WONDROUSLY CRAFTED FROM GIN AND OTHER LOVELIES
Pomp & Whimsy brings modern sensibilities to the tradition of gin making, by infusing classically distilled gin with a natural, delightfully flavorful botanical liqueur.
The result is a highly refined, yet playfully sensorial spirit, that is both graceful by itself, and effortlessly dressed, up or down.
It's gin, reimagined.
Made from scratch from a select blend of 16 natural and whole ingredients, including juniper, coriander, angelica, grapefruit, bitter orange, cucumber, lychee, raspberry, lavender and jasmine pearls.
First a classically distilled gin is crafted, infusing the florals, botanicals and citruses into a neutral spirit base, and redistilled to create a highly refined and elegant gin. In a second round of infusion, exotic fruits, spices and more citrus are left to immerse in the gin for up to 10 days. The final spirit is then twice filtered for a clean finish, while carefully preserving the rich natural color and aroma.
Fruit-floral-botanical. Light citrus and exotic fruits on the start, evolving into a dry, warm spice finish, with a familiar suggestion of citrusy juniper on the tail. Subtly sweet and eminently quaffable.
We like to think of Pomp & Whimsy Gin Liqueur as an old fashioned spirit, with a modern soul.
Sweetened juniper based spirits have been used for medicinal purposes since medieval times, and recipes for gin cordials can be found in many 19th century spirits books, including “Cocktail” Bill Boothby’s “American Bartender” published in 1891.
Simply put, a gin liqueur is a gin that has been further infused with fruits or botanicals and/or lightly sweetened to retain the flavor characteristics of a gin.
Gin liqueurs are delightful sipped by themselves, topped with bubbles, or substituted for gin or aromatic liqueurs in traditional cocktails.
