Blind Tiger

During the Prohibition Era, speakeasy establishments circumvented the strict liquor laws by selling tickets to see a blind tiger in the back room, and throwing in a complimentary gin cocktail. Deluxe Distillery celebrates the creativity of yesteryear with this contemporary, raw, unique, and handcrafted Blind Tiger Gin.

Distilled in small batches in the back room of a concealed distillery in the Western part of Belgium, unusual botanicals such as malted barley and cubeb pepper are used to give Blind Tiger Gin its daring and invigorating character.

BLIND TIGER IMPERIAL SECRETS

In the seclusion of our concealed distillery, our master distiller handcrafted this smooth and lush, yet refreshing gin with three meticulously distilled imperial black teas from Assam, Cashmere & Yunnan.

The subtle addition of carefully selected lemon peel, lemongrass, bitter almond & grains of paradise gives Blind Tiger Imperial Secrets its warming spiciness, which lingers sumptuously on the tongue.
Blind Tiger Imperial Secrets is to be savoured neat, over ice, or with the mixer of your choice.

Indulge in the luxury of Blind Tiger Imperial Secrets!

TASTING NOTES

The highly balanced and surprisingly smooth Blind Tiger Imperial Secrets opens with a complex nose of matured grain spirit, juniper, and spice from grains of paradise and bitter almond.

On the palate, higher notes of citrus, coriander, and lemon grass bleed through, backed up by a warming glow of both the imperial black tea and the 45% alcohol grain spirit which lingers on in the aftertaste.

Aroma and palate are interspersed by floral notes from the tea which play a prominent role in the grand finale.

PERFECT SERVE

Blind Tiger Imperial Secrets’ smooth and balanced complexity is best enjoyed neat, over ice or paired with a clean and smooth tonic.

The full flavour of the Imperial Secrets is also perfectly complemented by a ginger ale and makes a star appearance in a hot toddy.

Deluxe Distilleries celebrates the creativity of yesteryear with this contemporary, raw, unique, and handcrafted Blind Tiger Gin.

Stare the Blind Tiger in the eye & you’ll be roaring for more.

TASTING NOTES

The higher than average alcohol content carries bags of juniper and cubeb pepper which lingers on with zesty hints of cracked black pepper, violet, orange and liquorice.

The waft of celeriac from the blinded botanical in the nose gives way to herbal and floral notes of orange blossom and some citrus on the first sip.

The palate is complex with a peppery kick and the malted barley introduces a long and warming aftertaste with some more cracked pepper and cubeb and earthy notes of ginger, liquorice & cardamom.

BOTANICALS

Juniper Coriander seeds
Malted barley Licorice root
Angelica root Orris root
Lemon peel Sweet orange peel
Bitter orange peel Orange blossom
Ginger rhizome Green cardamom
Cubeb pepper Lavender

PERFECT SERVE

Blind Tiger’s full complexity is best to be enjoyed neat or over ice. Served as a Dry Martini with a twist, the Blind Tiger adds spice and notes of orange to this classic cocktail.

In a Gin & Tonic, the spiciness is tempered by the sparkles of the tonic and the quinine emphasizes its otherwise modest citric character. Any dry & neutral tonic works fine.
