Scapegrace Black Gin: A Dive into the World's First Naturally Black Spirit

The General Wine proudly presents Scapegrace Black Gin, a revolutionary spirit unlike any other. Hailing from New Zealand's Southern Alps, Scapegrace Black isn't just about breaking convention; it's about rewriting the rulebook on gin. This isn't your grandfather's juniper-heavy tipple. Scapegrace Black boasts a stunning ebony hue, achieved entirely naturally, and a flavour profile that's as captivating as its colour.

A Naturally Alluring Colour

The first thing that will grab your attention is, of course, the dramatic black colour. Unlike artificially coloured gins, Scapegrace Black achieves its unique shade through a clever blend of botanicals. Aronia berries, with their deep purple pigments, play a starring role. Butterfly pea flower, a vibrant blue botanical commonly used in Southeast Asian teas, also contributes. But the magic doesn't stop there. Saffron, pineapple, and sweet potato add subtle hints of colour and complexity to the mix. The result? A captivating black gin that transforms into mesmerising shades of purple and red when tonic water is added, creating an unforgettable visual spectacle.

A Symphony of Flavours

Beyond its visual intrigue, Scapegrace Black offers a truly unique flavour experience. Juniper, the backbone of any gin, is present but plays a more understated role here. Instead, the spotlight shines on the carefully chosen botanicals. Aronia berries lend a touch of tartness, balanced by the sweetness of pineapple and the earthy richness of sweet potato. Saffron adds a touch of floral elegance, while hints of citrus and spice round out the profile. The overall impression is one of luxurious complexity, with each sip revealing new layers of flavour.

The Tasting Experience

Pour yourself a generous measure of Scapegrace Black Gin into a chilled glass filled with ice. Take a moment to appreciate the captivating colour before leaning in for the first sip. The juniper greets you first, but it's quickly joined by the sweet and tart symphony of the other botanicals. The aronia berry's tartness dances on the tongue, balanced by the sweetness of pineapple and the earthy depth of sweet potato. As the flavours unfurl, a hint of saffron's floral character emerges, along with subtle citrus and spice notes. The finish is long and lingering, leaving you wanting more.
