Elephant London Dry Gin is a handcrafted premium gin of 45% ABV that captures the spirit of Africa. Its innovative blend of 14 botanicals combines rare African ingredients with fresh apples that make Elephant Gin distinct from any other.
Taste and Aromas
The gin’s distinct nose first yields a subtle juniper aroma, with an undertone of mountain pine and other herbaceous notes. The taste is complex but strikingly smooth, encompassing floral, fruity and spicy flavours, which can be enjoyed both straight or in a cocktail.
The design of Elephant Gin’s logo as a stamp is a nod to the letters sent home by the 19th century explorers of Africa, in which they described the botanical discoveries they made. Writing letters was the only form of communication at the time, without which Elephant Gin may have never heard the tales of these explorers.
Each bottle is custom-made and embossed with a crest in the shape of the typical tribal shield.
Elephant Gin’s labels are hand-written by a calligrapher and carry the name of a past great tusker or elephant that its partner foundations currently help to protect.
The 50ml minis are a shrunk down version of the 500ml bottles; yet featuring additional design details like a baby elephant on the label. Each bottle bears the name of one of the 22 elephants that Elephant Gin is currently a foster-parent of. These are great success stories to tell and highlight the wonderful work of Sheldrick Wildlife Trust – an elephant orphanage near Nairobi.
In fact, with the launch of the miniature bottles, Elephant Gin was keen to support this foundation. 15% of the miniature bottle profits goes to various direct associated costs including round-the-clock specialist care, proper nutrition, veterinary care & treatment, medications, keepers’ salaries and a well-constructed and maintained stockade for housing.
