Captive Spirits Big Gin
Captive Spirits' founder began distilling gin as a hobby, but years later it's a passion and a business.
Big Gin is exactly what the name promises. It's got an assertive nose full of juniper and pepper, with hints of bright, fresh citrus, vanilla, and even a little menthol. Big Gin's mouthfeel is a bit silky, even thick, as it slides over the tongue, warming the mouth with a powerful burst of juniper. A good dose of spice from cinnamon and cardamom give way to warm citrus and floral notes, bringing to mind fresh cut flowers,. Then it's back to juniper for a dry finish with hints of pepper and menthol from grains of paradise and Tasmania pepperberry.
