The nose is piney as a result of the juniper. The added angelica gives this gin body and an earthy quality which is complemented by pimento pepper. The gin strikes a fine balance with the more delicate botanicals, such as lavender and lemon peel, ensuring smoothness. The finish is citrussy, clean and extremely well balanced.
The story of Broken Heart gin is about remembering a friend. Two German friends, Joerg and Bernd, were living in Queenstown on the South Island of New Zealand. Both of them were philosophers and Master Distillers, and set out to make a superb gin together. Sadly, Bernd unexpectedly fell ill and tragically passed away. To commemorate his friend and to mark a new beginning, Joerg released Broken Heart gin. The aim was to make a perfumed and crisp gin to drink at dusk, cherishing those ‘moments in between’. We liked this gin upon first sniff for its aromatic complexity, intensity and clean finish.
The suggested serving is with Fever-Tree tonic and a twist of orange over ice..
