ABV: 42.7%

An Australian gin from a company better known for world class brandies - Angoves. Made using hand harvested, organically grown botanicals including juniper berries, coriander root, angelica root and summer savory, all distilled together in a traditional small still to create an aromatic infusion in organic wheat spirit. As of 2023, this gin sports a new recipe and the label now states "London Dry". An increase in the citrus component provides more lift on the nose and palate. The aromas are pure and true to style with juniper, citrus peel, white pepper and a slightly nutty character following in a medium bodied, creamy delivery, echoing the bouquet and building spicy warmth as it goes. Coriander seed, pepper and tangy peel round off a fresh, lip smacking finish, with piney juniper and more citrus oils in tow. If you're curious about the name, in the 1920’s Prohibition Era a “Blind Tiger” was an establishment known to illegally sell alcohol. Awarded a silver medal at the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition. 42.7% Alc./Vol.

First batch tasted 2015... Clear. Opens with restrained, drier styled aromas of juniper, lemonade and hints of blackpepper. Light and soft entry builds towards a juniper, citrus peel, coriander seed and pepper accented finish. Ends medium long, with spices balancing the whole and carrying the aftertaste. 88 points
