Ungava Gin takes its name from the region of Northern Canada where it is made, where the Tundra meets the seas. Using just six botanicals, all of which are hand-picked from the local region during the very fleeting summer season, Ungava is a bright yellow Gin which really stands out on a shelf.
Ungava is made with Nordic juniper, cloudberry, crowberry, Labrador tea, Arctic blend and rose hips, the latter of which gives the Gin its bright coloring.
You’ll notice that, juniper aside, there’s a lack of any traditional botanicals (no coriander seed, no orris root, no cardamom). Instead the distiller has captured a truly local flavor.
