Juniper, Coriander Seed, Angelica Root, Orris Root, Kaffir Lime Leaf, Manuka, Orange, Cardamom, Black Peppercorns & Cassia.
Well-balanced initial tastes of refreshing juniper with lingering citrus and peppery notes, all built on a generous base of local and exotic botanicals. Known for charming the most ordinary occasion into something magical. A hand-selected, harmonious blend of the finest botanicals and spices and pure New Zealand mountain water sourced from Mt Taranaki.
During the still design phase, BeGin worked with a Taranaki engineering team, Rivet, to create a copper still that minimised waste production and where waste generation was unavoidable, included handling systems to allow recycling of by-products into other industries (their liquid by-products have been used to make beer and solids to make chocolate truffles). They have a built-in system to harvest and store rainwater for the cooling condenser and they've incorporated design aspects to prevent (and recover) any heat loss during the distillation.
BeGin Distilling is the husband and wife partnership of Taranaki locals Jo and Dave James — engineering meets the love of gin! Based in New Zealand, the two chose 'Juno' as the goddess to reflect their gins. Juno, is the wife of Jupiter and known as the goddess of marriage and domestic harmony. She is linked to the idea of vital force, fullness of vital energy and eternal youthfulness.
Juno is the perfect goddess to oversee the marriage of flavours that happens within the copper pot still during distillation. Ensuring that the carefully selected botanicals and the beautiful water of Mt Taranaki come to fruition as an extra fine gin of distinction.
