Belgium – 40% 50cl
Created by Yvan Vindevogel, a famous Belgian pharmacist who was very interested in the healing aspects of gin. The name Copperhead not only highlights the copper alembic used for its production but also the Agkistrodon contortrix snake (AKA Copperhead) which is the pharmacies symbol of health.
The botanical blend is a little simpler than some of the new wave gins that have been launched recently. It is comprised of 5 botanicals- juniper, coriander, cardamom, orange peel and angelica. The nose shows a lot of coriander and the juniper is clear with a touch of cardamom to finish. The palate begins where the nose leaves off and cardamom is at the forefront with some sweet orange peel coming through to help give this gin its distinctive length.
