Minus 33 was originally crafted by scientist at the Locabev Laboratory in Rosyth. Minus 33 comes in at 33% so technically does not qualify as a London Dry Gin but It is a Juniper distilled spirit (which is also one of their taglines).
After 3 years and 539 test tubes of experimentation Locabev decided that the optimum strength for a really smooth spirit was 33%. This makes it the perfect drink for those on a diet as it comes in at 46 calories per serve. The decision to have a gin at 33% came after blind taste tests and those doing the tests came back and said they preferred the 33% version. Which is fantastic news when you have just started a Gin company and it turns out you don’t have an EU category Gin.
Although Minus 33 was conceived in the lab, it’s now crafted by Cory the genius behind Silent Pool, to Sams recipe.
To taste Minus 33 it is fresh and floral with hints of juniper, citrus, lavender, elderflower and angelica.
We have worked with Minus33 loads in the past and every time he does a tasting (assuming he hasn’t broken his leg), you are in for a treat, expect lab coats and cocktails.
Remember we will be running two tasting events at Piping Live on Wednesday 9th August (from 5pm) and Friday 11th at the Piping Centre, Glasgow.
Tickets are available for both nights and can be found following the below links, Wednesday is nearly sold out though.
