Blue Beetle gin is so named because the blue beetle is “enigmatic, captivating, elegant and sophisticated”, just like this uncommon gin.
The gin is produced with a mysterious “18+1” botanical recipe. That is to say, it is made with 19 botanicals, one of which will never be revealed. The ones we do know about are mint, balm, juniper, coriander, liquorice, angelica, lemon peel, orange peel, fresh lemon, orange and grapefruit, cardamom, cinnamon, guinea pepper, cubeb pepper, bergamot, lavender and geranium.
The result is an extraordinarily complex gin, which manages to balances its dizzying array of botanicals with ample poise and flair. Expect big hits of citrus, spice and peppery warmth.
This gin is produced in tiny batches of 6,000 bottles, by the Leomar company which is based in London.
Blue Beetle is beautifully presented in a blue bottle, featuring the titular beetle itself.
Amazing taste.Great packaging
