Hidden Curiosities Aranami Strength Gin

500ml | 59%ABV
Navy Strength Gin 59% ABV

Aranami 荒波 - meaning "Raging Waves" in Japanese, is our super powerful, albeit incredibly silky smooth navy strength gin. At 59% ABV, and overflowing with flavour from 20 botanicals, (7 of which are specifically sourced from Japan), it really packs a punch, just like the dragon emerging out of the tempestuous waters featured on the back of the bottle.

The bottle may appear demure and elegant with pink cherry blossom scattered on the label, but this gin is certainly no delicate flower. Bursting with citrus, pepper and floral notes, and a beautifully long finish, this Aranami gin is sure to leave a lasting impression on your palate.

Tasting notes:
Waves of bright citrus from Japanese yuzu, tingling spice from lemony sansho pepper, followed by mouthwatering marmalade notes from kabosu and kumquat. Sweetness from creamy Tahitian vanilla, Japanese sour plum and fragrant Furano Lavender (sourced from Hokkaido in Japan). Rounded off with delicate herbaceous undertones from shiso leaf, softened and blended harmoniously together with salted cherry blossom.

How to Serve:
Try Aranami Navy Strength Gin neat first, then with ice, followed by a generous splash of premium Indian tonic to open it up and release the dragon with a surge of mighty flavours. Jenny, the creator, recommends trying this in a breakfast martini with a dollop of Seville orange marmalade or her favourite; a navy strength salty negroni.

Garnish:
There are three exceptional ways to garnish your Aranami Strength gin & tonic. Follow the sweet & salty route with a garnish of Japanese sour plum (or a handful of dried barberries), be daring with a sensory experience of shiso leaf sprinkled with crushed sansho pepper, or stay simple and make the most of the gin's flavour profile with a citrus twist.
