The Dark Side of Gin

He managed to use the pitch blackberries of the Sambucus Nigra shrub to stimulate the immune system. Carefully balanced with black Ceylon tea, this exquisite variant of the original Copperhead recipe will pleasantly surprise your senses. Seven ingredients were selected: Juniper berries, Elderberry, Black Ceylon tea, Orange Zest, Angelica, Cardamon and Coriander seeds.

About the Producer
During the summer of 2013, the passionate pharmacist, Yvan Vindevogel, gets triggered by an article which tells the fascinated story of Gin. He has been a pharmacist for many years and one day he read that article about how Gin used to be used in medicine. He owns his own hotel in Belgium, so it is not surprising that he noticed the rise in Gins popularity all across Europe.
Copperhead brings the alchemist history of Gin back to the spotlight. For centuries alchemists were looking for their “Elixir of Life”, a way of extending life until eternity. During his pursuit, and much to his own surprise, he conjured up an exquisite composition, using a copper pot still and a recipe based on five essential botanicals: angelica, juniper, cardamom, orange peel and coriander seed. The medicinal effect of the juniper berries, which is the bases of every gin, is known since dawn, and was an extremely popular product as a medicine.
