Gotta Have Ungava Gin!

Ungava Gin, a Canadian Gin that is strikingly golden in color and really great in cocktails. This gin surprised me and I was instantly hooked with The Bees Knees cocktail!

2 oz. Ungava gin

1 oz. fresh lemon juice

1 oz. honey

Method: Add all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain over chilled coupe glass.

Ungava has a particular aroma of around six different botanicals that are native to the Northern Frontier area of Canada. In the summer the botanicals are handpicked and infused the traditional way: Nordic juniper, wild rose hips, cloudberry, crowberry, arctic blend and Labrador tea are naturally steeped until the gin takes on its complex flavor and distinctive golden hue.
