Description
 
Opihr Gin is named after the legendary port from which King Solomon was said to receive a cargo of gold, silver, sandalwood, pearls, ivory, apes and peacocks every three years.The gin itself was designed with the equally exotic ancient spice route in mind – that which sailed from Indonesia to the United Kingdom via India, Turkey, Italy, Morocco and Spain. The route was treacherous indeed; the sea was wild, and so were the pirates that roamed it. The spices were in huge demand however and so the ships sailed…
While none of the botanicals are particularly unusual, their combined presence pulls the drink down a very distinctive path. There’s cubeb from Malaysia, black pepper, cardamom and ginger from India, cumin from Turkey, coriander seed from Morocco, bitter oranges from Spain, Juniper from Italy and Angelica from Germany in the mix. The only ingredient whose origin goes unexplained is grapefruit peel.
The botanicals in Opihr Gin make the journey to their final destination, the oldest distillery in England, where quality gin has been Traditionally distilled, using the same London Dry Gin method, since 1761. Here the botanicals are married with fine English spirit to produce an exotic oriental spiced gin. Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin has bursts of Citrus balanced with the rich, earthy aromas and a soft spice. Opihr epitomises the exotic intensity of the Orient, awakening the senses to a new style of gin.
