Sipsmith V.J.O.P.

From Sipsmith

A desire to create the ultimate gin for juniper lovers took Master Distiller Jared Brown on a mission to distil a ‘Very Junipery Over Proof Gin’. When increasing the flavour profile in a gin, it is essential to match it with a rise in ABV. At 57.7% ABV this juniper-forward gin uses double the amount of juniper berries to our London Dry Gin.

Imagine the botanicals as components in an orchestra, here we have taken the lead instrument, juniper, and amplified its presence in the ensemble, then raised the decibels by increasing the proof alcohol. The result is our very own symphony in ‘J’ major.
