The story of South African Inverroche Gin began in 2007, when mother and son duo Lorna and Rohan Scott, began experimenting with a 1.7L copper pot still affectionately known as “Mini Meg”. Working through various ideas, learning different techniques and allowing the process to grow organically, four years of enthusiastic tinkering and research ensued.
One of the key areas of development was to truly understand which botanicals could be used to create their trilogy of Gins, in particular, how best harness their key ingredient, Fynbos.
Inverroche Classic Gin –
The Fynbos Inverroche uses in their Classic Gin is specifically derived from the Limestone area Fynbos. The predominant flavours in this Fynbos are citrus lead, with a subtle floral character. On the nose, there is a very green, almost grassy juniper note amongst a bouquet of soft flowers.
The gin is complex, with angelica and cassia conspiring to bring depth to the floral arrangement, while coriander and cardamom bring warmth.
