Jawbox Gin is a single-estate gin made in Echinville Distillery, Belfast, which was the first to be granted a license to distil spirits in Northern Ireland for over 130 years.
The spirit with which the gin is made is created onsite, from Barley grown on the Echinville estate. Eleven botanicals are then added: juniper, coriander, angelica root, orris root, grains of paradise, liquorice root, cubebs, cardamom, cassia quills, black mountain heather and lemon peel. Three of these – a secret three – are vapour distilled to give a balanced, classic gin flavour.
On the nose, fiery cardamom, juniper and a clean, bright citrus. The classic notes come through on the palate, remaining juniper-led but with a little sweetness from the liquorice. Further citrus and a lingering juniper and pine finish.
Jawbox is very much a traditional gin, the flavours stand up well to mixers yet, tasted neat it remains smooth and sippable. Add a sprig of rosemary to a Jawbox G&T to accentuate the juniper’s herbal qualities, or use in classic cocktails, like a French 75 or Negroni.
