Juniper Green Organic Gin (37.5%)
London Dry Gin
Altitude Spirits // London, England
This gin has one eye keenly on British tradition and another looking toward modern agricultural innovation. The spirit is based on a distillate of biodynamic rye passed through classic, artisanal, copper pot-stills. The botanical blend is a puritan blend of classic London Dry components including sustainable juniper, organic coriander seed, angelica root, and summer savory. The folks at Altitude Spirits in Colorado specialize in sourcing organic spirits from the world’s traditional crafters of iconic distillates. The adherence to a natural product doesn’t stop at the ingredients, as no colorization, sugar addition, or other modification post distillation. This is bottled at 37.5% ABV; there is a 43% ABV for the US market.

"With only four botanicals used here, the gin isn't super dynamic, but this simple recipe allows the gin to have a sense of purity about it. Herbal savory notes and earthy angelica root come through the strongest with the warm coriander coming next. The gin is medium weight and tastes spicy towards the end which is only slightly bitter. This could get washed away in a fussy cocktail and the proof doesn't lend itself to a martini. Try in a Gin Smash using fresh raspberries or a gin and soda with a twist."
