Juniper Gin 200 ml
About Juniper / Einiberja Liqueur 43% vol, 200 ml
Juniper, Iceland’s only native evergreen tree, commonly grows in lava fields and scrubland. In Iceland’s harsh natural environment, the common juniper (Juniperus communis) is tough, growing slowly and surely into a low, hardy shrub. Its sharp needles are used to make a refreshing, healthful tea, and they may also be burned to give a cosy, Christmassy scent.
Juniper berries take two years to ripen, if weather conditions are favourable, and hence they are difficult to gather.
The flavour has something in common with gin, but here the pure, clear juniper taste comes into its own.
