700ml | 43% ABV
The European Edition blends fragrant myrrh and the distinct aromatic bitterness of cascarilla bark. Inspired by Venice’s 500+ year rich spice trade history and the Italian love affair with cascarilla bark used to create highly aromatic tonics, bitters and vermouths. While cascarilla bark is not native to Europe, it is present in any bitter liqueurs in the south of the continent and adds an aromatic and fragrant twist to OPIHR’s flavour profile.
This is a bold, savoury-led spiced gin with balanced burnt orange and bitter notes. A smooth, rounded London Dry Gin; soft camphor balanced with sweet, smoky wood notes and a clean finish.
Ophir is a legendary region famed for its wealth and riches which prospered during the reign of King Solomon. The King regularly received cargoes of gold, silver and spices from Ophir and whilst its exact location remains a mystery, it is thought to have been in the Orient along the Ancient Spice Route – a network of sea routes that link the East with the West.
OPIHR Spices of the Orient Gin is crafted with a selection of exotic hand-picked botanicals, carefully chosen by OPIHR’s Master Distiller. The botanicals in OPIHR Spiced 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, to produce an exotically spiced gin.
