Opihr - Official Gin Sponsor

Opihr - pronounced ‘o-peer’ - is a unique style of London Dry Gin created by the world’s first female Master Gin Distiller, Joanne Moore, at the world’s oldest gin distillers, using exotic botanicals, herbs and spices.

The heritage of Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin is firmly rooted in the ancient Spice Route. Traditionally merchants would travel thousands of miles trading exotic spices and botanicals from distant lands. Opihr is crafted with a selection of exotic hand-picked botanicals, carefully chosen by Opihr’s Master Distiller, including spicy cubeb berries from Indonesia, black pepper from India and coriander from Morocco. Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin has bursts of citrus balanced with the rich, earthy aromas and a soft spice. This gin epitomises the exotic intensity of the Orient, awakening the senses to a new style of gin.

Tasting notes:

Appearance: A clear bright liquid.

Nose: A bold intense Oriental spiced gin; smooth soft perfume notes, warm earthy spice background note balanced with a sharp burst of citrus from the spices and fruit peels.

Taste: Soft camphor, some sweetness and oriental spices create a warm mouth feel that lingers but does not increase in intensity.
