Bitter Orange

Conniption Gin meticulously incorporates dried bitter orange peel, specifically from Seville oranges, also known as Curaçao, Bigarade, and Sour orange. These large pieces of peel, cut while still green, infuse the gin with a complex interplay of flavors. The bitter orange contributes a distinct, robust citrus aroma with a nuanced bitter-sweetness, reminiscent of traditional Belgian Witbier (white beer) that is spiced with this very peel. This addition imparts a bright, zesty edge to Conniption Gin, enhancing its overall profile with a sophisticated and slightly tangy twist. Notably used in bitters and the Nordic mulled wine Glögg, this botanical brings a time-honored, versatile flavor that is both resonant and invigorating, adding a layer of depth that complements the gin’s other botanical notes.
