The Hot Gin.
Greenall’s is still one of the top Gin producers in England, they make a wide variety of Gins and other distilled spirits, and have been doing so since … geeze … since Methuselah wore diapers (1760). That’s more than 250 years of Gin-making know-how. Greenall’s is a part of the De Vere group and is a major contract distiller for Quintessential Brands, which owns a ton of spirit brands, far too many to list here. What matters is that one of those brands includes…
Opihr Oriental Spiced London Dry Gin is the salsa of Gin - a 40% ABV lemon-pepper bomb going off next to a pine tree during Sunday dinner in Mumbai… in a glass! So, is that good? Well, yes, but don’t come knocking at this door unless you want something different. If you are in the mood for a buttoned-up shirt and bowler hat, this is not the Gin for you. But if you have a hidden wild side, or if you are secretly wearing red-striped boxer shorts under that three-piece suit, then welcome to the party.
Opihr is different. So let’s set this table of infused botanicals … cubeb berries from Malaysia, tellicherry black peppercorns from India, Turkish cumin, coriander from Morocco, Italian juniper, and orange zest from Spain. Make no mistake … this is NOT a manhood-testing pain-fest. It’s as much of a London Dry Gin as any, but with a different attitude.
