ELEPHANT Gin &Fine Spirits Edition 45%
Distilled Gin, Germany, 50cl, Ref: 55530
Produced using artisanal methods in the region of Hamburg, Elephant Gin is distilled in a small Holstein pot still and each batch creates no more than 600 bottles. The ingredients found in this limited edition selected by the team at & Fine Spirits, our store in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, include fresh apple, bitter and candied orange peel, and juniper berry, jasmine and bay leaf. Tessa and Robin Gerlach, and Henry Palmer, the distillery's founders, were particularly inspired by the flavours found in the cuisine of the south of France. Huge fans of Africa, they also use many traditional botanicals found on this continent.
Straightaway, on the initial nose, incredibly pure notes of chamomile and bay leaf appear on the summit of the aromatic palette. Allowed to breathe, orange peel and juniper berry bring lots of energy. Next, the delicate fragrance of jasmine gradually fills the air. At once lively and fresh, the attack is particularly floral (jasmine, lily) and slightly liquorice (stick). The mid-palate places orange peel at the heart of the flavour palette, whilst fresh apples spread their sweet juices around the palate. Very harmonious and having found perfect balance, in addition to its fruity, floral and luscious tones, the finish is divinely milky (coconut) and balsamic (pine). With time, notes of cut grass, aniseed and lime bring lots of freshness to the very end of the palate. The retronasal olfaction is floral and mentholated. Juniper berry, nutmeg and bay leaf waft from the empty glass.
