Artisanal Lebanese Gin from Rechmaya Distillery.
Short for Juniper, JUN, the artisanal Lebanese gin is grown and bottled in the village of Rechmaya, Lebanon.
JUN tastes like 9 locally used botanicals that have been lovingly hand-picked and combined to create a complex nostalgic character not quite like anything else: Organic Lebanese juniper (excelsa), coriander, ginger, galangal mastic, rosemary, bay leaf, orange, lemon.
It begins with the sweet aromas of mastic, blending with the summery smells of localy grown rosemary, orange & lemon, which linger on the lips for that first delicious sip. But it doesn’t end there…. There’s a spicy finish of ginger, galangal, coriander and bay leaves that never borders on aggressive, while the wild juniper excelsa from the Bekaa mountains, signs off with the distinct kiss of nostalgic native flavours. Everything contributes to the cheerfulness.
