Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin Bottling Note

A London Dry Gin made with botanicals from along the traditional spice route that led back to the UK. Indonesian Cubeb berries, Indian black pepper and Moroccan coriander are all used in this gin, launched by Quintessential Brands in 2013.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Coriander and citrus, gentle juniper and peppery notes.

Palate: More discernible spiciness and juniper with plenty of coriander.

Finish: Refreshing with citrus and spice.

Overall: A handsome gin that's playfully spiced.

Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin Reviews

A break from the norm ...

Love it. Great favour. A real spicy punch. Great with tonic or neat with ice.

25th September 2018

Cardamom spice warming

I love the cardamom spice flavour. Tonic, lime and ribboned cucumber is all it needs. Delicious. Went with my duck legs and spiced plum sauce.

6th September 2018

Unique exotic twist

A unique flavour and stunning.Best with lots of ice and tonic to counterbalance the spice which I found to be moorish (no pun intended!)

2nd September 2018

Fantastic after an Indian meal - but we don't generally drink it otherwise,

A spicy gin. Fantastic after an Indian meal - we both thought so! It is kept for those occasions, or when we want something a bit different.

6th August 2018

The Oriental spices burst through in a G&T

When you make a G and T with Opihr is when you truly note the particular spices of coriander and cardamon and I for one like hat complexity

4th August 2018

I wouldn't recommend this.

Waste of money, too spicy, too experimental...

27th July 2018

A Spicy delight

This is delicious with with Fever Tree Aromatic Tonic and a slice of lime

19th July 2018

I know what to ask for now

This is the most refreshing gin I've tasted. I now know what gin to ask for.

6th June 2018

Highly Experimental flavor.

This is not a gin. A novelty - yes, an experiment with the Spice route - yes. Not a gin. The curried element is off putting. However I imagine a Bloody Mary might suit it. On its own or in tonic it is highly suspect to the taste buds. As there is an element of decay in the flavor. Actually this with bitter lemon and a curry might redeem it. I have tried it sober (6pm) I have tried it tight (late morning) I shuddered both times.

21st May 2018

Delicious, but not for the unimaginative!

This is a lovely, spicy, gin. I see others are getting coriander, but I'm getting cardamom, and other more subtle flavours, and it's delicious! I'm drinking it neat, over ice, which I do with all "special" gins, and it's not going to last long!

12th April 2018

No. Just no.

I like gin. I like to drink it neat, over ice, or in classic cocktails. This one sounded interesting and exiting so I gave it a try. Totally undrinkable neat. Just too much spices, the coriander is overpowering and kills all other flavours. I managed to drink it with tomato juice, Bloody Mary - style (or Red Snapper as they call it (or Bloody Awful as I call it)) , but that is the only combination that sort of works.

7th April 2018

Will give this a miss in the future

Not my bag I’m afraid. Cardimun completely overpowers the flavour.

3rd April 2018

Wonderfully spiced.

Absolutely love this gin. Try it with ginger ale to really get those spicy flavours.

1st April 2018

Awful gin

Spices are over powering and not an enjoyable gin

31st March 2018

Dry spicy notes , lovely

Gorgeous flavours, dry and spicy so not for those who like the fruit gins. If you like the guns that have strong juniper notes you’ll like this . I did

13th March 2018

Absolutely fantastic

I just love this gin, definitely my favourite. Enjoy it best with fever tree aromatic pink tonic with a slice of orange and loads of ice

10th March 2018

Cardomom... Lots of it

First gin I've found undrinkable.

The amount of cardomom in this is seriously off putting. I *love* spices, but this is like drinking perfume with a hint of overly-bitter orange peel - just *awful*!

Maybe it tastes better with tonic water, but I'll never know because this rubbish is going down the sink :/

4th March 2018

Favourite Gin!

This is our favourite Gin! Love the spices which make it unique!

13th January 2018

Wonderful, subtle spices

Definitely a winner for those who like the 'perfumed' spices like cardamom and coriander. Drink it neat and savour the flavours.

8th January 2018

Try in a bar before buying a bottle

Tastes like curry! Wouldn’t buy again

24th December 2017

Overpowering spices hide the delicate flavours

I wanted to like this but all I could taste was overpowering cardamom. I can still taste that and coriander even 15 minutes later. First gin I've ever disliked.

21st September 2017

Would buy regularly

Quintessential taste with elegance and a slight hit x very refreshing

20th September 2017

Too much coriander

I was looking for something different and boy did I find it.
Unfortunately the taste isn't one I enjoyed. I tried it with tonic and found the coriander too strong. With ginger it was more palatable. For me, the spice was a little overdone. Interesting though.

16th September 2017

Taste Buds Tingle

Love the spice of this Gin. Its an electronic blanket in a glass. Another one that goes down a storm when people are round !

25th August 2017

An outstanding and uniquely pleasurable drinking experience

I've been drinking Gin for over 40 years and this has gradually become my all time favourite!
When the bottle empties, I am subject to bouts of depression! :-)

24th August 2017

Heavenly. I will keepthis for myself!

Refreshing with a hint of the east! What's not to like

9th June 2017

Damn good 😀

Drinking Ophir just now after a good BBQ. Saw the bottle in the supermarket and fell in love with the design on the bottle so had to have it. The gin is really good too very smooth, we are enjoying it with old Jamaican ginger beer, chilling , sat here in the garden after a lovely day.

28th May 2017

Love it

Absolutely love this gin. And the fact its the lowest calorie content. It's my favourite with slim line tonic and strawberries.

