The leading spices are, beyond juniper, moroccan coriander, blackcurrant, pink grapefruit, cubeb, rose pepper, pine bud from the Zemplén Mountains, sea buckthorns and of course hárslevel? (it translates as linden leaf in English) grape and elderflower. It is a long, complex gin, you can immediately smell that it is something completely different than what you have felt or thought so far about gin. The total of 21 spices used are in perfect harmony, it does not dominate any of the other, that’s why you can enjoy even the scent of the gin for so long.
Recommended to be consumed at room temperature, as a shot or long drink, especially with dry Indian tonic. Garnish with blackcurrant and grapefruit.
Seven Hills Distillery use onerun, column distilling technology, where part of the spices are steeping in the still for 24 hours, then the next day of the distillation we improve the liquid with additional spices, and place the fresh ingredients in a special steam basket. This way our single distillation method actually combines several technologies and gives a very complex end result. Its specialty is also that the fermentative aromas, generally not used in gin making, and which are based on the separate fermentation of the single ingredients, in our case are realized even in case of two ingredients: we add the hárslevel? (linden leaf) grape and the elderflower separately fermented and distilled, to the flavours and smells which are swirling in the still.
