Petriot Gin Green George



Petriot Gin Green George, a homage to the vibrant folklore and natural beauty of Slovenia’s Bela Krajina region, stands out as a testament to tradition and innovation. Launched in 2021 by the visionary Jurij Petruna, this gin captures the essence of spring with its unique blend of local botanicals, including birch leaves symbolic of the folklore character Green George, who signifies the awakening of spring.

Taste Profile:

Upon the first sip, the gin reveals a classical earthy juniper base, layered with the soft, aromatic whisper of citrus peels and the distinctive spice of cardamom and cubebs. The inclusion of rosehip and chamomile adds a balancing softness, creating a harmonious blend of flavors. The finish is memorable, characterized by a peppery spark from cubebs, which smoothly transitions into lingering notes of citrus peel and cardamom, offering a taste that is as complex as it is refreshing.

Cocktail Pairings:

Green George’s versatile profile shines in a variety of cocktails. Its botanical richness finds a perfect match in the simplicity of a Gin & Tonic, where the gin’s spicy and floral notes can truly stand out, especially when garnished with strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries. For a more classic approach, the Bee’s Knees and White Lady cocktails allow Green George to display its depth and aromatic complexity, marrying the gin’s botanicals with the cocktails’ ingredients in a delightful symphony of flavors.

Overall Rating:

Petriot Gin Green George is a remarkable expression of Slovenian gin craftsmanship. Its ability to balance traditional juniper flavors with a bouquet of local botanicals results in a gin that is both a tribute to its roots and a standout in the global gin scene. Its versatility in cocktails further underscores its appeal, making it a must-try for gin enthusiasts seeking something uniquely captivating. A solid 4.5 out of 5 stars for this impressively constructed debut from Petriot Distillery, which promises an exciting journey for both the traditionalist and the adventurous spirit aficionado.

This gin’s character is a testament to the dedication of its makers and the rich landscape that inspires it. Petriot Gin Green George is not just a beverage; it’s a celebration of Slovenian culture, heritage, and the rejuvenating power of spring.
