In the 1920’s Prohibition Era, a “Blind Tiger” was an establishment known to illegally sell alcohol, with a focus on celebrating the exciting flavour and taste of liquor cocktails, many of which were gin based. Blind Tiger Organic Gin is distilled in small batches and is a complex, yet elegant and aromatic gin.
We search the world for the most sustainable, organic botanicals. Blind Tiger Organic Gin is an exotic blend of juniper berries, coriander, angelica root and summer savory.
Juniper Berry is the core botanical of many gins and in Blind Tiger provides a backbone of fresh spring forest and citrus notes. Coriander has been selected as it enhances the citrus characters of the juniper and imparts a subtle earthy character whilst the angelica root gives a delightfully aromatic and heady note of musk. Summer savory completes the botanical mix and contributes a subtle mint like peppery character. The combination of these herbs creates a London Dry gin that is a perfect mixer with tonic or soda and a great base for one of the hugely popular gin based cocktails.
The handpicked organic botanicals are distilled together in a traditional small gin still to create an aromatic infusion that is carefully blended with organic wheat spirit to create a fi ne elegant London Dry style of gin. Distillation is an art that requires great skill and great patience. Great skill in knowing the exact point at which to “make the cut” and the precise blend of botanicals to give the gin the perfect flavour profile. Great patience in allowing all of this to happen in an unrushed and orderly way – the greater the patience the greater the aromatic expression of the botanicals and the greater the time taken to carefully and masterfully put the final blend together.
Gin is truly a product of the Earth. The simple ingredients to a fi ne gin consist of pure water and grain, used to make a neutral spirit and infused with an often secretive and exotic botanical recipe. Botanicals can come from far and wide and can belong to the seed, berry, root, bark or peel categories. Quality starts with quality ingredients and we believe that using ingredients only from certified organic sources ensures that Blind Tiger Organic Gin not only has a purity of flavour but also that we are using sustainable resources. Organic farming means that no artificial herbicides, pesticides or fertilisers are used in the growing of the grain or botanicals we use. This ensures that we minimise our impact on the environment while crafting a spirit that speaks of the clean, green approach we take in making it.
