Three Societies Distillery Jung One No. 1 Korean Single Malt Gin
Proof: 47% Alc/Vol
Region: South Korea
Description: Introducing June One, an extraordinary premium single malt gin crafted with utmost care by Three Societies in Namyangju, South Korea. Under the expert guidance of Assistant Distiller Byeongsu Kim, June One—aptly named as it translates to "garden" in Korean—captures the essence of Korean flavors and terroir, showcasing a truly remarkable spirit.
At the heart of June One are 11 carefully selected botanicals that define its unique profile. Juniper, coriander, cardamom, cinnamon, lemon and orange peel, pine needle, lavender, chopi (Korean sansho peppercorn), baby ginseng, and perilla leaf intertwine to create a harmonious symphony of taste. Many of these botanicals are locally and sustainably sourced, while the pine needles are meticulously hand-foraged from the trees surrounding the distillery. Each botanical is macerated in twice-distilled single malt spirit for 24 hours, ensuring optimal extraction of flavors, before the final distillation takes place in the distillery's impressive 1,000-liter copper pot still.
From the moment you encounter June One, its vibrant and inviting nose entices with aromatic notes of lime oil, green cardamom, lemongrass, and hints of genever-esque malt wine. As the journey unfolds on the palate, the floral and citrusy character takes center stage, revealing herbaceous shiso, delicate lavender, vibrant tangerine, and the gentle essence of pine sap. Cooling mint, cinnamon, and the lively presence of piquant sansho peppercorn add a captivating touch that lingers through the finish. Whether enjoyed as a sipping gin over ice with a citrus twist or as a key ingredient in your favorite cocktail, June One's robust proof and distinctive profile make it a perfect choice.
Unfiltered to preserve its authentic character, June One stands proudly at 47% ABV, offering an exceptional drinking experience that captivates the senses and ignites the imagination. Revel in its versatility as you indulge in a classic Gin & Tonic or let its spicy botanicals shine in a Martini creation of your own making.
