Elephant Gin has announced the launch of its newest creation, the new Orange Cocoa edition.

Elephant Gin combines its award-winning London Dry Gin with fresh, organic Spanish oranges and roasted cocoa beans to create a bright, zesty and velvety flavour profile. Since the aroma, taste and texture of a fresh orange contains much more body than orange peel alone, Elephant Gin has vacuum distilled the whole orange to create an intensely aromatic distillate that adds extra freshness and complexity.

Handcrafted with the highest quality production standards, each batch of London Dry Gin is distilled using fourteen botanicals, including rare African ingredients, to create its distinctive flavour profile with no artificial sweeteners or colours.

To taste, the botanical and herbaceous notes of Elephant Gin give the Orange Cocoa edition its full-flavoured base; the organic orange and cocoa beans add a highly aromatic character and a rare freshness; the zesty and sweet citrusy notes of the orange also combine with the dry, velvety and chocolatey flavours of the cocoa bean to create a textured and bright gin that works well as part of carefully balanced cocktails.

The glass bottles are custom-made; decorated with traditional Maasai beads, handcrafted by three women from the Kenyan Maasai tribe; adorned with handwritten labels; embossed with a crest and sealed with natural cork.

Founders Tessa and Robin Gerlach were inspired to create their range of premium gins following their adventures in Africa. As with the entire range, 15% of the profits from every bottle of Elephant Orange Cocoa Gin sold will be donated to African elephant conservation in an effort to support the preservation of African wildlife and their magnificent habitat.
