Embark on a Yucatán Adventure with Katun Gin: A Detailed Tasting Experience

The General Wine is thrilled to introduce you to Katun Gin, a unique spirit crafted in the heart of the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico. This artisanal gin promises an explosion of flavour, transporting your taste buds to the vibrant markets and sun-drenched landscapes of this extraordinary region.

A Blend Steeped in Tradition:

Katun Gin is a labour of love, meticulously produced using 17 botanicals. The foundation lies in juniper berries, the cornerstone of any great gin. But Katun takes things a step further, incorporating a symphony of locally sourced ingredients that truly capture the essence of Yucatán. Four distinct chilli peppers lend a subtle warmth, while fresh herbs like rosemary and sage add a touch of earthiness. Three citrus fruits – a nod to the region's tropical bounty – provide a burst of zesty brightness. Spices like cardamom and peppercorns round out the profile, creating a complex and intriguing gin unlike any other.

Unveiling the Flavour Profile:

On the Nose: The first impression of Katun Gin is a captivating interplay of aromas. Juniper berries establish a familiar gin base, but are quickly joined by a chorus of intriguing notes. Hints of citrus peel – think zesty grapefruit and sweet orange – mingle with the earthy warmth of rosemary and sage. A whisper of peppery spice tickles the senses, while the subtle heat of the chilli peppers promises an intriguing warmth on the palate.

On the Palate: The initial sip of Katun Gin is a revelation. The texture is luxuriously smooth, coating the tongue with a silky sensation. The juniper takes centre stage, but is beautifully balanced by the symphony of botanicals. Citrus bursts forth, offering a wave of refreshing tartness that is quickly tempered by the earthy complexity of the herbs. The subtle warmth of the chilli peppers unfolds gradually, adding a touch of piquancy without overpowering the other flavours. Cardamom and peppercorns add a touch of peppery warmth and depth, creating a beautifully layered drinking experience.

The Finish: The finish of Katun Gin is long and lingering, leaving a lasting impression on the palate. The citrus and juniper slowly fade, revealing the subtle heat of the chilli peppers and the earthy tones of the herbs. It's a testament to the expert craftsmanship that each botanical plays its part in harmony, creating a truly unforgettable finish.

Serving Suggestions:

Katun Gin's versatility makes it a perfect base for a variety of cocktails. Here are a few suggestions to help you explore its unique flavour profile:

  • The Yucatán Fizz: Combine 50ml Katun Gin, 20ml fresh lime juice, 15ml agave nectar, and a dash of Angostura bitters in a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled coupe glass topped with soda water. Garnish with a lime wedge and a sprig of fresh mint.
  • The Spicy Paloma: In a highball glass filled with ice, combine 50ml Katun Gin, 15ml grapefruit juice, and a splash of fresh lime juice. Top with grapefruit soda and garnish with a grapefruit wedge and a jalapeño slice (optional, for an extra kick).
