Birds Adventure Spirit 500ml
OK, so we’ve put the Birds Riesling Original in our gin section, but that’s a bit of a fib, a little white lie, a pork pie. This delicious German botanical spirit distilled in the Mosel wine region doesn’t contain juniper, so it isn’t strictly a gin, but you can treat it just the same way.
Very much a spirit of adventure, Birds is blowing up on social media. It was created by three globetrotting friends, who have taken twelve botanicals from five continents and steeped them for 12 days in world-class Riesling from the wine’s spiritual home. There’s blackcurrant, apple, orange peel, voatsiperifery pepper, clove, cocoa, angelica, pink peppercorns, star anise, liquorice, mace and eucalyptus. When distilled together in an Arnold Holstein copper pot still, fruity German Riesling combined with this eclectic mix of botanicals results in a deeply complex and incredibly rare spirit, as it takes five litres of wine to make just one single bottle of Birds. That’s why each bottle is hand-numbered. The flavour profile has a decidedly Christmassy feel with the orange, boozy fruit, chocolate and spices, but then there’s something tropical and summery about it. It really is a drink for all seasons.
As we say, this isn’t gin, but a Birds and tonic garnished with a twist of lemon and some sliced grapes is a glorious thing, as is a Birds Sour or a Birds Martini. We think this is the perfect gift for the adventurous gin drinker who’s looking for something a little different. Who needs juniper anyway?£9.2 per 100.00ml
