A desire to create the ultimate gin for juniper lovers took Sipsmith on a mission to distil a 'Very Junipery Over Proof Gin'. When increasing the flavour profile in a gin (in this case, juniper), it is essential to match it with a rise in ABV. At 57.7% ABV, this juniper-forward navy strength gin uses double the amount of juniper berries as their London Dry Gin, and undergoes a three-part juniper-infusion process, including a three day maceration.
This VJOP creation is Sipsmith's pedal-to-the-metal London Dry expression. In their own words: "Imagining the botanicals as components in an orchestra, here we have taken the lead instrument, juniper, and amplified its presence in the ensemble, and then raised the decibels by increasing the proof alcohol. The result is our very own symphony in 'J' major."
Perfect in a G&T with Mediterranean Tonic, or in classic cocktails such as a Martini, Aviation or a twist on the classic Mint Julep.
