Napue Gin Bottling Note

The "Adventurous Rye Rye Gentlemen" at the Kyrö Distillery in Isokyrö, Finland produce the small batch Napue Gin using rye grain and the finest botanicals which give off a nose rich in meadow sweet, citrus, cumin and juniper. To follow it up, the palate develops subtle leafy and refreshing menthol notes. Top work, you adventurous Rye Rye Gentlemen!

Looking for a great gin for a G&T? Napue Gin was the inaugural winner of the IWSC Gin & Tonic Trophy in 2015!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A soft and succulent blend of creamy vanilla and angelica leads with help from deep, concentrated notes of juniper. An understated pink peppercorn spice sharpens orange blossom, among a herbal twinge of coriander root and cardamom seed.

Palate: The palate adds more floral and perfumed qualities, Parma Violets and a touch of rich heather, among bolder kicks of spice, which include a little cinnamon. Some marzipan icing develops with tinges of fresh lemon.

Finish: Quite short and impressively delicate.

Overall: An impressively mature, understated gin, reminiscent of classic styles.

Napue Gin Reviews

Seriously good!!!

Outstanding! An excellent selection of botanicals makes this one of the best gins I have ever tasted. So fragrant and smooth neat. It seems a shame to add tonic, but just don't add too much! The flavour is awesome with or without. 5 stars to Finland for creating a masterpiece!

A most flavourful gin indeed!

I tried this at a tasting festival in Singapore and it has to be one of the most flavourful gins I've tried in a long time. I'll be seeking out this again for sure...

Gin perfection

The tasting above does not do this gin justice. I first had this on a fishing trip in Lapland. Considering all the superb recent additions into the Gin world, Napue is without question the best I have ever had the good fortune to taste.

Best Sipping Gin

I put this up against Monkey 47 in a tasting. Napue hands down big winner

Napue vs. Koskue - finlandês. Koskue - more intensive

Napue vs Koskue:
This is more for the sensitive hearts; others will pick Koskue. But seriously, both have more taste than basic pure, all day gin. As such I would not personally mix this with anything. (Both/) It is a gin to take straight for the taste, not more than a teaspoon once. With Koskue I got fed up like this at the end of the bottle, so go and mix; but start tasting as pure: both.

from finland but very objective :)

i just forgot the huge coriander and the rating, its one of the very good ones, yes.

12th October 2017

from finland but very objective :)

intensely sweet, gin mares sweetness times 10. times 5 maybe.. cardamom and over ripe juniper combined, some white pepper, very easy to drink neat too. pine needles..do not overdo the tonic. and yea please do add cranberries and rosemary but just a little. thats the winner gt.

17th September 2017

Best ever

Wow!! What can you say about a Gin that speaks for itself. Some friends from Finland bought a bottle for us from home. The best gin we have ever tasted by far.

1st September 2017

Number one

Haven't been the friend of gin but after tasting Napue I met a new friend

11th August 2017

As fresh as it can get

The best gin I've ever tried, with or without tonic water. There should be a picture of Napue gin with the word fresh in the dictionary.

6th May 2017

The best gin I have ever had.

Had this gin and tonic drink every day while in Finland. Excellent. Very refreshing drink.

14th April 2017

Springtime in a bottle

We had this Gin for the first time on a trip to Tampere, Finland. The legend is real, though we had not heard it before arrival. It tastes fresher and more like spring than any Gin we've ever had. Our gin snob friends back in the states agreed when we shared bottles of our discovery.

Napue Lover

I never drank Gin until I tasted NAPUE in a visit to Helsinki. It;s absolutely delicious. Amazing!

25th November 2016

Brilliant!

I had some at a Finnish friend's at the weekend; She served it with tonic, a sprig of rosemary, and some cranberries. It was quite delicious.

One trick pony

Too spicy and bland to my taste. Hard to counter the spice.

Perfecto.

8th September 2016

A fantastic gin

Napue gin is by far the best gin I've tasted. Very smooth and nice taste, which makes a great gin & tonic! The bottle is also beautiful.

