Description

Bloedlemoen Handcrafted Amber Gin

Pronounced ‘Blue’d Le Moon’, this is a South African gin which is made from the luscious Tarocco Blood Orange. It proudly calls out that it is the "first Blood Orange Gin" in the World.

The story of this gin starts in 2015, when three food and drink industry specialists got together. They wanted to create a refreshing and delicious gin, one which was layered with the warmth of selected spices.

Ensuring a good relationship with their suppliers is important, and they source their fruit from their selected growing partners based in the Western Cape of South Africa. 

To create their Amber gin, they use the same signature botanicals that can be found in their original gin (10 different botanicals). 

These signature botanicals are Juniper, Blood Orange, Orange Peel, Grains of Paradise, Coriander, Cassia bark, Nutmeg, Liquorice Root, Angelica Root and Cardamom. To these they add a further selection of locally foages botanicals which enhance the classic citrus notes, light juniper and spicy floral nuances of the original.

Similarly to their original, on the nose this gin is full of citrus notes and a light piney juniper aroma, as well as a hint of spice also greeting you. On the palate, the blood orange is also present, along with a sweet spiciness of nutmeg which combines with Cassia and Grains of paradise perfectly adding to the mouthfeel. The finish leaves a refreshing and tingling touch of blood orange lingering in the mouth.

The subtle nuances on this gin are intruiging, and whilst it is definitely of the same family as the original, it's not just the colour which makes this a gin which stands on its own.

Perfect Serve

This is delicious when enjoyed with a neutral tonic (try Fentimans Connoiseurs Tonic). 

Take a large glass filled with ice and add 50ml of the gin. Gently pour over 150 - 200ml of your chosen tonic and stir gently. Garnish with a thick slice of (blood) orange.
