Perfect for innovative cocktails and certainly a conversation starter. Made with 12 botanicals, “nature’s wild apostles,” and water, torn from the earth 80 years after it was hurled down on New Zealand’s Southern Alps, forward, which allows the natural hint of pepper. The exciting addition of three layers of citrus allows a subtle complexity that is still Juniper forward.
