Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin 700ml


Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin 700ml

Having been an outlier in the gin category for a long time (there are still comparatively few overtly spiced gins) Ophir Gin expanded its range in 2019 when its flagship was joined by three others. The European Edition contains cascarilla bark mixed with fragrant myrrh, creating a fragrantly spiced profile, while the Arabian Edition blends black lemon and timut pepper to create an intense citrus and spice-led mix. The third, the Opihr Far East Edition, combines rich flavours of Szechuan pepper and smoky ajwain lending it a warm mouthfeel.

Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin was initially launched by Quintessential Brands in October 2013, the gin is made at the G&J Distillery and backed by their experienced team.

On the nose, Opihr Gin has a heady spice mix with cardamom very much raising its hand above the rest of the class. There’s also a cheeky, zesty citrus making itself known. While there is certainly a spiced explosion to taste, there is also a discernible sweetness from the orange in Opihr Gin. Cubeb dominates the finish with its deliciously exotic and characterful notes of cracked pepper and light violet. 

Alc: 40%
