The Juniper Club September 2019 Gin of the Month is Papillon Dartmoor Gin.
Distilled near Mortenhampstead within the Dartmoor National Park, Papillon Gin is a fantastic London Dry Gin inspired by local botanicals.
Distilled with 17 botanicals including Dartmoor flavours of fresh gorse flowers picked on the moor, rowan and hawthorn berries, chamomile and Devon violets grown for us by a local friend.
Named Papillon for the Pearl Bordered Fritillary, an endangered Dartmoor butterfly that feeds on wild violets.
A complex, full flavoured gin with fresh lemon and lime peel to give it a citrus start, cardamom and English coriander for warm spice notes, and gorse, chamomile and violets for a floral finish.
We recommend a double measure, over ice, with a premium tonic water and a small slice of lemon or lime peel.
