Ungava Canadian Premium Gin originates on the northern frontier where the vast Canadian tundra meets icy seas.Its particular aroma can be traced back to six rare botanicals, native to the Arctic region, that enter its composition. Handpicked in the wild during the fleeting summer season, then infused the traditional way, they are handcrafted into an authentic gin with a unique taste to the delight of adventurous amateurs and connoisseurs alike.
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, to 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 Ungava gin's unique bouquet 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.
Inside every glass of this gin there breathes a little of the Ungava peninsula.
Connoisseurs will appreciate the mellow character of this 100% natural gin, which is surprising considering its alcoholic strength of 43.1% vol. The rare botanicals of the Ungava tundra, steeped in the traditional way, release their natural colour and aromas to yield a gin that is exquisitely well-balanced.
Resolutely contemporary in design, the Ungava bottle offers a sleek shape and clean-cut lines, with thick, pristine glass that highlights the striking natural yellow colour of the gin while evoking the purity of arctic ice. The bottle also features Inuktitut, the Inuit language, and its unique script.
Whether enjoyed on the rocks or in a cocktail, Ungava Canadian Premium Gin provides a finely-crafted original blend of aroma, taste, and visual beauty that is perfect for any occasion.
