Jawbox Small Batch Gin
The brainchild of Belfast-barman, Gerry White, Jawbox Small Batch Gin is named in honour of the ever-celebrated Belfast sink, colloquially known as the ‘Jawbox’. The heart of the kitchen, the big sink, was where the craic was heard and unforgettable stories were shared. Inspired by the magnificent industrial era of Northern Irish history when ordinary men and women put Belfast on the map for hard graft and craft, Jawbox is a modern expression of this traditional, impressive and uncompromising character. The Ards Peninsula, Co. Down is home to both The Jawbox Distillery and the fields where its grain is grown and harvested. It is here where things are done the hard way, for the right reasons.
The gin is distilled very slowly in a traditional copper pot still for the best quality spirit and maximum influence from its eleven botanicals, after they have steeped overnight in the warmed spirit. While most of the botanicals are ‘steep and boil’, three of the botanicals use the vapour extraction method to preserve their delicate flavour and aroma.
On the nose, Jawbox is an impressive experience of bold juniper and pine, balanced with a gentle touch of sweet coriander and clean citrus. More complex on the palate, citrus and juniper develop into peppery, earthy Angelica root, finishing with citrus and lingering juniper and pine.
