Blind Tiger Piper Cubeba (Blue Bottle)

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.

The first gin in the Blind Tiger range was ‘Piper Cubera’ launched in 2014, the newest addition to the range is the second gin from Deluxe Distillery and sister to the original gin, Blind Tiger ‘Imperial Secrets’ launched in late 2015.

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.

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.
