    Boe Violet Gin

    Posted by Carlee Wilson

    Franz de la Boë was a world-renowned professor who invented the world’s first gin in 1658.

    While he was looking to create a medicinal tonic, he took clear grain spirit and infused it with hand-picked juniper berries.

    In keeping with the Professor’s traditional method, Boë gin is lovingly created in small batches under the watchful eye of their talented Master Distiller.

    Boë Superior Gin is made to exactly 41.5% alcohol volume using the finest natural spring water from the pristine glens of Scotland.

    Rare, hand-picked botanicals and spices are infused in the finest neutral grain spirit, exposing the full flavours of triple filtered Boë Superior Gin.

    Juniper berries and their flavor-some oils are at the centre of Boë gin distillation. In addition, there’s the aromatic coriander and angelica, spicy ginger and cassia bark.

    Warmth and flavour come from the grains of paradise. Orange and lemon peel deliver a hint of citrus.

    The result of this delicate recipe and process? A high-class gin, with extraordinarily balanced citrus and smoothness.

    The addition of violets, brings the spirit up to a whole new level and sees the evolution of a stunning gin, with a light, delicate taste and beautiful colour and aroma.

    What can you expect?

    On the nose: Enjoy a soft burst of floral violet, lavender and subtle sweet berries

    On the Palate: faint juniper, apple and blackcurrant, closing with a medium finish reminiscent of apple and blackcurrant cordial.
