Estonian artisan gin brand Junimperium has introduced its Winter Edition Gin to the UK on-trade and off-trade in time for the festive period.
The 43% ABV gin is inspired by the classic, seasonal flavours of Northern Europe, where it is distilled. It is infused with lingonberries, which are native to the Estonian Boreal Forests, alongside a traditional medley of botanicals that include coriander, cardamon, bitter orange, cassia bark, vanilla and juniper berries.
The result is a “warming, lightly spiced flavour that is bittersweet and unique in its complexity; evocative of Christmas markets and winter wonderlands”.
The Winter Edition Gin joins Junimperium’s Blended Dry Gin, Navy Strength Gin and Rhubarb Edition Gin, which are all available in the UK through Distilled Brands.
Tarvo Jaansoo, Junimperium co-founder and brand ambassador, said: “We are delighted to introduce our Winter Edition Gin to UK gin fans.
“It is a sophisticated and full-bodied take on the popular flavoured gin and showcases the wonderful, warming flavours of Northern European winters and the festive season.”
Gary Hazell, managing partner of Distilled Brands, added: “At Distilled Brands, our aim is to discover the world’s best independent, artisan brands and introduce them to the UK.
“As such, Junimperium is the perfect addition to our portfolio. Their commitment to quality and efficacy knows no bounds and since launching the brand in the UK earlier this summer the response from bartenders, buyers and gin fans has been incredibly positive.”
