Luxury English gin handcrafted with
rare Bhutanese juniper
THE WORLD’S MOST
In our quest to create the world’s most distinctive gin, we sought the rarest and purest juniper and found it in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. Our juniper only grows above 4000 metres in pristine mountain air and sunshine. It is sustainably collected by a resident team in the mountains who know exactly where this jewel of Bhutan can be found.
Silent Pool Black Juniper Gin is crafted with the rarest juniper and most exotic botanicals, including oud and cloud tea, to deliver a unique layered gin experience.
From the Kingdom of Bhutan to the County of Surrey and
then to Greece.
OUR INSPIRATION, THE BLACK
JUNIPER OF BHUTAN
The Kingdom of Bhutan, on the edge of the Himalayas, is home to a high-altitude variant of juniper which thrives on the mountainous landscapes. Bhutanese juniper trees are considered sacred and since ancient times have been a symbol of life and fertility to the people of Bhutan. Juniper branches are burnt as incense in the many monasteries and village houses of the Himalayas.
In Bhutan environmental preservation is cultural preservation. As a Buddhist country, the pursuit of happiness is rooted in celebrating and protecting nature and the environment.
Bhutan is the only country in the world that is carbon-negative, absorbing more carbon than it emits. The quality of the air and altitude deliver the purest growing conditions for the elusive black juniper berries. The result is juniper berries with the most powerful and aromatic essential oils in the world.
