Sacred orris gin is the perfect gin for lovers of violets and floral flavours. Sacred Spirits recommend using it to make a classic Aviation cocktail. Though many versions are made with violet liqueur, with orris root gin there's no need to add it!
Orris root is the root of the iris flower. Freshly harvested it doesn’t seem like much. But when left to dry for 5 years, it develops sweet, powdery, floral rose-violet notes that have been highly sought after in the worlds of gin distilling and perfume making alike.
Enjoy sacred orris gin with the best tonic water you can find, and garnish with a pared slice of lemon peel if you like. It’s also great in champagne cocktails, cocktails with cherries or cherry liqueurs, and anything that benefits from a hint of florals.
The Sacred Spirits distillery was born in 2008, in a room in founder Ian’s house in Highgate, North London. Ian was drawn to science and distillation from an early age, and experimented with distilling wine before moving onto gin. Together with his partner, Hilary, Ian began putting together his own distillery. He taught himself how to distil botanicals, and even commissioned bespoke glassware from York to give him complete control over the distillation process.
The first batch of gin Ian made included juniper, cardamom, nutmeg and the unusual addition of frankincense. The Latin name for frankincense is Boswellia sacra – and this gave the Sacred brand its name.
