Origin - Istog, Kosovo Bottling Note

The ‘Origin’ range of London Dry Gins is a unique proposition for the discerning gin-lover. Each one is distilled using juniper gathered from one single location – in this instance from Istog in Kosovo. This allows one to explore the effects of terroir (or place of origin) on the final gin, highlighting how location, climate, soil type and myriad other conditions have affected the juniper.

Each gin is distilled from English wheat spirit and Juniper. No other botanicals are added. If you wish to transform the spirit into a more traditional, more rounded Gin, every bottle of Origin comes with a 10ml vial of cold-distilled additional botanicals (Coriander, Fresh Lemon Peel, Bitter Orange Peel, Cardamom, Angelica, Cassia, Liquorice, Cubeb Berries and Camomile) which can be added to the larger bottle.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: This gin has really floral juniper notes of violet, lavender with white pepper that becomes more prominent with time in the glass. There is also a hint of leather roaming around at the back.

Palate: A soft and sweet palate with notes of plums, fresh cherries and muscavado sugar with a touch of white pepper.

Finish: Soft but develops a pleasant tannic quality.

Overall: This Origin Gin has a wonderful floral quality that defines the gin very neatly.

User Reviews of the Origin - Istog, Kosovo


I love the idea of this gin - the connection to the terroir of the juniper. I tried it against two others, Croatian and Macedonian, and this one is incredibly floral and sweet in comparison. It almost smells like it's had orange zest included in the distillation, but apparently the samples are just juniper.
