The botanicals used in FAIR Juniper Gin are sourced in the Cognac region of France and across Central Asia through local organic co-ops.
The juniper berries are sourced from a nature reserve in Uzbekistan, Central Asia. Agriculture is the chief source of income for the mainly rural population, but many farmers live below the poverty line. Fairtrade spices, as the juniper berries, cardamom and coriander, are sourced in the Varganza village, in the region of Samarkand. The Dustkul Bogi cooperative has three main objectives: to increase production, develop the social environment and develop organic production.
After sourcing, everything is shipped to the famous region of Cognac in France, to be distilled. First, they macerate high quality juniper berries and spices (coriander, cardamom, angelica roots and grains of paradise) for one week. The ingredients are micro-distilled in a one shot process in a Stupfler still (a type of alambic copper still), before being bottled in the Cognac region.
The gin tastes soft and delicate on the palate moving to a fresh and strong juniper flavour with an exquisite balance of fragrant spices.
About FAIR®: FAIR was founded in 2009 by Alexandre Koiransky. Alexandre follows his own intuition, his love for people, his heart.
FAIR are an independent spirits brand, dedicated to quality spirits that are sourced ethically and sustainably. FAIR believes in treating all people fairly. Their vision has taken them all over the world to source the best ingredients for our high-quality spirits. FAIR believe that all people involved, in every stage of the process, should be treated equally.
First, FAIR spend a great deal of time sourcing the finest Fair Trade ingredients for their spirits; such as organic quinoa from the 3000 m high Altiplano plateau, organic sugar cane grown in the Belizean sun, organic arabica from Mexico, natural juniper berries from Uzbekistan, etc.
Then they ship everything to the famous region of Cognac in France, where FAIR’s Master Brewer / Distiller, Philip Laclie, with generations of French ‘savoir faire’, has perfected his techniques to make the FAIR line of spirits.
