Customer Reviews

The Boxer delivers the classic London dry style of gin with unprecedented vibrancy and complexity. The main balance of flavours is between fresh juniper and a triumvirate of citrus - lemon, orange and bergamot. This extra dry balance is set against a background of rich, woody spice and aromatic floral roots.

The Boxer difference is most apparent on the nose and on the finish, and it stands up exceptionally well to tonic, remaining clear even on heavy dilution. When drunk neat or as a gin martini, the softness and luxurious texture of Boxer gin are most apparent and extremely welcome.

BOTANICALS

  • Bergamot 
    The organic bergamot is a variety of sour orange with a strongly aromatic peel. It provides the distinctive citrus notes in Earl and Lady Grey tea.
  • Juniper indica 
    One of the most ancient rituals of the Himalayas region was the burning of juniper on mountain tops to purify and sanctify the area, while invoking the gods to descend down the ladder of fragrant smoke to open the sky door.
  • Common Juniper
    The berry of the juniper tree is actually a strange miniature pine-cone. They have a floral, pine flavour with floral and cedar overtones.
  • Sweet lemon
    They take particular care ensuring that only the very top layer of the peel and none of the bitter pith is used in Boxer gin.
  • Sweet Seville orange
    The peel of an unusual orange grown in Andalucia. It has the flavour of the classic orange marmalade but none of its usual bitterness.
  • Angelica root
    Angelica root is sweetly aromatic, it is widely used as a herbal remedy to aid digestion. Angelica also helps lock the other flavours into Boxer Gin.
  • Orris root
    The slowly dried root of the Florentine Iris which is then ground to a powder. It has a perfume redolent of violets and wood but taste reminiscent of raspberry. In gin orris helps bind all the flavours together.
  • Liquorice root
    Liquorice root is naturally sweet with a distinctive aniseed flavour, it the raw ingredient in the production of liquorice sweets.
  • Cinammon
    Cinnamon is the inner bark of the true cinnamon tree, it provides the warm, spicy base notes of Boxer Gin.
  • Cassia Bark
    Cassia is a varietal of cinnamon that comes from China, it has a less sweet, more woody flavour than true cinnamon.
  • Nutmeg
    Nutmeg is the seed of the nutmeg tree it has a rich aroma with a sweet, warm peppery flavour that adds balance to the citrus notes in Boxer Gin.
  • Coriander
    Dried seed of the coriander plant has a warm citrus flavour with mild floral notes. In Boxer Gin coriander seed links our cool citrus top notes to our warm spice base notes creating balance.

 

THE DISTILLATION PROCESS

Copper distilled wheat spirit
The first step in the preparation of Boxer Gin is the careful distillation of a soft, pure wheat spirit. They use the highest quality grain from the east of England. This grain is fermented and distilled using a combination of a modern tower still and a veteran copper pot still. The result is a gentle, soft spirit with a natural grain sweetness and subtle flavours of grass and hay.

Classic London dry process
The next step is to distill a classic London Dry Gin. They steep carefully sourced botanicals in a copper distilled wheat spirit, to allow the flavours to be released into it. After an eight hour maceration they transfer the mix into “Angela” – a 108 year old copper pot still – which is gently heated until the spirit is turned into vapour and then condensed back into a liquid. This process fixes the botanical flavours into Boxer gin.

The boxer difference
In order to deliver an added vibrancy to Boxer Gin they have created a new process in the production of the gin. Uniquely, they separately steam distill fresh, wild juniper berries to extract their essential oil. This gentle 20 hour process is carried out at source in the Himalaya, capturing each and every delicate nuance of flavour with absolute clarity. Similarly, they also extract a zingy raw citrus essential oil by cold pressing fresh bergamot peel.
