ClemenGold Gin is named for the signature flavor of the South African Mandarin Orange also called a Clemengold. With the orange and the signature juniper, it includes botanicals of orange zest, cinnamon, honey, almond, angelica, orris root, and coriander. This strikes us as a classic dry style of gin with citrus forward notes familiar to enthusiasts of gins from the Mediterranean.
Hope on Hopkins Distillery was founded on the elusive dream of many white-collar workers toiling in cubicle walls: Lucy Beard and Leigh Lisk "abandoned" London to found the distillery in Cape Town, South Africa for the purpose of making gin. It is based upon the Mediterranean style of gin, which features more floral and citrus notes than the classic London dry styles of heavy juniper flavors.
