Kirkjuvagr Yuletide Gin 40% 70cl
Kirkjuvagr - pronounced 'Kirk-yoo-var' - is produced by the Orkney Distillery, located on the same island as Highland Park and Scapa. Founded in February 2016, their first gin was released in August of that year. The name is the original Viking name for the town of Kirkwall where the distillery in based.
Originally released as an exclusive festive bottling for the Craft Gin Club, Kirkjuvagr Yuletide is now available for the rest of the general public. LOTS of botanicals are used here - juniper, red rose, angelica root, Ramanas rose, Aronia berry, Burnet rose, borage, rose hips, calamus root, pink pepper, cardamom, black pepper, cassia bark, orris root, cinnamon, orange peel, clove, nutmeg, coriander seed, myrrh, frankincense, milk thistle, ginger, liquorice and lemon peel.
It's pleasantly fragrant and warming as you might expect, but unlike quite a few Xmas-themed gins there's a delicate touch here which makes this more than approachable throughout the rest of the year, coming across as a softly spiced gin as opposed to Noddy Holder yelling CHRIIIIIIIIIIISTMAAAAAAAAS!
Which makes this excellent to liven up a Dry Martini, or accentuate the spiced notes of Cocchi Americano in a Vesper Martini. It'll also work REALLY well with ginger ale.
