Piger Henricus Gin
Les Distillateurs Subversifs // Quebec, Canada
Released in 2013, Piger Henricus Gin is produced in Quebec by the microdistillery, Les Distillateurs Subversifs (translation: "The Subversive Distillers"), in partnership with La Société des plantes, an organic heirloom seed producer. It's made with botanicals traditionally used in London dry gin - juniper berries, coriander, angelica root, lemon peel and cardamom - but also includes an unusual ingredient, parsnip. The vegetable is featured on the label and is courtesy of the organic farm. Bottled at 43% ABV.
Modern GinAlso has been referred to as "Contemporary", "New Western", "New Wave", and "New American". This style is not legally defined. In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.
