Spirit of Hven Distillery Tasting Notes

Posted: May 1, 2014 in Gin, Scandinavian Gin

Spirit of Hven Organic Gin 40%

A handcrafted gin from the Swedish island of Hven, situated in the Öresund Strait between Denmark and Sweden. It is an organic wheat gin that is both pot distilled and oak matured with botanicals such as juniper, grains of paradise, citrus, Sichuan pepper, aniseed, and guinea pepper.

Tasted: Feb 2014

Oily aromas of orange peel, soft juniper and a touch of smoke. With time a light botanical note freshens.  

The palate seems a little underpowered with soft, sugar coated citrus peel and hints of juniper and bitter spices. Good length with a slightly soapy juniper finish. Conclusion: Distinctly average.
