Junipero San Francisco Strength Gin
The first of its kind, Junipero fearlessly led the birth of American craft gin when it was originally created in the mid 1990's at the small Anchor Distillery on Potrero Hill in San Francisco. Hell bent on elevating juniper and citrus flavours, the distilling team forged a new path by crafting each batch of Junipero in a small copper pot still, scouring the globe for the most expressive botanicals, and boldly bottling the spirit at an unfiltered 98.6 proof. Decades later Junipero is still made by hand in San Francisco in the classic London Dry Gin-style. The recipe utilises more than a dozen botanicals in their natural state and is not chill-filtered allowing the botanicals to marry gently and shine through in the finished Gin, while the higher proof of 49.3% ABC brings forward the flavours in cocktails. The predominant flavour is the classic juniper, however the result is a distinctive, intriguing, light, crisp and clean Gin combining a deep and mysterious spiciness with subtle delicacy.
