Elephant Gin unveils its second edition 500ml Elephant Aged Gin in July 2019 with a Diplomático Rum cask finish (52% ABV).
Following the successful product launch of the strictly limited Elephant Aged Gin (52%) in 2018, Elephant Gin released another 4,000 bottles of its newest Aged edition in summer 2019, which includes an extra rum cask finish.
Elephant Aged Gin II is based on a 100% rye distillate, taking advantage of its premium grain structure as well as its natural spicy and fruity characteristics. It combines the same 14 botanicals that Elephant London Dry Gin is renowned for, but has increased quantities of all ingredients to achieve a higher concentration of aromas.
While the gin was rested in three different types of oak for a year, the focus during the ageing process remained on a juniper-led flavour and prominent fresh characteristic of the gin. The result: an added well-balanced silky spice, sweet smokiness and a pleasant hint of vanilla.
In a final process, the Elephant Aged Gin II was further rested in Diplomático Rum casks from Venezuela for a few weeks, which lends it an additional warm, sweet caramel aroma.
As with all Elephant Gin products, 15% of the bottle profits are donated to partner foundations that are committed to the protection of the African elephant.
