Ungava Canada Gin takes its name from the Ungava Peninsula, which belongs to the state of Quebec. The word "Ungava" comes from the ancient Inuit culture and means "towards the open water". The botanicals used in Ungava Canadian Premium Gin (including juniper, crowberries and brier) also come from the Arctic region. But why this gin has come to Canada has the following background: Trappers and gold miners have been drinking this gin in Canada for a long time, because they believe that gin has a medicinal effect on them. Some traditional production methods for Ungava Canadian Premium Gin were adopted from the ancient Inuit. The botanicals are first steeped in the alcohol and after distillation, more botanicals are added. Tasting notes:Color: Yellow. Nose: Fresh, floral, hints of juniper.
