This is a richly intense citrus and spice-led gin with concentrated lemon notes. Inspired by the Iranian love for Persian black lemons, or ‘loomi’ (actually sun-dried limes), which add a unique tangy and earthy flavour to Middle Eastern chutneys and stews. Black lemons play a central part in Persian cooking thanks to their sweet citrus flavour and the lack of bitters that other lemons bring – due to the drying process which is similar to sundried tomatoes – and gives the lemons their curious colour.
The powerful bursts of Persian black lemons are heightened further by the zesty citrus flavours of Timut peppers, making the Arabian Edition a carefully crafted and perfectly balanced London Dry gin, elevated through the marriage of citrus and spice.
Aroma: A richly intense Arabian citrus and spice-led gin. It has smooth soft perfume notes from our fundamental juniper core, but balanced with concentrated citrus notes of Black Lemons, galangal and Timut peppers.
Taste: A smooth, rounded London Dry Gin; soft camphor, sharp burst of green citrus notes with some sweetness, which creates a warm mouth feel that lingers but does not increase in intensity.
OPIHR spiced gin is inspired by a love of travel and discovery, so in celebration of this we introduce The OPIHR Drinks Atlas; a curation of OPIHR cocktails, each designed to celebrate one of our ten botanicals and the location from which we source them along the Ancient Spice Route.
