ELG Gin No2, 50cl
Master distiller Henrik Elsner, who has started a production of Danish gin, has gone against the tide and given birth to a series of gins, which in all its crystal clear simplicity contains only three botanicals.
An “Old Tom” gin, ELG GIN No. 2 is based on the same three distillates as ELG No.1, to which is added an alcoholic extract of juniper, which gives the gin its unique dark colour, it contains a variety of flavour in addition to juniper and a possesses a slight sweetness. The extract is produced by soaking dried juniper berries in 50 % pure wheat alcohol for four weeks. The result is an extract containing a wide variety of the flavours and sugars, which in ELG GIN No. 1 is removed by the distillation process. It contains 46.3 % alcohol.
Drink it clean, “on the rocks” or enjoy it in drinks with ginger beer such as Gin & Stormy.
