TBGC - Seven Continents Gin
World Gin Day occurs on the second Saturday in June. 2017 is the ninth year of this annual juniper celebration.

Seven Continents Gin is made using botanicals from each of the major land masses.
Juniper – Europe
Coriander Seed – Australia
Angelica Root – North America
Cinnamon – Asia
Liquorice Root – Africa
Lime Zest – South America
The distilled gin is then “lifted and mellowed” by the addition of Antarctic sea salt. Obviously, Antarctica and the surrounding waters are environmentally protected. The sea salt has been harvested from water whose currents originated in Antarctica.
As with that Boutique-y Gin Company’s Moonshot Gin, the aim was to simultaneously create an exciting contribution to the gin category whilst maintaining a high quality liquid.
Aromas: Soft warm juniper with notes of pastry and spice. Quite subtle and nuanced. A touch of soft violet over the top.
Palate: Smooth and juicy with a fresh texture. Subtle soft juniper and floral tones with gentle pepper heat on the finish, (it is 47.7%).
With Tonic: Bright bracing fresh marine notes like being on a seafront. Soft and round on the palate, though retaining the brightness.
I really like this as a gin – not 100% sold on the idea behind this one though!
This isn’t just for fun, it’s for drinking.
