Tasting Notes: The Arctic explorers of the 18th and 19th centuries used Orkney as their supply base when launching expeditions to discover the Northwest Passage. Following in their footsteps, the Northwest Passage Expedition team together with Orkney Distillery have expertly distilled a Gin from rare botanicals found on the shores of Orkney and Hudson Bay, bottled from the same water source that supplied the ships of Captain Cook and Sir john Franklin.
The unique flavours of Northwest Passage Expedition Gin are drawn from Sugar Kelp, Angelica Archangelica, Ramanas Rose, and Burnet Rose. The Angelica root adds a hint of sweetness that is balanced by a subtle, floral note from the roses. The addition of lemon peel and calamondin brings the bright, citrus notes to the gin and the sugar kelp, a seaweed, adds a mild saltiness to the palette, connecting the spirit to the sea – just one sip will transport you back to the Age of Discovery. It is truly the spirit of adventure.
