The 7 Continents Gin has been made with one botanical sourced from each of the world’s seven continents. This includes:
- Juniper from Europe
- Liquorice Root from Africa
- Cinnamon from Asia
- Coriander from Australia
- Angelica Root from North America
- Lime from South America
So far, so good. But if you can count you’ve realised we’re one short: Antarctica. If you know much about Antarctica you’ll know that this is where things got a little tricky. Firstly, it’s a flippin long way away, and chartering a helicopter there is pretty damn expensive (yes, we looked into this). That’s before you get to the problem that very few things grow there, and whatever does grow is restricted from being removed by the Antarctic Treaty of 1959.
So, we employed a little bit of creative thinking and realised that currents of water can freely leave the continent, so we were able to source sea salt harvested from currents of water originating in the Antarctic Ocean – which is added to the gin post-distillation. World:0 World Gin Day Gin:1.
