There’s a new gin in town and taken by its predecessor it’s bound to be a good one, fellow gin lovers. Word has it for Opihr Gin European Edition, and if you’re anything like us you won’t be able to contain your excitement until you get your hands on this beauty.
Opihr gin (pronounced “o-peer”) stands out from the rest of its “peers” (pun intended) primarily due to its botanical versatility and its delightfully rich aroma.
Opihr European Edition is one of three regional edition expressions form the Opihr gin range, which were inspired by the merchants who would travel ancient trade routes selling various spices.
The heritage of Opihr gin is rooted firmly in the historical Spice Routes, where ancient traders would sail thousands of miles to transport exotic spices and botanicals from the Orient and the Middle-East to Europe.
This one is the European Edition, and it brings the addition of Cascarilla bark to the Opihr recipe, further building out the fragrant and herbaceous flavour profile.
To taste you should expect coriander, orange, spiced oak warmth, oily juniper and a whiff of black tea.
Available on Master of Malt for £26.95.
