A lightly floral, citrus gin, Silverback Gin donates a pound from every bottle sold to Gorilla Organization, who work to save gorillas from extinction.
Gorilla Spirits Co. was first dreamt up back in the hazy days of 2011 and Silverback Gin, released in late 2015, is the result! Silverback comes from Four Marks, Hampshire, where there is a long-standing tradition of brewing, and as artisan distillers they are proud to build on this local heritage. They hand-craft 'Silverback' London Dry Gin and 'Gorilla' Premium vodka in small batches of just a few hundred bottles at a time, in a still named Mugwaneza’ which translates as 'She who is content'.
A clean and refreshing spirit, Silverback Gin is, on first take, full of fragrant gentle coriander and bright citrus. Pine quickly grounds itself as the centre of the gin with subtle, floral notes (from the Madagascan acacia blossom) making an appearance. Bright, zesty orange and fine lemongrass are prominent throughout. A lovely gin!
