Proof66 Notes

Boxer Gin was founded by Mark D. Hill with the intention of delivering a classic, traditional gin in the London Dry style. That signals to us a juniper forward, crisp gin... though this is a bottled at a relatively light 80 proof (also a 90 proof version is available). They suggest looking for intense aromatics and a long finish "deeper, richer and longer than is usual." Boxer uses a blend of 12 botanicals, including bergamot, nutmeg, coriander, angelica, lemon, orris, liquorice, seville orange, and cassia (of which bergamot is a somewhat unusual ingredient outside of what we would normally associate with traditional botanicals). The distillate itself is a wheat base, a grain spirit often associated with French and Russian vodka that implies an approachable and soft base spirit for the flavors. They mention steam distilling the wild juniper berries to extract the essential oils. The label is an homage to bare-knuckled boxing, which figures prominently on the label.

The gin itself is made at the Langley Distillery in England and owned by Greenbox Drinks, Limited.
