Blind Tiger Piper Cubeba Gin 47° 50cl
Distilled in small batches in the back room of a hidden distillery in western Belgium, unusual botanicals such as malted barley and cubeb pepper are used to give Blind Tiger Gin its bold and invigorating character.
Juniper berries, coriander seed, malted barley, licorice root, angelica root, orris root, lemon peel, sweet orange peel, bitter orange peel, orange blossom, ginger rhizome, green cardamom, cube berries, lavender & a secret Belgian botanical.
Our botanicals (except the cubeberries) are macerated and distilled in a copper pot still (400l). We add the double-distilled cubeberries afterwards.
The full complexity of the Blind Tiger is best enjoyed neat or with ice. Served as a Dry Martini with a twist, the Blind Tiger adds spice and orange notes to this classic cocktail.
In a Gin & Tonic, the spiciness is tempered by the sparkle of the tonic and the quinine emphasizes the otherwise modest citrus character. Any dry and neutral tonic works fine.
The higher than average alcohol content carries pockets of juniper and cubeberry pepper that linger with spicy hints of cracked black pepper, violets, orange and licorice.
The scent of celeriac from the blinded botanical in the nose gives way to spicy and floral notes of orange blossom and some citrus at the first sip.
The palate is complex with a peppery kick and the malted barley provides a long and warming finish with some cracked pepper and cube and earthy notes of ginger, licorice and cardamom.
