A delightful, thoroughly exotic London Dry Gin with a soul with plenty of power.

Tessa and Robin Gerlach are a husband and wife team with a shared passion for African Wildlife. They have both spent a bit of time in the African bush and wanted to create a business that would support them AND their vision of safe elephant habitat. Henry Palmer is the business partner who helped bring their vision to life in 2012. Thus was born Elephant Strength Gin — a small craft contract producer of Gin in the London Dry style, but infused with botanicals from Africa. And 15% of all profits go to support wildlife preservation programs in Africa.

Even their "normal" Gin is elephant strength with an ABV of 45%. Elephant Strength Gin — Navy Strength starts with the same process, but stronger. They macerate fourteen exotic botanicals — including some from Africa that you’ve never had in a Gin before like baobab, buchu, lion’s tail, devil’s claw, and African wormwood. And their Gin gets interesting floral notes from Elderflower, lavender, apple, and Mexican pimento. This is NOT your average London Dry Gin and it has dozens of awards to show for it. And then they crank up the volume to 57% ABV.

Smartass corner:
So far the sales of Elephant Gin have allowed them to contribute more than $70,000 to charities benefitting elephants in Africa.

As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
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.
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.
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.
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.
