Ghost release Juniper Gin – raise questions of pronounciation
Ghost release Juniper Gin – raise questions of pronounciation.
When Swedish rock behemoths Ghost turn their attention to the world of drinks, they do so in classic manner. Juniper Gin, flavoured with cilantro is a highly drinkable gin with fresh, fruity notes. However, barely had the artwork for the new gin been revealed before discussions ran high on the internet: is it a juniper gin, or is it the works of a darker spirit – as in a Lucifer Gin?
Whichever way one chooses to read the label, the fact remains: Ghost have released a top class gin, impressing connoisseurs and fans alike. The distinct flavours of juniper and cilantro give it a unique character, making it a perfect base for a gin & tonic, or sipped neat, on its own.
Referencing the historic and cultural meaning of blood on the bottle’s label, it comes as little surprise using cilantro in the flavouring. Through the ages cilantro has been used as a natural medicament to help balance blood pressure among other things.
Produced in Sweden at Götene Spritfabrik AB, Cardinal Copia enjoyed the thorough process of choosing the right flavours to get the balance between light and darkness perfected.
Sari H Wilholm at Brands For Fans says:
— Ghost have become a worldwide phenomenon and a force of nature, and we’re really happy to be continuing our work with the band, and Cardinal Copia. Götene Spritfabrik AB have created a truly amazing gin, and we’re thrilled to release the result of this collaboration.
The GHOST Juniper Gin will be released on the 18:th of February
