London to Lima Gin Glacier Adventure Dry gin is made with a very different & interesting base spirit – Pisco! The grape-based spirit gives a unique mouth-feel and stage for the botanicals to sing. Traditional botanical include juniper, and exotic botanicals used include Peruvian coriander, Peruvian lime, Valencia orange, aguaymanto (more commonly known as cape gooseberry) and pink peppercorn grown near the distillery.
The label on the bottle hints at this story too, including both the Union Jack and Peruvian flag. It features the Spectacled Bear, a treeclimber with a diet of gin botanicals – berries, bulbs, honey, fruits, sugarcane and palm hearts – as well as their copper pot still called Endeavour.
The bottle is made from recycled glass, resembling a hip flask and on the back of the label is an expedition map (dating back to 1932) of the Cordillera Blanca, which inspired them to find the perfect water source for their gin
