Bareksten Navy Strength Gin 70cl
A rich and powerful Navy Strength gin from the Bareksten family of spirits in Norway
Bareksten Navy Strength Gin
Produced by Oss Craft Distillery in Norway, Bareksten Old Tom Gin, like the rest of the Bareksten family, has been made to represent the true essence of Norway.
It is dark, wild, breathtaking and dramatic in the look of the bottle, the aromas as you open it, and the taste when you drink it.
Bareksten takes its inspiration from the Norwegian Forests. The long days of sunlight in the summer, combined with ample rain and warm weather ensure perfect growing conditions for a number of herbs and berries. These Nordic, natural and organic herbs, potatoes and berries form the basis for the unique flavour of Bareksten.
Their Navy Strength gin is packed full of flavour, spicy and full-bodied. The nose has a clear piney juniper note, joined by sweet flowers, orange - and a powerful spice note. Juniper is prominent at first taste, which is followed by a rich, full, fruity mouthfeel. Spicy pepper notes come through, and a herbal bitterness. Towards the end, the floral notes make themselves known.
It has a long and smooth finish with fruit and spices that will linger to the end.

Mix with a neutral tonic, like Fentimans Connoisseurs Tonic Water to enhance the botanical taste in a G&T. Take a large glass filled with ice, and add 50ml of the gin. Pour over 100 - 150ml of your tonic, and stir gently. Garnish with a thin slice of rhubarb, or some blueberries (frozen work perfectly).
This will also work well with a ginger ale, or in cocktails. As this is Navy Strength is ensures the botanical flavours hold up well in the mix.
Straf spul ;-)Een echte Noorse Gin met pit. Ik hou er wel van.
