Procera African Juniper Gin (Green)
"The world of Gin has become rather busy with excessive amounts of botanicals and even colours being used de rigeur. Procera Green Dot was a countermovement to this, striping Gin back to its true essence and letting its terroir come to the fore. The complexity extracted from only using Juniper proves that less, indeed, can be more.“ ROGER JORGENSEN - PROCERA MASTER DISTILLER
African Juniper never Dried: At Procera, we are the pioneers of the use of the high-altitude African Juniperus Procera berry which we distill fresh and never dried, unlike almost all other gins. These innovations create an elegant gin of distinction with a nutty, bright flavour profile truly representative of its African sun-kissed terroir and birthplace.
Limited Release, Vintage 2021: Our Green Dot 2021 Vintage is the most terroir-driven expression in our range. Representing the absolute personification of what is so special about the Juniperus Procera tree, no two years of this small production gin will be exactly the same, creating vintages reflective of their harvest. The 2021 vintage marks the inaugural release.
Procera gin was founded with a dream to bring the very best of Africa to the world. Our gin is skillfully crafted in Nairobi, Kenya. It’s the world’s first gin to use Juniperus Procera, which we harvest just 70 kilometres from our distillery in Kijabe, picked from trees growing at an altitude of 2,200m. Procera captures and expresses the terroir of our continent in every sip.
Procera Green Dot was designed to take juniper terroir to its absolute limits, representing a world-first for gin using botanicals only from Juniper trees. Green Dot is the liquid personification of Procera, using only juniper, foliage, wood and
berries, which results in gin full of earthy, piney, nutty flavour. Green Dot is Procera's most versatile gin, suiting a range of drinks styles as well as being a remarkable sipping gin on its own. Martinis work particularly well on the cocktail
front, along with G&T serves with a sprinkle of Green Dot botanical salt, which emphasises the gins unique character.
Nose: Earthy, delicate and woody in style with subtle notes of pine forest combined with deep, intense, core aromas of green juniper. Broad and evolving in the glass with a unique profile which consistently reveals different layers and nuances.
Palate: Complex yet understated at first; initial flavours of juniper, herbs and stone fruit are revealed on a layered and mouth-filling journey. A sweet and juicy-like mid-palate displays a personified taste exploration of Juniperus Procera with a multi -dimensional cascade of flavours evocative of the berry itself. Earthy, green and umami on the finish, which lingers and evolves for several minutes on a harmonious and savoury palate.
