During the summer of 2013, an article describing the fascinating story of gin intrigued Yvan Vindevogel, enthusiastic pharmacist. Inspired by the medicinal history of that potion and consequently, its connection to his profession, he set out to create not just a regular gin and tonic, but also the one where you could be your own alchemist. Against the current trend, Copperhead did not want to create a new western dry gin, but rather attempted to concoct the best London Dry, bringing gin back to its roots. For months, a compilation of different ingredients grew in order to create Copperhead gin, and various batches were made in search of the perfect balance. Finally, it came down to a selection of five ingredients: juniper berries, cardamom, angelica, coriander seeds and orange peel.
