An African craft gin from Procera, distilled in Nairobi with 10 botanicals, all sourced from across Africa, including Madagascan pink pepper and Moroccan orris root. However, the most important botanical here is a relatively unseen species of juniper, Juniper Procera (most gins use Juniper Communis), also known as African juniper as it only grows in the highlands of Kenya and Ethiopia. This different variety gives the gin a nuttier, earthier backbone. After distillation, the gin is bottled into stunning hand-blown bottles, also produced in Nairobi. A truly unique gin.
Procera Blue Dot is our original release and where our story first began. It is an elegant and refined expression, crafted for sipping and for use in martinis. Boasting an extraordinary depth of flavour, length of finish and breadth of complexity on the palate, Blue Dot abounds with intense juniper, subtle earthy undertones and bright spicy top notes. With the addition of our bespoke botanical salt garnish, a G&T bursts to life with a unique, savoury exuberance and inimitable character
Procera gin was founded with a dream to bring the very best of Africa to the world. Our gin is skilfully crafted in Nairobi, Kenya. It’s the world’s first gin to use Juniperus Procera, which we harvest just 70 kilometres from our distillery in Kijabe, picked from trees growing at an altitude of 2,200m. Procera captures and expresses the terroir of our continent in every sip.
Procera is proudly African, with our ten botanicals grown across our vast continent by the most passionate and dedicated farmers. From the plains of Morocco in the north-west to the Indian Ocean islands in the south-east, Africa’s sun and soils produce an unparalleled quality and range of natural produce.
Nose: Familiar earthy juniper notes arrive first, developing rich, nutty notes later on, paired with fresh citrus.
Palate: Warming spices (think peppercorn and caraway), with the intriguing nutty juniper notes remaining at the fore.
Finish: Subtly woody notes linger long on the palate.
