500ml bottle of limited 2nd edition rye-based Elephant Aged Gin II (52% ABV).
For this release, the Gin was rested in three different types of oak for a year and received a further finish in a Venezuelan rum cask.
Elephant Aged Gin II is based on a 100% rye distillate. It combines the same 14 botanicals that Elephant London Dry Gin is renowned for, but has increased quantities of all ingredients to achieve a higher concentration of aromas.
While the gin was rested in oak for over a year, the focus during the ageing process remained on a juniper-led flavour and prominent fresh characteristic of the gin. The result: an added well-balanced silky spice, sweet smokiness and a pleasant hint of vanilla.
In a final process, the Elephant Aged Gin II was further rested in rum cask from Venezuela for a few weeks, which lends it an additional warm, sweet caramel aroma.