Finnair G&T Discovery - Napue

This is absolutely the most delicious gin I have ever tasted - even better than Hendrick's! Served in Business Class on Finnair international flight and so "moreish" I am endeavouring to have my own supply at home in Sydney!

4th August 2016

Great drink!

Love it with cranberry!

25th July 2016

Finnish Gin and Tonic

It is served in Helsinki with a twig of rosemary and lingonberries on the bottom - unbelievable.

I was introduced to this phenomenal tasting gin at a May Day party and this might be the best gin I have ever tasted. Thanks and great work.

Liisa

Absolutely the best ever gin. Have just returned from Finland where I was introduced to Napue Gin. It engages coriander with other herbs and is so very aromatic.

21st March 2016

My favourite was Bombay Gin before.
Bombay gin is poor.
Long live Napue Gin

2nd January 2016

Top gin

Best gin I ever had. Amazingly gentle and full of flavors

27th November 2015

Stunning flavours

Happened on Napue by accident travelling between Sweden and Finland. Best gin with tonic I've had and friends agree.

18th November 2015

I enjoy my Napue Gin "President Kekkonen style"

Finnair flight attendant on Finnair's flight to Shanghai recommended me to try Napue Gin "President Kekkonen style": Napue, a couple of ice cubes and half a dozen common sea-bucthorn berries. No tonic to spoil the sophisticated taste of Napue and lots of Vitamin C! If you do not happen have sea-buckthorn berries you can try Finnish lingonberries or cloudberries as an alternative.

11th November 2015

Absolutely fantastic!

Absolutisti fantastic gin with tonic, plenty of Ice, rosemary and coupé of icy Cranberries.

3rd November 2015

Excellent!

Best Gin in the world!

29th October 2015

Divine

As a confirmed gin drinker, I have never tasted anything like this before; it is divine, either on its own or mixed. Extremely highly recommended. PS It is always 'out of stock' in Finland so if you mnage to get a bottle, thank for your lucky stars.

27th October 2015

The Gin

Absolutely the best I have ever taste!

5th September 2015

Awesome

Just sampled this one with a bunch of good friends. Very smooth, can taste the cranberry and birch notes. We let it air for a little while, and the flavor developed even further. Flowery notes, and the Rye finish came on strong. Wish this was available locally here in the US!

Navigator

I enjoyed this gin. It tastes smooth and leaves a nice aftertaste. Crazy expensive so no full points.

1st August 2015

From Napue region

This gin slightly changes the tradition of gin, but not to a worse direction! Oikein hyvä G&T

29th July 2015

G&T

This gin works with lemon, lime and cucumber. Best G&T ever!

25th July 2015

Best

incredible taste. Tastier than any other.

23rd July 2015

Great gin

A great gin indeed and now also recognized at International Wine and Spirit Competition.

23rd July 2015

A winner!

I had a bottle of this in my bar cabinet for a while. Made a couple of G&T's and they turned out great. The next thing I know it's announced the best gin for a G&T of 2015! Great stuff!

22nd July 2015

It's Gin...rite?

Ouch...The distillate it was made with is not really high in quality I think, a lot of raw elements there. On top of this, there's the basic Juniper and a lot of cumin, spices which unfortunately have not been integrated very well into the spirit either. I do feel that it is more of a 'homemade' experiment than a ready product. For this price, many a better options exist.

30th May 2015

so fresh

this Gin is outstanding, easy on the juniper and complex in the botanicals it has wonderful spring like floral feel.

11th March 2015

Distinct personality

I had it with tonic and am pleased to say that Napue gin has very distinct personality as compared to London dry gins. Less juniper, more fresh botanicals. Some resemblance to the fantastic Hendricks gin. Great!

15th December 2014

Well Rounded and well finished

beautiful gin made with a great selection of botanicals that make a unique one to try again and again

6th December 2014

Great

Very unique taste of botanicals

18th November 2014

A wonderful range of natural flavours

I had the pleasure to meet a couple of the makers and sample this along with their 4-month old Rye Whisky at an event in Tokyo yesterday.

The whisky naturally will require more years to mature but this Gin is lovely as is.
Using local botanicals they have created a layered and delightful spirit.

this is good!
