Franz de la Boë, a Dutch physician and scientist came up with a pretty good recipe for Gin. And not just any recipe for Gin, but the first recipe for Gin. Seeking to discover a diuretic for kidney disease, Boë stumbled upon Gin, and the masses have been going wild for it ever since. Cue Boë , a company that dedicates its drinks to the founding father of the juniper enriched spirits. Based in the Scottish town of Doune, Boë create the perfectly titles Superior Gin, because what could be better than the original? They locally source many of their botanicals, including cassia bark from the Isle of Skye. The distillery also uses the uncommon Carter Head still, that allows for a process of vapour-infusion to take place.
 
Boë Superior Gin lives up to its name. It is overflowing with juniper berries and an undercurrent of spices that just make the taste buds come alive. This Gin rings true of its natural origins, with rich, earthy aromas and delicate floral notes creating a melody in the mouth. There is also a spiced quality to this Gin that enriches and enhances the ripe juniper throughout.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Boë Superior Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Boë Superior 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.

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.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
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.
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.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
