Kyrö Dark Gin (formerly named Koskue) is a beautiful Finnish Cask Aged Gin that merges a traditional profile with sumptuous local flavours, namely meadowsweet, sea buckthorn, cranberries and birch leaves.
The flavour in intense here – a charred, caramelised marmalade with a deep pine spice. The Rye base comes into its own too and given conceptual crossover, we recommend trying it in a Gin Old Fashioned.
“The added black pepper and orange peel distillate have turned what would have been an ordinary barrel aged gin into something that’s more than a bit special. Honey, orange and pepper play smoothly with oak.”
