Description

During the Prohibition Era, speak easy establishments circumvented the strict liquor laws by selling tickets to ‘see a blind tiger in the back room’, and throwing in a complimentary gin cocktail.

Deluxe Distilleries celebrates the creativity of yesteryear with this contemporary, raw, unique, and handcrafted Blind Tiger Gin. Distilled in small batches in the back room of a concealed distillery in the Western part of Belgium, unusual botanicals such as malted barley and cubeb pepper are used to give Blind Tiger Gin its daring and invigorating character.

Stare the Blind Tiger in the eye & you’ll be roaring for more.

15 BOTANICALS

Juniper berries, coriander seeds, malted barley, licorice root, angelica root, orris root, lemon peel, sweet orange peel, bitter orange peel, orange blossom, ginger rhizome, green cardamom, cubeb berries, lavender & a secret belgian botanical.

THE PROCESS

Our botanicals (except the cubeb berries) are macerated & distilled in a copper pot still (400l). We add the double distilled cubeb pepper afterwards.

Tasting Notes

The higher than average alcohol content carries bags of juniper and cubeb pepper which lingers on with zesty hints of cracked black pepper, violet, orange and liquorice. The waft of celeriac from the blinded botanical in the nose gives way to herbal and floral notes of orange blossom and some citrus on the first sip. The palate is complex with a peppery kick and the malted barley introduces a long and warming aftertaste with some more cracked pepper and cubeb and earthy notes of ginger, liquorice & cardamom.

Featured Drinks

GIN & TONIC

In a Gin & Tonic, the spiciness is tempered by the sparkles of the tonic and the quinine emphasizes its otherwise modest citric character. Any dry & neutral tonic works fine.

DRY MARTINI

Blind Tigers full complexity is best to be enjoyed neat or over ice. Served as a Dry Martini with a twist, the Blind Tiger adds spice and notes of orange to this classic cocktail.
