Ungava Gin Is A New Experience


For Gin lovers and romantics, especially those who delight in botanicals, Ungava Canadian Premium Gin is an exciting find.

Originating in the northern-most tip of Québec, a remote windswept place of great beauty and solitude, Ungava derives its unique bouquet and complex flavor from six rare botanicals – Nordic Juniper, Wild Rose Hips, Cloudberry, Crowberry, Arctic Blend and Labrador Tea.  It also derives its glinting golden yellow color, similar to yellow beryl or tourmaline gemstones, from these delicate plants and berries, handpicked during the fleeting summer in the tundra.

Ungava is an Inuit term meaning “towards the open water.”  The Inuit still call this area home.  No longer nomadic, they have settled in villages along the coast or delta areas where every summer they hunt, fish and harvest by hand the rare botanicals that give Ungava its unique flavor and bouquet.

Ungava Canadian Premium Gin is now available in the United States in Florida, Tennessee and Kentucky with more than a dozen states opening up before the end of the year.  Launched in 2012, it is now in 60 countries with notable success in Europe where it has won several prestigious international spirit awards.

Packaged in sleek, thick, pristine glass, it evokes the purity of arctic ice and shows off the unusual golden color.  The simple, elegant label also features Inuktitut, the Inuit language, and its unique script.  Ungava is distilled in Québec.  It is 43.1% ABV with a suggested retail of around $32.99 for a 750 ml bottle.
