Ophir is a legendary region famed for its wealth and riches which prospered during the reign of King Solomon. The King regularly received cargoes of gold, silver and spices from Ophir and whilst its exact location remains a mystery, it is thought to have been along the Ancient Spice Route – a network of sea routes that link the East with the West.
The routes stretch from the West coast of Japan through the Islands of Indonesia, around India and the Middle East – and from there, across the Mediterranean and into Europe. Traditionally merchants would travel thousands of miles along the route, trading exotic spices and botanicals from distant lands.
OPIHR Spices of the Orient Gin is crafted with a selection of exotic hand-picked botanicals, carefully chosen by OPIHR’s Master Distiller, including Cubeb berries from Indonesia, Black Pepper and Ginger from India, Coriander from Morocco and Orange from Spain.
The botanicals in OPIHR Gin make the journey to their final destination, the oldest distillery in England, where quality gin has been traditionally distilled, using the same London Dry Gin method, since 1761, to produce an exotically spiced gin.
To continue the journey of flavour discovery, OPIHR launched three Regional Edition gins; European – Aromatic Bitters, Arabian – Black Lemon and Far East – Szechuan Pepper. Each are routed in particular regions along the Ancient Spice Route, drawing inspiration from unique and exotic global flavour trends.
The three Regional Editions combine the unmistakable taste of OPIHR London Dry Gin with distinctive botanicals from along the Ancient Spice Route and share our increasingly adventurous exploration of authentic regional flavours that make our gins distinctly unique, bringing new and exciting tastes to the palate.
