Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Krobar Butterfly Pea Gin commands attention with its striking, natural blue hue, a result of the Butterfly Pea flower infusion. When mixed with acidic elements like lemon juice, it undergoes a fascinating transformation to shades of violet and magenta, offering not just a taste but a visual experience.
The olfactory profile is a rich tapestry of traditional gin botanicals like juniper, coriander, and citrus peel, seamlessly interwoven with the unique floral notes imparted by the Butterfly Pea flower. A subtle backdrop of herbaceous and earthy tones adds complexity and depth.
The first sip envelops the palate with the crispness of juniper, which quickly broadens into a bouquet of citrus and spice. This traditional gin profile is lifted by the Butterfly Pea flower, adding a unique vegetal layer to the botanical blend. Mid-palate, the gin takes on a rounded texture, slightly creamy, punctuated by notes of peppercorn and cardamom.
The finish is long, clean, and remarkably smooth given its 45% ABV. There is a lingering floral sweetness, which serves as a poetic conclusion to the gin's complex flavor profile.
Though rich in botanicals, the gin has a surprisingly smooth and oily mouthfeel. It manages to be both invigorating and refined, making it ideal for sipping neat or as the foundation for cocktails that demand a gin of extraordinary caliber.
