In a Nutshell

Vibrant and "punchy" London Dry style gin

Tasting Notes

The main balance of flavours is between fresh juniper and the citrus elements - lemon, orange and bergamot which adds a more vibrant slightly bitter note. This extra dry balance is set against a background of rich, woody spice and aromatic floral roots.

Production Notes

The first step in the preparation of Boxer Gin is the careful distillation of a soft, pure wheat spirit, using the highest quality grain from the east of England. This grain is fermented and distilled using a combination of a modern tower still and the veteran copper pot still. The result is a gentle, soft spirit with a natural grain sweetness and subtle flavours of grass and hay.

The next step is to distill a classic London Dry Gin. The botanicals are steeped for eight hours in the spirit after which the mix is transferred into "Angela" - Boxer Gin's 108 year old copper pot still - which is gently heated until the spirit is turned into vapour and then condensed back into a liquid.

Boxer then separately steam distill fresh, wild juniper berries to extract their essential oil. This gentle 20 hour process is carried out at source in the Himalaya, capturing each and every delicate nuance of flavour with absolute clarity. Similarly, they also extract a zingy raw citrus essential oil by cold pressing fresh bergamot peel. These oils are then added to the gin to add an extra vibrant punch to the gin.
