Elephant Gin Elephant Strength Gin (500ml)

$99. 99 Bottle
$1199.88 Dozen
ABV: 57%
A high strength option from the Hamburg based distillery. AKA “navy strength,” it's inspired by a style once offered by the Royal English Navy when Gin was put to the test by lighting it with gunpowder. This edition employs twice the quantity of botanicals with a focus on African buchu, sweet orange peel and herbaceous mountain pine.

Bottled at 57% ABV, the labels in this series carry the names of the so-called "Magnificent Seven": the strongest and most impressive elephants known to Kruger National Park, South Africa. These precious bull elephants all bore tusks weighing more than 50kg each.

Tasting note: The full, intense perfume is at first dryish, rooty, earthy. Second pass accents celery leaf, dried herbs, coriander, orange peel, ripe juniper and hints of liquorice root. An oily, juniper-drenched delivery with superbly integrated flavours of pepper, orris root, pine and liquorice through the booming finish. Excellent persistence, with the creamy mouthfeel lingering. 57% Alc./Vol.
