With the aim of pursuit of a gin to make the perfect dry martini. The only way to capture the wild heart of this juniper was to completely rethink how the gin was made. Thus Hepple’s Triple Technique was born.
Rethink how gin is made. Hepple Gin uses an innovative Triple technique to maximise the flavour of its botanicals; Copper Pot distillation, Vacuum distillation, and CO2 extraction. Furthermore, Italian, Balkan and Hepples’ home-grown juniper are all used to showcase the true taste of wild juniper.
There is an immediate fresh scent of green apple, bright grapefruit and spicy juniper. This then opens up to reveal underlying notes of Douglas Fir, and fragrant blackcurrant.
If you love the taste and smell of juniper, this is definitely the bottle for you. The initial fresh citrus flavours evolve into unexpected ripe cantaloupe melon, the spicy fragrant juniper continues to coat the palate. There is a luscious sweet mouthfeel, which is both juicy and quenching.
Extremely long and this is where the juniper reveals itself further with flavours alternating between sandalwood and cedar. With a notable savoury presence that complements the sweet blackcurrant and liquorice. The sweet juiciness is maintained throughout the finish.
