Opihr Exotic Citrus Gin 70cl - Arabian Edition
Oriental flavours of Opihr Gin with powerful bursts of Persian black lemons amplified by the sharp citrus flavour of Timut peppers. A richly intense citrus and spice-led gin with concentrated lemon notes and spices.
Opihr Arabian Edition is a richly intense citrus and spice-led gin with concentrated lemon notes. It is inspired by the Iranian love for Persian black lemons, or 'Ã‹Å“loomi' (actually sun-dried limes), which add a unique tangy and earthy flavour to Middle Eastern chutneys and stews. Black lemons play a central part in Persian cooking thanks to their sweet citrus flavour and the lack of bitters that other lemons bring '‚¬Å“ due to the drying process which is similar to sundried tomatoes '‚¬Å“ and gives the lemons their curious colour.
The powerful bursts of Persian black lemons are heightened further by the zesty citrus flavours of Timut peppers, making the Arabian Edition a carefully crafted and perfectly balanced London Dry gin, elevated through the marriage of citrus and spice.
The aroma is of richly intense Arabian citrus and spiciness. It has smooth soft perfume notes from the fundamental juniper core, but balanced with concentrated citrus notes of Black Lemons, galangal and Timut peppers.
The taste is smooth, it's a rounded London Dry Gin; soft camphor, sharp burst of green citrus notes with some sweetness, which creates a warm mouth feel that lingers but does not increase in intensity.
