Juniper

Serbian juniper is considered the world’s best, and it’s this botanical that makes gin so unique. It’s the most prominent flavour in each and every sip.


While most other distilleries buy in berries from suppliers,

Juni  harvest high-grade ‘jumbo’ juniper from the wild and beautiful highlands of Pešter. It’s handpicked by locals before being collected and brought down to the gin distillery for sorting.

At the distillery, only use this juniper, it is not sold to anyone else – so you won’t find it in any other gin. You’re sure to taste the difference.


Elderberries and elderflowers


Elders grow freely in Žiča, so the botanicals are always in abundant supply. Both the berries and flowers have been used locally for centuries in homemade drinks and spirits, and handpicked before being dried and stored in the distillery close by.


Lavender


The unmistakeable floral scent of lavender is just the soothing aroma needed to tame the raw natural flavours of Serbian juniper. Growing in Paraćin, part of the Velika Morava river valley. This botanical, often difficult to master, introduces the necessary floral tones found in some of today’s highest quality London Dry Gins.


Coriander Seeds


A gin is nothing without juniper, and you’ll find few made without coriander, either. Grown in the fields of Vojvodina in Serbia, the aroma of coriander seeds perfectly complement the juniper, providing a classically warming, spiced lemon base typical of a traditional London Dry Gin.


Cornelian cherries


Local, hand-picked cherries are, a taste of Juni’s Serbian home. This uncommon tart fruit tastes a little like sour cherry or cranberry and is carefully balanced by the notes of vanilla and cinnamon.


Other botanicals


Alongside the core botanicals, in this small batch gin, the refreshing flavour of lemon and lime peel and floral orris root – which adds depth and texture.

To finish, the light, gentle spices of cassia bark and cardamom bring a little warmth to every glass.


Juni 93 is made exclusively with organic botanicals. Wild junipers, elders and lavender flourish in the rich Serbian soil by the gin distillery, so we harvest almost all of our own ingredients. Others, such as coriander seeds, lemon, Cornelian cherry and orris root, are sourced from nearby farmers to support the local community. By using organically grown and responsibly sourced botanicals like these, it can be ensured that every batch of handcrafted gin is pure, fresh, and nothing less than stunning.


The organic Serbian juniper berries make Juni 93 pure, fresh, and extra special. Watched by the quiet magnificence of the surrounding mountains, the junipers grow wild in the highlands of Pešter at almost 5,000 feet above sea level. Every berry is handpicked and sorted by local workers, with only the best carried down to the distillery. Painstakingly laid out the berries are dried out in the hot Serbian air, turning them carefully by hand and waiting until they’re just perfect. It’s only then that the gin is started to be made.


While other distillers import their juniper, Juni 93 is unique in that they grow their own – and  even more unique for growing and distilling in Serbia. Serbian juniper appears to be better even than world-renowned Tuscan berries.Juni 93 is made exclusively with organic botanicals.

Tasting Notes


Alongside the prominent juniper, you’ll taste pine and eucalyptus with a hint of sour, summery zest. Sweet notes of vanilla and cherry are complimented by the delicate warmth of cardamom and cinnamon and hints of elderflower, elderberry and lavender.


Crafted with organic Serbian juniper berries, delicate Juni 93 replaces overly fussy, competing botanicals and artificial flavours with pure, fresh juniper. It took 93 batches to perfect the recipe. The result is something completely exceptional.


This is a London Dry Gin made to be enjoyed simply and slowly.


NOSE: A very juniper forward nose with sweet elderflower, lime and hints of earth. A subtle cherry note sits in the background along with cassia and coriander


PALATE: The palate is earthy and junipery with plenty of cassia and coriander. Slightly bitter on the middle but the subtle cherry and vanilla notes balance.


FINISH: Lovely intense citric middle and a long finish which remains citric and earthy.
