Copperhead London Dry Gin 50cl
Adored for its orange zest, this gin also has a subtle spice flavour from cardamom.
Copperhead London Dry Gin
Unlike a lot of it's peers, Copperhead decided to go back to the roots of gin, and created a London Dry Gin. (This means the flavours are not added after distillation, but rather included during the process).
Whilst they looked at many different flavour options, they after a month experimenting, they settled on the final five. Juniper, Cardamom, Orange peel, Angelica and Coriander.
The orange comes through predominantly in the aroma, with a sweet and citrus note. On the palate the orange again prevails, with the zestiness coming through. Juniper follows this, and there is a delicate hint of sweetness. The cardamom is noticeable, but certainly doesnt overpower. Copperhead finishes full of juniper, with distinct pine notes.
Did you know.... It was named after Mr Copperhead, an alchemist who spent his career searching for the elixir of life.

For a delicious Copperhead gin and tonic, we recommend a neutral tonic. This gin is around simplicity (only 5 botanicals), and we feel its best to let them shine. Three Cents Tonic Water works exceptionally well, but any premium tonic water will work almost as well.
In a large glass filled with ice add 50ml of the gin and top up with 100 - 150ml of tonic. Stir gently, and garnish with some orange peel.
