About This Contemporary Gin

Why This Bottle?

Based in the tourist hot spot of Granville Island in downtown Vancouver, this distillery triple distils their spirits in a high-quality German-engineered copper still. Origins is a limited run annual release that consistently sells out at the distillery shop and can be quite hard to find. The base of this gin is 100% organic BC wheat, and it is flavoured with 25 locally harvested botanicals.

Strath Panel Notes

Caramel apples and soft blossoms on the nose. Notes of white pepper and lemon myrtle. Complex and delicate, well-orchestrated aromas, where one does not stand out too much against the others.

The palate is more herbal than the nose, quite dry with a pronounced juniper taste.

Serving Suggestion: With tonic! See below.

Will It G&T? This gin stands perfectly well on its own, but when mixed with tonic it truly comes to life. The flavours combine perfectly and the sweetness really lifts the flavours of the gin.

How We Review Gins

Score

Gins are rated out of 100 by our members when they come to sample them in-store.

Based on how scoring occurred for our early reviews, the following guide is given to members –

0-60 awful • 60-70 bad • 70-80 okay • 80-85 good • 85-90 great • 90-95 awesome • 95+ amazing

The individual scores are collected, and outliers are removed via the “agreeable group” statistical method to reduce bias and taste preferences (ie, people who score a sloe gin lowly because they don’t like sloeberries). This gives us a better idea of the overall quality of the gin in the eyes of our members.
