|Distilled in||Cantabria, Spain|
Siderit Hibiscus Gin uses the same 12 botanicals as Siderit's London Dry, but concentrates on one of them in particular, hibiscus.
Distillery Siderit, based in Northern Spain, has had a clear idea of its objectives since its beginning; the founders wanted to produce distillates of highest quality, with the best raw materials and the delicacy required for products capable of delighting the most demanding palates.
Hibiscus is an exotic plant that is native to Africa but cherished in the Caribbean (it is also known as the Jamaica Flower). It has been used to spice up drinks and give them medicinal qualities for centuries throughout Africa and Asia.
The Hibiscus flower gives this gin its light pink colour. Siderit Hibiscus begins with a powerful floral aroma, with juniper just breaking through. A soft gin with a light sweetness throughout.
This is an amazing gin. A fruity explosion in a bottle. Needing to try a completely different gin at the London Gin Festival, I opted for the Hibiscus gin and I was not disappointed. Will be buying another bottle soon I feel!
