The small blue berries pack a surprising punch: chew one and will be uplifted by heady terpenes and strong flavours reminiscent of the scent of the mountain conifer forests in which these trees grow. It makes a sublime garnish for a gin and tonic where it complements botanical flavours in the gin.

Ingredients: 100% wild-harvested dried juniper berries (Juniperus communis)


Hand gathered high in the mountains, the juniper berry offers a resiny and herbaceous counterpoint to wild game dishes, beverages and traditional fermented vegetable preparations. Juniper berries have a strong bitter and herbal flavour that excites the palate, stimulates hunger and improves digestion. Rich in mono-terpenes and flavonoid compounds the juniper berry offers health benefits including anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal effects.
