From all recent launches lately in the gin sphere we couldn’t help but notice the upward trend in citrus led tipples as seen through the likes of Aldi’s Seville Orange & Persian Lime Gin as well as Beefeater’s soon to be launched Blood Orange Gin.
Launching on April 7th Sipsmith’s newest Orange & Cacao Gin is the perfect tipple for those who are looking for a bit of sweetness in their lives this Easter.
This new gin uses liquorice for natural sweetness, along with orange blossom, black cardamom and raw cacao nibs.
To finish they rest it on fresh orange zest, which apparently creates a balanced, zesty, warming and juniper-forward gin.
The aroma is described by zesty marmalade and the taste is of rich dark chocolate with candied orange and Madagascan vanilla. There is also a long finish of fresh pine and ginger spice.
With an alcohol content of 50% ABV, this contains more juniper than their London Dry Gin, meaning the juniper backbone of the gin isn’t compromised by the additional flavourings.
“This gin has been a true labour of love. From our first day we’ve always made gin without compromise. Getting the perfect juniper forward balance for our Sipsmith Orange & Cacao took time but we were determined to create an orange gin which harks back to a strong trend for citrus gins a century ago,” says Jared Brown, Master Distiller for Sipsmith.
