New 2020 Very Limited Edition 2nd Batch.
The first gin in Ireland to use Hemp as a botanical.
HEMP BREW CO Hemp Gin is a new premium gin that offers a unique flavour experience unlike any other. Hemp Gin is proudly Irish made with real Cannabis Sativa L(Hemp). The hemp flavour is earthy and brings a lingering and surprisingly subtle taste to the back of the palate.
The refreshing taste comes from a unique blend of aromatic botanicals including Juniper, Citrus fruits, Hemp seeds and organic Hemp flowers.
LETS BEGIN: To kick your Hemp Gin tasting experiments off, we recommend you pour some neat over ice to start. The ice will keep some of the heavier savoury notes from the hemp gin in balance while you’re getting to know this for the first time. By all means, work on from this to a neat tasting without the ice, which will make that earthy, savoury flavour become more prominent!
On the nose you’ll find some of the lighter, fragrant, citrus and juniper notes. This extends to your first taste also, where the juniper comes through first at the tip of the tongue. It’s only as the gin sits on your palate for a little while before the hemp follows through at the back of the palate.
The hemp provides lingering earthy flavours of beans and lentils. Rounding out and balancing these is some mild sweetness. We’d call this a savoury gin and as such it stands out from typical Irish gins. This is a good thing as far as we’re concerned and will spice up your collection with added variety.
Once you’ve taken the time to get to know the hemp in your new gin, feel free to move onto a G and T, we know you will anyway! You’ll want to steer clear of any sweet tonics. Your favourite premium dry tonic will be a perfectly decent match for Hemp Gin. If you love experimenting with different tonics is always a good idea to stay away from any that contains Aspartame, this is a whole other conversation.
For your garnish stick with the traditional!
On the cocktail front we have 2 classic options for you that will absolutely nail the savoury notes of this gin. Depending on where your tastes lay, we recommend a classic negroni, or a dirty martini.
If you’ve been waiting for a super gin to try either of these cocktails with for the first time, there’s no better place to start than with Hemp Gin.
