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.
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.
