All about making whisky
JUNIPERO Gin 49,3%
Distilled Gin, United States / California, 70cl, Ref: 1615
Produced in California by the Anchor distillery, which makes Old Potrero rye whiskey, this gin incorporates a dozen plants and spices in addition to juniper. It marks the rebirth of American micro-distilleries, with a production of just 30,000 bottles a year.
A traditional style dry gin, Junipero is produced in pot stills according to a unique recipe that includes more than a dozen aromatic flavourings. Small-scale blending enables a remarkable balance and complexity to be achieved, in which the juniper is subtly integrated with the other spices. Unanimously recognised as one of the greatest gins in the world, and constantly winning awards in international competitions, it is a must for lovers of gin and dry Martinis. Profile: Complex. Pulpy. Exotic fruit. Mango.

- The brand
The Edradour distillery is known most of all for the individual style of its single malt, which is exported throughout the world. Interestingly, the distillery’s owner Andrew Symington, has begun working on special finishes, each one more innovative than the last (Burgundy, Chardonnay, Châteauneuf-du-pape, Madeira, Moscatel, Port, Sassicia, Tokaji, etc.), with these new releases revolutionising the distillery’s somewhat outdated image. Under the directorship of Iain Henderson, the former director of Laphraoig, at the end of 2002 Edradour began producing a second, very peaty, single malt called Ballechin, the name of a former distillery in the region.
