Procera African Juniper Gin

Procera

750 ml | 44% ABV
Gin

Maker Notes

At the heart of our recipe is Juniperus Procera, the only species of juniper indigenous to the southern hemisphere. Procera means “tall” in Latin and when you walk through the Procera forest of the Kenya highlands, you understand why straightaway, as you’re dwarfed by these majestic giants. Native to the highlands of Kenya, and growing only above 1500 metres above sea level, this is what makes African juniper so special. Whereas common juniper grows in temperate zones and receives only summer sun for three months a year, our Procera berries receive about seven hours of daily sunlight all year round. Situated at 2200 metres, the Kijabe forest where we harvest our juniper receives even stronger, more direct sun. Hence a richness of flavour and essential oils that only the equatorial sun can provide.

We partner with the Kijabe Forest Trust, an organisation founded to protect the native forests of Kijabe from poaching of both animals and trees. They in turn work with the local communities to collect the Procera berries once they are fully ripe at the end of the short rains around the middle of the year. We know it is time to start harvesting the juniper when the local family of baboons start veraciously devouring them due to their appetising sweetness.

The Procera berries had never been used commercially before we started harvesting them and hence we’ve had to learn everything from scratch. From where the best berries grow, to when to harvest them and how to process them, every step has been a journey of discovery. It is crucial not to let the berries ferment once collected and they must be air dried for about a week before they can be flash frozen to maintain optimal freshness and brightness for distilling throughout the entire year.

By showing the local communities that each tree has a direct monetary value each year, not only are more trees being planted but there is also a reduction in the felling of the old trees. We hope that the world comes to realise that the unparalleled sun and terroir of Kijabe creates a better juniper berry with which to make gin. We dream that in the future, “African Dry Gin” will become a designated category which: must be distilled in Africa; must use African Juniper; must use only botanicals grown on the continent. If this dream were to be realised and there were 10 more Kenyan distilleries, the future of these magnificent juniper forests would not only be assured, but the reforestation of their old habitat across the entire Kenya highlands would become much more probable.

Platinum medal winner!
We’re proud to announce that New Deal Old Tom Gin was awarded the best-in-class Platinum Medal in Sip Magazine’s 2021 Best of the Northwest spirits competition. 

What is Old Tom Gin? There are no exact rules but Old Tom is a gin that is often barrel aged and lightly sweetened. Before the advent of the column still, spirits were often much cruder and it was common to add sweetening agents to make them more palatable. And palatable this gin was indeed! Before London Dry Gin stole the show, Old Tom Gin was the gin of choice in 18th century England. In fact, it was so popular that it led to a gin craze that was seen as problematic in the eyes of the government. Several prohibitive laws were passed to slow consumption but this only drove the gin scene underground.

How did Old Tom Gin get its name? Well, like the history of many cocktails and spirits, nobody knows the exact answer but there are several theories. Some think an old tom cat fell into a vat of gin. Yikes. Others say that two men named Tom worked at a distillery, one young and one old, and that Old Tom was the one that invented this style of gin. The most fun theory seems to center around a wooden cat. Since gin was nearly outlawed, pubs secretly selling this ‘mothers ruin’ would alert interested parties to its availability by putting a wooden plaque of a cat outside their building. After a coin was deposited through a slot in the wall, the bartender would slyly pour a shot through a pipe out to the patron. This is the story we like to believe.

Enjoy it on ice with an orange twist or in a number of classic Old Tom cocktails.

Sipsmith V.J.O.P. Gin

Sipsmith

750 ml | 57.3% ABV
Gin

Situated in a former microbrewery on a west London street in England, Sipsmith Independent Spirits Distillery is home to London's first new gin in nearly two centuries. The distillery was founded by a triumvirate Sam Galsworthy (who previously worked at a microbrewery), Fairfax Hall (a former Diageo representative) and Jared Brown (a master distiller who has crafted new spirits in Vietnam, Norway, Sweden and the United States) with the goal of producing a traditional yet authentic craft gin. Sipsmith London Dry Gin is crafted using ten carefully selected botanicals, including Macedonian juniper berries, Bulgarian coriander seed, French angelica root, Spanish liquorice root, Italian orris root, Spanish ground almond, Chinese cassia bark, Madagascan cinnamon, Sevillian orange peel and Spanish lemon peel. "The best botanicals make the best gin no way around it," says Brown, who has been distilling spirits for over a dozen years. Once the botanicals arrive at the distillery, they are distilled through a copper-pot still named Prudence (Prudence is able to produce approximately 280 bottles of gin each day). "Prudence is the first copper still installed in London in nearly 200 years. We designed her with Germany's oldest distillery producers, Christian Carl a small, family business that has been crafting stills since 1869. She is the only one like this in the world." The still is designed with a bespoke pot, column still and carter head, which makes it incredibly versatile. After the botanicals have been distilled through Prudence, the gin is brought to proof with water sourced from the Lydwell Spring before being bottled by hand. Sipsmith London Dry Gin V.J.O.P is a desire by Sipsmith to create the ultimate gin for juniper lovers. This powerful overproof spirit is an amplified take on their London Dry, using triple the amount of juniper berries, and crafted by macerating the juniper berries in warm spirit overnight to burst the skins and release the essential oils. Juniper is the lead instrument in this botanical orchestra, enhanced by the increase in proof which is necessary when increasing the flavor profile in a gin. At 57.7% ABV, this juniper-forward gin uses triple the amount of juniper berries to their London Dry Gin.

