The House of Botanicals
ABZ Dry Gin
(ABZ Dry Gin) 45% ABV
The House of Botanicals ABZ Dry Gin is their first exploration into the lighter, drier gin style that evolved from its predecessor, the botanical rich and lightly sweetened Old Tom Gin.
With this in mind, their first dry gin is both distilled and compounded, with a traditional copper pot distillation of juniper berries, angelica root, orris root, coriander seed, cassia bark, almond, orange peel and lemon peel taking place before a maceration of our signature Moroccan saffron threads, fennel seeds and a hint of strawberry. This secondary production stage preserves the delicate flavours the latter three botanicals contain whilst also adding a mouthfeel that would typically be lost with a distilled beverage. To finish the gin is unsweetened and bottled at 45% abv.
The colour scheme used across the label is intended to contrast the light colour the gin possesses, whilst the Coat of Arms branding is in homage to the Aberdeen and London City Coats of Arms, with the Black Panther additionally a reference to hip-hop which the team listen to most days at the House of Botanicals!
