Inverroche Amber Gin
Amber, aromatic, full-bodied. Inverroche Gin Amber convinces with an intense complex bouquet and outstanding quality. For the Craft Gin pioneer selected botanicals from South Africa's fynbos fauna are used, which grow in the coastal region of the Cape. These are unique in taste and form in composition with the sugar cane base an extremely multifaceted gin, which is clearly to be assigned to the New Western Dry Gins, but in texture and aroma reminiscent of a rum.
Due to the post-maceration with tannin-rich plants, Inverroche Gin Amber has a taste similar to a Reserve Gin. These tannins create an earthy base note from which flavours of rooibos, juniper and caramel develop culminating in red citrus before the gin trickles down the palate in a tannic finish. An exceptional gin for gin lovers and friends of special spirits.
INVERROCHE GIN AMBER is a harmonious construct of complex influences from different directions. At first sight it could be mistaken for a reserve gin. It reminds of a rum and yet it is a New Western Dry Gin.
Inverroche Gin Amber owes its tannin-rich finish to the dried fruit of the yellow ice plant, also known as the dune fig in South Africa. They act like oak barrels in the post-maceration, giving the gin an incomparable aroma and aged woody character.
Using special processes that do justice to both the African botanicals and the classic gin spices, a gin is lovingly distilled here that rivals the best gins in the world.
With this gin, Lorna Scott proves once again that she is rightly the icon of South African craft gin. From the picking of the botanicals to the actual distilling process, a lot of loving handwork and skill goes into this gin. This not only benefits the quality of the premium gin, but also sets standards in the sustainability of production and the social responsibility of manufacturing.
The botanicals of the fynbos, a unique flora that is only native to a restricted area in the Cape of South Africa, create a broad bouquet with their aroma. At the same time, the Inverroche community protects this unique habitat by ridding it of invasive plants. Plants that have no place in the fynbos do not go into the gin at Inverroche, but into the fire of the copper still, which is still heated by hand. The result is a Craft Gin that can convince in all aspects.

Intensely aromatic with notes reminiscent of rooibos tea, berries and orange. This gin also has a lot of depth in the smell. A delicate floral side nevertheless provides it with the necessary lightness.
The intense tannins lay a broad base for this gin and are strongly reminiscent of a reserve gin or even rum. Both on the tongue and palate they create a warm earthy aroma. Complex floral notes create a second layer that picks up the underlying tone and adds an almost playful facet. Citrus creates bright highlights. With gentle flavours of sweet toffee apples and caramel from the sugar cane spirit, the gin also has its sweet side, which however remains nobly in the background. In the finish, the tannins of Inverroche Gin Amber develop to their full breadth and turn into an aftertaste of rooibos tea can be perceived.
