10ml Fino sherry
Pinch of activated charcoal
Shake and strain into a sherry glass. Don’t be scared to indulge
500 ml bottle of Elephant Strength Gin (57%).
Whilst the Elephant London Dry Gin and Elephant Strength Gin share the same fourteen botanicals, including rare African ingredients, to create their distinctive flavour profiles, the latter uses twice the quantity of botanicals and has an ABV of 57%.
The botanical focus is also specifically centred around juniper, orange peel, mountain pine and African buchu, with its blackcurrant-like flavour profile.The result is a more powerful nose and taste - without losing the silky-smooth character that the Elephant London Dry Gin has become celebrated for.
Elephant Gin donates 15% of bottle profits to elephant conservation foundations.
