Boe Superior Gin

Franz de la Boës gin recipe has been the inspiration for Boë Superior Gin, now produced in the historic Scottish village of Doune using a unique blend of 13 hand-picked botanicals that include Wild Cassia Bark from the Isle of Skye.

Boë is produced using one of the worlds very rare Carterhead Stills in an intricate process called vapour-infusion. The technique blends the essence of all the botanicals into the grain spirit while it is vaporised. This way the distillation process avoids overheating the botanicals and gently enhances and preserves the flavours of their aromatic oils.

The Botanicals 

The subtleties of Boë Superior Gin's flavour is due to the special selection and preparation of its botanicals - that finely balance the herbs and spices, so crucial to its distinctive taste and quality.

Although Juniper berries and their flavoursome oils are at the heart of Boë gin's distillation, it takes many more elements to it special. Theres the aromatic Coriander and Angelica. We include Ginger, Orris Root and Cassia Bark - or Chinese cinnamon as its sometimes known, one of the oldest of all spices. Warmth and flavour come from the Grains of Paradise. Orange and Lemon peel are there too, together with Cardamom Seeds, Liquorice, Almonds and the peppery tones of the Cubeb Berry.

And the taste? Clean, spiced and strikingly refreshing.

Don't only mix Boë Superior with a good tonic, sip it straight up on ice to enjoy the interplay of flavours.
