What we say about Junipero Gin
American Gins have tended to back away from the juniper forward London style Gins, that were the mainstay of the Gin world since Victorian times and before. However Junipero, is firmly in the stable of high-quality classic Gins, and as the name suggests, you can actually taste the juniper in it.
It’s incredibly smooth and well balanced which means, as any great Gin should, it can work in all your favorite classic Gin cocktails. It works especially well in a Dry Martini, from Bone Dry to 50:50, that really allows the Gin to shine.Read More
It’s also bottled at a high strength, which carries more flavour from the still, to the bottle and into your cocktails. In order to take advantage of the benefits that come with this added strength, and find the perfect balance, you need to pay a little extra attention. Therefore, your Martini will need a longer stir, your Tom Collins a little more soda and your shaken cocktails a few more shakes. All to ensure you add enough dilution and unlock all those wonderful flavours.
