About Opihr European Edition Gin
OPIHR's European edition blends fragrant myrrh and the distinct aromatic bitterness of cascarilla bark. Inspired by Venice’s 500+ year rich spice trade history and the Italian love affair with cascarilla bark used to create highly aromatic tonics, bitters and vermouths. This is a bold, savoury-led spiced London Dry gin with balanced bitter notes and mixes perfectly with sweet vermouth and Campari to create a spiced twist on a classic Negroni cocktail.
While cascarilla bark is not native to Europe, it is present in any bitter liqueurs in the south of the continent and adds an aromatic and fragrant twist to OPIHR’s flavour profile.
DISCOVER THE JOURNEY ALONG THE ANCIENT SPICE ROUTE
Ophir is a region famed for its wealth and riches which prospered during the reign of King Solomon. The King regularly received cargoes of gold, silver and spices from Ophir and whilst its exact location remains a mystery, it is thought to have been in the Orient along the Ancient Spice Route – a network of sea routes that link the East with the West.
The routes stretch from the West coast of Japan through the Islands of Indonesia, around India and the Middle East – and from there, across the Mediterranean and into Europe. Traditionally merchants would travel thousands of miles along the route, trading exotic spices and botanicals from distant lands.
THE OPIHR RANGE
To continue the journey of flavour discovery, OPIHR launched three Regional Edition gins – European Edition, Arabian Edition and Far East Edition. Each are routed in particular regions along the Ancient Spice Route, drawing inspiration from unique and exotic global flavour trends.
The three Regional Editions combine the unmistakable taste of OPIHR London Dry Gin with distinctive botanicals from along the Ancient Spice Route and share our increasingly adventurous exploration of authentic regional flavours that make our gins distinctly unique, bringing new and exciting tastes to the palate. And that’s not even counting the ready to drink collection: all you need to do for the perfect gin cocktail is just twist and go.