Uncle Val's Peppered Gin

Uncle Val's

750 ml | 45% ABV
Gin

In 1895, Samuele Sebastiani emigrated to the United States from Tuscany. A stonemason by trade, he quarry-mined the hills of Sonoma, California for cobblestones that were used to build the streets of San Francisco. He worked long hours, lived frugally and saved carefully, and in 1904, purchased enough land in Sonoma to open the doors to Sebastiani Winery. Sebastiani Winery was the only winery in Sonoma to remain open during Prohibition, and, as the Great Depression set in, Samuele carried out major construction projects in Sonoma including building an ice-skating rink and hotel in order to create jobs. Today, August Sebastiani, Samuel's great-grandson, is the President of 35 Maple Street Distillery, the makers of Uncle Val's Restorative Gin. The gin is named after Vaerio Cecchetti, Sebastiani's favorite uncle and a retired physician near Lucca, Italy. "In addition to being a highly regarded doctor, Uncle Val is a great cook and avid gardener," says Sebastiani. While Uncle Val's Botanical Gin is crafted from a botanical bill composed of five ingredients (juniper, lemon, sage, lavender and cucumber), Uncle Val's Peppered Gin uses only four botanicals: juniper, red bell pepper, black pepper and pimento. Sebastiani uses immersion bags (think big tea bags) in order to infuse the gin with the flavors from the botanicals. The immersion bags are steeped in the gin for several hours, although some remain in the gin longer in order to impart a heavier aroma and flavor. The juniper adds a classic element of tartness and crispness to the gin. From there, Uncle Val's Peppered Gin becomes something entirely its own. The roasted red peppers add a unique earthiness, while the black pepper adds a clear spice that's balanced by a savoriness gleaned from the pimento. After the gin is distilled five times over, Sebastiani's team filters it using carbon and lava rock (or pumice), which has a porous density that's perfect for filtering gin. Then, the gin is brought to proof using naturally sweet spring water from the Cascade Mountains before being bottled and labeled by hand. "Gin was invented in the Netherlands by a doctor, Franciscus Sylvius, who was a professor of medicine in Leyden, Holland, back in the 1650s," Sebastiani says. "He was trying to find a cure-all for kidney and stomach disorders, so he infused juniper berries into distilled spirits. The elixir became so popular that distillers began commercial production and by the end of the 1680, the Dutch were exporting more than 10 million gallons of gin each year. Gin is the only spirit that started out as a medicine, so it's fitting that we named ours after Uncle Val." Uncle Val's Peppered Gin is truly unlike any other gin on the market.

Empress 1908 Elderflower Rose Gin

Empress 1908

750 ml | 42.5% ABV
Gin

Maker Notes

Following in the footsteps of our celebrated Empress 1908 Indigo Gin, Empress 1908’s Elderflower Rose expression pays homage to our home city of Victoria, British Columbia. Lovingly referred to as the ‘City of Gardens’, Victoria’s flowers bloom nearly year-round, offering plenty of inspiration for our distillers. Empress Elderflower Rose Gin is handcrafted in copper pot stills and features a bright floral bouquet of nine unique premium botanicals. Distinguished by its surprisingly understated floral palate complemented by citrus and spice notes and a hint of sweetness, Empress Elderflower Rose Gin brings a taste of our home to your next cocktail creation.

Vibrant red rose petals and black carrot imbue Empress Elderflower Rose Gin with its jewel-toned hue. Inspired by the multicoloured blossoms that bring our hometown to life each year, the spirits all-natural pigmentation effortlessly elevates the presentation of any cocktail creation. No artificial colours or stabilizers are used, so while the flavour will last forever, the unique ruby colour will fade over time. Fading is accelerated by exposure to sunlight, so we recommend that you experience each bottle within a year of purchase and store it in a cool, dark place. After all, a gin this beautiful is meant to be enjoyed at its best.

Empress Elderflower Rose Gin marries nine vibrant botanical elements to create its one-of-a-kind flavour palate. In addition to juniper berries, you will taste the gentle sweetness of elderflower, a bright burst of orange and a touch of floral rose and lavender. The gin’s colour is all-natural, from the addition of red rose petals and black carrot. Learn more about Empress Elderflower Rose Gin’s ingredients and raise a toast to the delicious cocktails to come!

They sought adventure, mischief and inspiration in nature. Bobby Finan gravitated towards the craft-distilling scene in NYC, and in 2013 he got his first start in the industry at the Cooperstown Distillery. After relocating to his hometown Buffalo in 2014 he met business partner, Sean Insalaco, and by July 2015, Tommyrotter Distillery was up and running. In the spring, summer and fall months, their multi-story distillery is open to visitors. Their beautiful modern glass-walled mezzanine tasting room gives a unique view of the entire production process. At Tommyrotters their production process is simple yet quite meticulous. No frills. No automation. Just handcrafted spirits, distilled batch by batch in small copper stills. Their spirits are distilled from American farm-grown grains.
