The Distillation of Opihr
Joanne Moore, the world’s first female Gin Master Distiller, created Opihr – pronounced (O-peer) – and uses hand-picked botanicals, which give it such an intense exotic flavour and epitomises the Orient: spicy cubeb berries from Indonesia, black pepper from India, spicy cumin seeds from Turkey and coriander from Morocco.
Opihr is distilled by the oldest gin distillers in England which is where quality gin has been traditionally distilled using the same London Dry Gin method since 1761. The Master Distiller then infuses the botanicals in high quality spirit in copper pot stills, using over 250 years of tradition and expertise, to create a unique spiced gin.
The Name Opihr
The name Opihr comes from a legendary region famed for its wealth and riches which prospered during the reign of King Solomon. The King regularly received cargoes of gold, silver and spices from Opihr and whilst its exact location remains a mystery, it is thought to have been in the Orient, along the Ancient Spice Route.
Ophir Oriental Spiced Gin makes a refreshingly different Gin and Tonic garnished with orange for a classic drink and for the more adventurous, it can be mixed with ginger ale or in a Red Snapper, a gin-based Bloody Mary.
Opihr encapsulates the spirit of adventure and is a truly individual present. It has won 7 international awards since 2013, including a Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the highest award of Master in The Gin Masters.
Nose: A rich Oriental spiced gin with a smooth perfume and sharp bursts of citrus. Key notes of cumin and cardamom provide a warm earthy background balanced with the grapefruit peel.
Taste: Soft camphor, some sweetness and oriental spices create a warm mouth feel that lingers but does not increase in intensity.
Finish: Long length with soft cracked black pepper and spice.
