This gin is the result of the innovation that the Nonesuch team pride themselves on.
Using Hemp Seeds presented us with a real challenge in how to best present the amazing notes of the hero botanical.
After many months and many test distillations we became convinced that the Hemp Seeds really shone best in the company of grain. Once we were aware of that, it became clear that the gin should be made in the Dutch or Belgium style.
In those countries the product would be called a Jenever but it can only be named Jenever if it is made in one of those countries.
This process for making a Jenever involves the production of a malt spirit that is double distilled in our copper pot still. A second spirit (a neutral spirit) is infused with selected botanicals and redistilled.
Our grain mix for the malt spirit comprises Rye, Corn and Barley.
The meticulous combination of each of these elements results in a gin that can be enjoyed neat, over ice or in your favourite cocktail.
The Gin is nutty, earthy and buttery with a finish that lingers enjoyably on the palate.
This definitely lives up to its name. It is absolutely "something without equal". An amazing drop. (Mary Connor, Illawong, NSW)
