Ungava Canadian Premium Gin originates in the northern frontier where the vast Canadian tundra meets icy seas.
This magnificent land has been home to the Inuit people and their ancestors for thousands of years. Still nomadic two generations ago, the Inuit have settled in villages along the coast or at the river deltas where, every summer, they continue to hunt, fish and harvest the precious gifts of the tundra before the onset of another long, hard winter.
With total respect for the environment and Inuit traditions, the rare plants and berries that impart a unique bouquet to Ungava gin are delicately picked and selected by hand. For many years gin was a favourite tipple of explorers, gold prospectors and trappers in Canada, prized for its reputed medicinal qualities. With Ungava gin, an original recipe is produced in a traditional way: Nordic juniper, wild rose hips, cloudberry, crowberry, arctic blend and Labrador tea are naturally steeped until the gin takes on its complex flavour and distinctive sunny hue.
