A full-bodied flavour Gin with citrus and spice being notable on the palate. The core flavours that support the fresh juniper include soft spices (coriander, confetti, honey bush and touch of buchu) and citrus (Grapefruit, Mandarin and Lime). It is expertly balanced with each of the botanicals playing a valuable and effective role.
All fresh ingredients (12 in total) are soaked in 61.5Vol % overnight. The next morning the distillation process is started and after about running for 4 hours the first signs of gin emerge. A controlled Colom potstill is used to ensure purity of flavours. The Gin is allowed to rest for a month to ensure the flavours marry. The final process is diluting the Gin with filtered mountain water to 43 Vol %.
The Old N1 Fijnbos Gin goes well with Mosquito Pink Tonic, cinnamon sticks, rosemary, orange peel and juniper berries.
