Canaima

Canaima bottle

70cl, 47% ABV

Canaima is a delicious 47% ABV gin created to support the Amazon rainforest and its native population. 

Created from ten Amazonian botanicals, sustainably sourced in the rainforest, one botanical from the distillery region in Venezuela, and eight traditional gin botanicals, all the botanicals are individually macerated and re-distilled in a 500 litre copper pot still to create a truly small batch gin.

Perfect in a refreshing highball, with pink grapefruit soda and a squeezed lime wedge.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Well-balanced citrus zestiness and earthy spice lead – the dual nature of juniper on a glass. Damp, leady notes fill the gaps in between bursts of fruit, with a base of soft spice hiding at the back.

Palate

The citrus is back, but savoury herbal notes build and overtake it. A flash of sweet orange and tropical fruit spirals out from the centre, with tingling, peppery spice as a counterpoint.

Finish

Earthy spice lingers, with sweet fruit slowly fading.

Comment

A gin that starts by deconstructing the flavours of juniper before leaping headfirst into its tropical heritage.
