CATNIP Gin Series No. 1 - Phoenix Honey Orchard
This special label of CATNIP GIN celebrates not just everything about gin, but also the beauty of traditional premium Chinese tea! Given our passion in Chinese tea, we have decided to use some of our favorite and rare teas that we love as one of the main ingredients of our latest gin. For this issue, the star of the show is Phoenix Honey Orchard (鳳凰單欉玉蘭香), a tea that is lightly roasted and fermented to give off a floral fragrance and fruity palate, with a hint of peach and tropic fruits, which ends with a mild roast. On top of it we added three other ingredients in juniper berries, grapefruit peel and ginger, creating a one-of-a-kind profile that sees the elegance and fragrance of the tea perfectly harmonize with the spices and freshness of the rest of the ingredients.
