Blind Tiger Imperial Secrets is a smooth and aromatic gin distilled using three individually distilled black teas from Assam, Cashmere and Yunnan. Eight other more traditional botanicals join these teas, resulting in a highly floral and quite spicy gin. The teas bring a gently warming character to the spirit. The well balanced complexity makes this gin great served neat or paired with ginger beer. The name Bind Tiger derives from the prohibition era, when speakeasies circumvented the law by selling tickets to see a "blind tiger" in the back room, and offering a complimentary gin cocktail with each ticket.
