To create this gin we carefully selected each botanical, including tangerine peel, as a nod to the famous nickname ‘The Tangerines’.
We worked closely with the club to create the perfect blend that represents the club and its fans in an authentic way. The club wanted to produce a premium, limited edition gin to give the fans a unique collector’s item to celebrate our partnership with the club.
Our distillers and sponsorship staff worked with the club over various meetings to decide on an authentic blend that would represent the club in the best way possible. Once we were confident with the gin itself, it was then down to our newest members of the decision-making team, Nicky Clark and Lawrence Shankland, to have the final say. The boys became part of our team for the day- from creating the gin with our distiller to bottling the liquid and hand labelling each gin.
Dundee United Collaboration Gin is made with botanicals such as marigold, black cardamom and chamomile.
Best served with a Light Tonic or Fentimans Valencian Orange Tonic garnished with a twisted tangerine peel.
A mellow floral front note brings in the citrus from the orange peel. A slight pepperiness on the foreground marries well with the juniper.
The gin opens with a natural sweetness and a gentle chamomile and marigold top note that falls away to reveal the smoky rich notes of the black cardamom mid-palate.
A long lingering tart orange with mild hints of powdered orris root.
