The 10 botanicals

What makes our signature gin? Revelry’s master distiller has spent time crafting the ultimate blend of 10 botanicals to create our signature gin. We believe that the balance of our botanicals leads to a fresh, punchy and zesty gin on the nose, with a lively hit of botanicals led by Juniper which coats the mouth, with a smooth, rich and creamy finish.

1. Juniper berries

The defining botanical. It’s not Gin without Juniper.

Juniper berries are spicy, sweet and aromatic. Sourced from the Balkans (Kosovo, Bosnia -Herzegovina, Albania, Macedonia), which is considered the best geographical area for producing Juniper.

2. Coriander Seeds

Coriander seeds are the second most used botanical after Juniper. Once distilled, Coriander releases a complex flavour of citrus, nutty and a little spicy. Sourced from Ukraine, Russia and Romania.

After experimenting with Southern European and North African coriander seeds, we decided on Northern European coriander seeds as they provided a stronger flavour profile.

Coriander seeds help to bring the citrus element to the fore in the Signature Gin, which is the aim.

3. Angelica Root

Used to impart an Earthy note to the Gin, it has been said that Angelica Root is used as a ‘binding agent’ in the gin, but there is little evidence to support this fact. It gives a nice soft finish at the back of the mouth and throat.

Sourced from Eastern Europe.

4. Lemon Peel

Our aim with the Signature Gin was to create a Gin that was Citrusy, so we were always going to use Lemon Peel. It is Tart and zesty.

Sourced from Spain.

5. Bitter Orange Peel

Like the Lemon Peel, Orange adds a certain Fruity, Citrus element and using the bitter Orange helps to create the flavour profile.

Sourced from Spain.

6. Kaffir Lime Leaves

Citrus and Herbal, this is a predominant Botanical in our Signature Gin. Giving a burst of citrus. We decided early on that Kaffir Lime would be a key flavour, just because of our preference and love of Thai food, where Kaffir Lime is used heavily.

Sourced from Thailand.

7. Cassia Bark

Gives a sweet, warm spice on the tongue.

Sourced from Indonesia.

8. Orris Root

A floral fragrant, used as a binding agent.

Sourced from Morocco.

9. Liquorice Root

Sweet and agreeable, balances out bitterness of other botanicals.

Sourced from Turkey/Georgia.
