A delicious, truffle-infused Gin with a savory, earthy flavor profile.

Up in the mountains, southwest of Strasbourg in the middle of the famous Black Forest, sits The Black Forest Boar Distillery. They officially claim, “Handmade Quality in Our Own Distillery - By Tradition Since 1844.” But we think that probably means a home distillery, not production. But who knows, right? What we have is a small, craft distillery making quality Gin in some very unique ways, and that’s all we need to know.

What makes Boar Premium Dry Gin interesting is the list of botanicals harvested locally in the forest — a closely-held secret. But we have our sources. In addition to expected juniper berries, lemon zest, lavender, and coriander they add thyme and black forest truffles! Yes, you did read that correctly — black forest truffles. We’ve tasted hundreds of Gins and this is the first time we’ve ever seen that ingredient listed in any infusion… anywhere. It’s rare and expensive and coveted by gourmet chefs all over the world. And it adds a savory earthiness to the Gin that’s simply delicious. It’s also won more awards than any other Gin the last two years.

Smartass corner:
Truffles are fungi — similar to mushrooms — that grow completely underground at the base of certain tree species. They are exceptionally valuable — second only to Saffron in rarity and value as a flavoring.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Boar Premium Dry Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Boar Premium Dry Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