14th May 2017

Have had one out the bottle and I somehow think it will not get touched except by visitors

Bloody awful. Not much to add Spice overhauls the more traditional botanicals

10th May 2017

Yuk

Horrible, curry and tonic. Too much cardamom overwhelms this.

6th May 2017

Fabulous

Delicious over ice with a sliver of ginger. I think this could be my new favourite gin!

20th April 2017

Spicy winter warmer

Stunningly good Gin - A great winter warmer when served with ginger ale, a squeeze of lime and a halved chilli pepper to garnish. Go on I dare you !

11th January 2017

Gorgeous!

Best gin ever!

2nd January 2017

Dundee rain

I loved this gin. its very spicy coriander but made a pineapple cocktail and to my delight it enhanced the coriander flavour
also works as a martini but will look forward to plain over ice ot with one of the fancy tonic waters. can see why it is a "marmite" gin!! People will either love it or hate it

30th December 2016

Mr E Hall

Fantastic smooth taste and for once I can detect the coriander and the pepper and juniper, so a really good Christmas present from my new best friends from Poland who now live in London.

27th December 2016

Lovely gin!

Seriously good gin. Great in summer with a chunk of bashed fresh ginger and some mint leaves but just as good in winter with just a slice of lime or lemon. Fevertree tree tonic goes well with it.

21st December 2016

Coriander hit

As a lover of gin this was suggested to me by a bartender in Penzance. I had it neat with a block of ice and loved it straight away. Lovely spice at first with a long coriander finish. I always make sure to order this when in that bar. Taken neat and now without the ice is my preferred method.

17th December 2016

strong with cardomom

the main flavour here is cardamom, which I do like but I'm a little disappointed it doesn't have more depth.

9th December 2016

great gin and tonic

wedge of grapefruit rind, cardamom seeds and peppercorns with tonic

10th November 2016

Un bonheur

Tout simplement excellent,le meilleur épicé que j'ai bu.
Un arôme détonnant,une odeur de cuir fabuleuse.

1st September 2016

best gin!!

love this, so refreshingly different from traditional G&T with lime/lemon. delicious with slice of orange and a few juniper berries thrown in over ice! would recommend

8th July 2016

Naughty Girl

The cardamom and Coriander are initially a shock but on a bit of experimentation we love it with Capi tonic and slice of orange or mandarin. As a martini , announce it as a Cardomomini - dicky but sets people right beforehand and then serve mini pappadums and mini bhajis to start the fun

20th May 2016

Opihr a nice change.

Quite a gentle but refreshing taste, if you like bursting botanicals then this won't be for you!

3rd April 2016

Not refreshing! Are you Bonkers?

This is a lovely gin, a tasty alternative to the norm. Smarty elegant pants needs a refreshing kick up their ass. P.S. please introduce me to your friend whose sweat smells like gin.

13th March 2016

Lovely afternotes!

You can really taste the black pepper and spices in the finish. Very smooth, even with cheap tonic. Beautiful.

29th February 2016

Not refreshing!

As a lover of gin I do not like this! The taste is quite elegant with a nicely balanced group of spices. However, to me it lacks a refreshing kick and it has a scent that unfortunately is reminiscent of sweat.

15th February 2016

elegant.

Way above average.

6th February 2016

The perfect winter gin?

Don't get me wrong, this would taste good at any time of the year, but for me its warm, smooth and slightly spicy flavour are perfect on a cold evening when I want a change from whisky. Currently drinking it with Fever Tree naturally light Indian tonic and a slice of lime, lovely!

16th November 2015

Different and a cheap deal

Love this. It's beautifully well balanced with a very purfumy-spice flavour of cardamom, pepper and coriander. Whilst it makes for an interesting g&t I found my preferred mixer to be cranberry juice. It just seems to work really well and brings out the flavours of the gin. It's cheaper than a lot of premium brands as well which is a bonus.

5th September 2015

Excellent

Tried this for the first time on Sat. Barman served over ice and wedges of orange studded with cloves. So so good. On my shopping list

30th August 2015

Superb

what a great gin but Adnams Copper House is even better

14th June 2015

Fabulous continued...

In response to my previous post named "fabulous" I meant to say fever tree tonic water.

13th March 2015

Fabulous

A great bottle of gin! Very easy to drink. I agrree with another review: it tastes beautiful even with cheap tonic water compared to other, less favourable brands of gin. To make it even better have with Ophir tonic water and of course with any G&T it needs to be ice cold.

13th March 2015

Sybaritic

We drink it with bog standard tonic water and love it. This is Gin at another level!

7th March 2015

Brilliant

We've been serving it with apple juice and a lime/apple garnish.
It's incredibly popular; very distinctive peppery taste.

21st February 2015

Distinctive

An unusual and very distinctive take on gin. The spicing may be a little pronounced for some, but works very well with Fever Tree lemon tonic. I need to do some more experimenting re it's use in a Martini.

12th December 2014

The spice is right

Served with a slice of red chilli and a quality tonic (my choice is Fentiman's), this is a quality, refreshing drink and a welcome change in direction. x

26th July 2014

A Christmas Gin

I had it served with a stick of cinnamon and slice of orange. I immediately thought of Christmas and it's warm oriental spiciness enhanced that thought. A must for my stocking this Yule.

9th June 2014

Spicy

This is a good, unusual gin. I had it in a bar and they served it with half a red chilli as a garnish. It is pretty spicy but still with that gin taste. Something different to try for sure
