Elephant Dry Gin: A 50cl Bottle of Responsibility and Refreshment

The General Wine Company is proud to offer Elephant Dry Gin, a premium spirit that delivers a classic London Dry experience while giving back to a worthy cause. This 50cl bottle boasts a well-balanced flavour profile perfect for gin enthusiasts and cocktail lovers alike.

Aromatic Adventure: A Blend of Botanical Delights

Elephant Dry Gin opens with a crisp juniper aroma, the defining characteristic of any great gin. This juniper foundation is complemented by a subtle citrus medley, with hints of lemon and grapefruit peeking through. Peppery notes, likely from coriander seeds, add a touch of warmth, while underlying floral whispers offer a hint of elegance. As the gin settles in the glass, deeper, earthy tones emerge, hinting at the presence of angelica root and orris root. The overall impression is one of freshness, complexity, and perfect balance.

On the Palate: A Journey for the Taste Buds

The first sip of Elephant Dry Gin delivers a burst of juniper flavour, invigorating the palate. The citrus notes from the nose translate beautifully, offering a refreshing zing that cuts through the juniper's intensity. The peppery warmth from the coriander builds subtly, adding a touch of complexity without overwhelming the other botanicals. The floral hints from the aroma become more apparent on the taste buds, offering a touch of sweetness that complements the dry character of the gin. As the gin lingers on the tongue, the earthy notes from the angelica and orris root make their presence known, providing a satisfying finish that is both warming and slightly bitter.

The Elephant in the Room: A Spirit with a Cause

Elephant Dry Gin isn't just about exceptional taste; it's about making a positive impact. With 15% of their profits dedicated to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, every bottle purchased contributes to the vital work of rescuing and rehabilitating orphaned elephants in Kenya.

The Perfect Serve: Unlocking the Potential of Elephant Dry Gin
