Swedish distillery Purity has revealed its take on the classic London Dry with the release of its Organic Craft Nordic Dry Gin.
The latest expression maintains the integrity of a juniper-forward gin while pushing boundaries with a unique blend of juniper, thyme, basil, coriander, lingonberries, blueberries, lavender, cardamom and angelica to create a long-lasting, explosive flavour on the palate.
“We set out to create a gin with a long flavour profile that lasts in the mouth,” says Purity’s Master Blender Mathias Tönnesson. “When you taste our new Nordic Dry, a wave of flavour rushes over your taste buds and lingers there, allowing you to savour the complex collection of herbs and berries.”
To give the gin its smoothness, Purity has used its ultra-smooth 34 Edition vodka as the base. The gin is then redistilled to allow the flavours from the botanicals to fully develop. Slowly blending basil and thyme with juniper before overlaying the organic local botanicals creates a truly Nordic spirit that proudly reflects the brand’s Swedish heritage.
“When you create a gin based on a classic recipe, you have to begin with the essentials and get those absolutely right,” says Tönnesson. “By adding thyme & basil to the blend, we create a lush flavour profile that makes our Nordic Dry the perfect choice to sip neat or use as a base for a basil sour, basil smash, and other herbal cocktails.”
Amid the aromatic notes and dry floral sweetness, the distinctive juniper is recognizable from the first sip. To create a long-lasting, explosive flavour on the palate, the Juniper is followed by a mélange of berries and herbaceous essences, resulting in a gin that is smooth, flavorful and complex.
