Forest Dry Gin is a Belgian gin distilled nearby Antwerp (Ranst). The aim of their project was to create a pure gin that combines juniper with locally produced ingredients and to perform the whole process of distillation on the domain itself. The Forest domain contains 3,5 acres of land where Forest herbs like bergamot, coriander seeds, angelica as well as pears, apples and lavender are produced in an ecological way.
The botanicals and fruit are macerated and distilled separately. Finally, they blend the distilled botanicals and fruit with their basic spirit following the same procedure. They leave this mixture to rest for a couple of weeks in order to obtain the perfect marriage between the etherical oils of the botanicals and the basic spirit. A predominant taste of juniper will be typical for all the Forest dry gins but every season will have his own gin flavoured with the seasonal botanicals. The Spring edition contains Pink Flowers.
