Clearly Dirty Gin
A real hit from our second ever Sipping Society Box, this gin was created to make the perfect Dirty Martini.
Strong herbal undertones from the Mission olives with hints of bright citrus from the orange and lemon peel in the gin.
The Cerignola olives come into their own here, bringing a smooth butteriness to the pallet, beautifully balanced with nutty notes from the Hojiblanca olives.
Olive gives way to the London Dry Gin base, leaving you with a strong juniper backbone.
Native to Greece, these olives have a smooth, meaty texture and delicate flavour. They have to be harvested by hand, as machinery bruises them.
The only American olive listed by the International olive council as achieving an excellence on par with European varieties.
Popular table olives, this Spanish variety are collected late in the season as black, ripe fruit. Rich and bold in flavour.
Originating from the South Eastern Italian province of Apulia, these olives are very large and mild in flavour.

This gin was born out of Head Distiller Ollie's joint hatred of brine and love of olives. His plan, to make a perfect dirty martini with all the flavour of olives, less the salty brine. This recipe uses four carefully selected varieties of olives to give the gin its delicious full flavour. Cerignola olives giving give the gin a buttery character, Hojiblanca olives which add a nuttiness, Mission olives create a fresh herbal aroma and Kalamata olives provides rich fruity notes. Thus creating a well-balanced almost floral olive character without any overpowering brine.
