The Original Musgrave Gin is made up of a selection of 11 botanicals, each reflecting some aspect of the African Spice Route of old. The Musgrave Gin has expressive top notes of African Ginger, Cardamom and Grains of Paradise, whilst the citrus and other spices marry together a tale of flavor spanning a continent. The creation of this gin tells a story that criss-crosses the continent and the final product represents a family heritage of trade and adventure. So much a part of Africa’s history.

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Nose

    Cardamom is released first and a heady spiciness is released through the pineyness of the Juniper so familiar to gin.
  • Palate

    Spicy, warm Cardamom and Juniper share the first taste to the palate and is supported by the distinctive African Ginger and Grains of Paradise with vanilla, pepper and ginger notes. All this balanced by Kafir lime leaves and citrus and then complemented by the gingery spiciness of coriander.
  • Finish

    The spices marry perfectly together to give a smooth and very fragrant finish without the harshness of the spirit and there is a lingering memory long after the sip.
  • Perfect Serves

    Best served with a cooling slice of cucumber, a peppery bunch of basil or zest of pink grapefruit and rosemary.

“An aromatic gin with exotic notes reflecting the Spice Route of Africa.”


Origins

Maurice Boon Musgrave, grandfather of founder Simone Musgrave, left Plymouth in 1949 bound for Africa to start a new life exploring and discovering the people and land of Africa. Three months on a ship with a small baby, a measles outbreak and many a day of seasickness and the adventure that would change the shape of his family had begun. From then onward an African family would take on the adventure Maurice had started. The spirit of endeavor, adventure and courage lives on in granddaughter, Simone, guardian of Maurice's passion for the unusual. Musgrave Gin is no ordinary spirit - it is an artisan gin celebrated for its top notes of Cardamom, African Ginger and Grains of Paradise.
