Sun And Citrus - special edition diluted with Birch Sap
Every year since 2017 Njord has made a birch sap springtime special edition of one of their most popular gins Distilled Sun And Citrus. The gin is diluted with only fresh birch sap and is available in limited numbers.
Why birch sap? It adds wonderful fresh and sweet notes, and as a bonus, it enhances the complex and volatile floral and fruity layers in Sun And Citrus.
Key Botanicals Lemon verbena, lemon balm, thyme, rosemary, blackberry, blueberry, juniper, lemon- and orange peel, lime blossom and beach rose petal.
Distillate and Alcohol Strength Barley malt. 47,5%.
Botanicals: The eight botanicals from Distilled Mother Nature are joined by lemon verbena, lemon balm, lemon and orange peel, blueberry, blackberry, Scotch rose, heather flower, dog rose, thyme, rosemary, linden flower and birch sap.
The result is botanical wildness, and the taste travels far and wide from the first, distinct citrus notes over floral components to the deeper, sweet layers. The wildness is driven by the high alcoholic strength from the home-made, characteristic malt distillate.
Despite the alcohol content, the distillate is a bright palette filled with flavour under the many light, citrus and floral layers characterising this gin. Distilled Sun and Citrus makes a positive difference in gin-based cocktails and brings out the summer and sun in a G&T.
