Juniper

Juniper berries, meticulously sourced from the verdant hills of Bulgaria and Albania, are the soul of Conniption Gin's unique profile. Contrary to the common misconception that juniper imparts an astringent or excessively piney flavor, these berries bestow a harmonious blend of crisp, earthy pine with a nuanced peppery undertone, reminiscent of ancient, serene forests. The history of juniper in gin and apothecary is rich and storied, dating back to the 17th century. Revered for its medicinal qualities, juniper was believed to remedy various ailments, from digestive issues to infections. This lineage of both healing and taste infuses our gin with a legacy that transforms each sip into an exploration of flavor and history, devoid of harshness, yet full of depth and subtlety.
