Scapegrace Black Gin Review

From the land of Taika (Waititi that is) comes an intriguing Gin that is packaged in a tall, square, black bottle. Scapegrace Black Gin is its name.

Yes, a Black Gin.
No, we don’t know what that means.
But we’re here to find out!

Here’s what its makers have to say about it:

The New Zealand-based Scapegrace Distillery was founded by brothers-in-law Mark Neal and Daniel McLaughlan in 2014. Scapegrace Gin was created with the mission to not just break the rules, but to create their own.

Scapegrace Black begins with intense juniper and the addition of premium, exotic botanicals. Master distiller Anthony Lawry, one of New Zealand’s first single malt whisky distillers, uses a combination of local sweet potato, aronia berries, pineapple and saffron, as well as butterfly pea flower sourced from Southeast Asia, to create a flavor profile that has wowed bartenders and gin fans worldwide.

Butterfly pea flower, in its natural state, has electric blue petals. Steeped, the petals produce a rich, intensely flavorful tea, with that same neon coloring, and gorgeous, soft earthy, citrus notes. Using exact temperatures and timing with their botanicals, Scapegrace has created a truly spectacular gin with a vibrant flavor and beautiful, midnight hue.

From ingredients that we’ve never heard of to a color changing magic trick, calling this Black Gin intriguing would be a gross understatement. To find out if this Black Gin from New Zealand is any good, click the play button on the following video:
