You're a fan of perfume and a cacophany of aromas and flavours in your gin.
So named for the geographical coordinates of Grasse, the gin is distilled in the town that is long associated with the perfume industry. Utilising similar methods to extract aromas from botanicals as they do perfume, the makers of 44°N gin were inspired by the Mediterranean. The inspiration is reflected in the extensive list of botanicals used including cade (a species of juniper), verbena, everlasting (a golden flower), horse parsley, samphire, lavender, mimosa, grapefruit, patchouli and Sichuan pepper to name but a few. The result is a gin that greets you with a zesty grapefruit punch on the nose, mixed with the salinity of samphire and the wood-pine notes of the juniper. Floral notes follow on the tongue before finishing with a herbaceous kick.
