with G&J Distillers), have been producing fine spirits for over 250 years and are the oldest distillery in England.The heritage of Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin is firmly rooted in the ancient Spice Route. Traditionally merchants would travel thousands of miles along the route, trading exotic spices and botanicals from distant lands.
A wonderfully warming drink though juniper and the associated flavours from it definitely take a back seat here.
I love this exotic tasting gin. I haven't tried a gin like it. Coriander at the forefront with a warming mixed spice background with bursts of citrus - very oriental that it is so hard to believe it's actually made in England! I drink mine with a slice of orange and Fentimans tonic and give it top marks.
An interesting gin, definitely one to go for if looking for something different. Has a warm spicy finish, very nice.
I love this Opihr gin with its hint of spiciness! I have mine with a slice of fresh root ginger and 1724 tonic water. Lovely!
