Botanical Profile

Unknown. The exact botanicals and recipe are shrouded in secrecy, but Iron Ball’s official website states the base spirit used to make the gin is “handmade from fermentation to distillation using freshly cracked coconuts and pineapples with hints of juniper, hillside ginger and lemongrass”.

This in and of itself is an interesting concept as most gins are made using a neutral grain spirit base after which botanicals are added to the mix. By making a gin with a base of fermented coconuts and pineapples the resulting gin itself takes on very strong fruit flavours from the beginning which are then complimented by additional botanicals in the still.

If pushed to take a guess at some of the other botanicals, I felt some cinnamon/nutmeg warmth and spice, possibly a bit of black pepper kick, and the coriander seed undernotes.

Nose

Super fruity. Pineapple sweetness coming through very strongly but not in a sickly overwhelming way. Slight ginger and lemongrass notes. Juniper’s recognisable piney quality very much lacking.

The Take Home

Iron Balls overall left a great impression on me and I felt it really pushed the limits of what can be defined as a gin. You could tell how much time and effort had been put into the gin, from the handcrafted glass bottles reminiscent of an old naval mine sliced in half, to the handwritten batch number written by hand, to the beautiful liquid gold contained within.
