Gin, naturally infused with butterfly pea flower and rose

With its strikingly vibrant deep violet colour, Ver Viola is a beautifully floral London Dry gin, naturally infused with organic butterfly pea flower and organic rose. It makes for delicious summery cocktails and takes a gin and tonic to new heights when a dash is added.

Ver Viola has been created using the distillery’s field-to-bottle spirit distilled from heritage grain and distilling it for a third time with 17 botanicals. The resulting botanical spirit is then hand-filtered through beds of specially selected organic butterfly pea flowers and organic rose petals which gives it its vivid hue. Interestingly, Butterfly pea flower is a natural PH indicator; when tonic or citrus is added Ver Viola changes colour from deep violet to pink. However, Ver Viola is a gin that surpasses the gimmickry of its colour changing abilities.

Ver Viola Distillery Edtion sold out instantly when launched in 2019

Co-Founder and Managing Director, Tagore Ramoutar, said "Ver Viola was a big success when it was first launched, as a limited Distillery Edition early in 2019, I am thrilled to see it joining our core product line"

Ver Viola and Organic Rose Petals

We felt that the last thing the world needed was another flavoured or gimmicky gin. With that in mind, we set out to create a gin that truly represents the flowers of spring, but still held true to our distillery’s core values of quality and authenticity. Ver Viola starts as floral London dry gin, that goes through a long infusion of brilliant natural purple pea flowers. This richly coloured gin is then slowly poured over a bed of organic rose petals, allowing the floral essence or the flowers to be imparted to the gin. No sugar of other flavours are added after this, and it bottled at full strength.

The result, is a gin the retains the characterizes of a London Dry Gin, but has a depth of floral complexity, and a colour that lends it perfectly to used in striking cocktails. Ver Viola a true gin, and a beautiful representation of spring.

Ver Viola is bottled at our distillery, the Old Depot Oxford, where each bottle has its label hand-applied and the bottle is then hand-dipped in British wax to finish off this wonderful striking gin.
