Born from junipers, shaped by passion

The story of junimperium gin started with love for premium quality handcrafted gin. aspiring to create a rare harmony between centuries of traditions and something completely unique. clear idea and vision about our gin along with more than a year of tireless tests and trial distillations with the best juniper berries and one of a kind botanicals led to the dream becoming a reality in early 2019 when junimperium distillery opened its doors.

“The process of creating our gin felt a lot like painting. pure alcohol being the canvas, botanicals and berries being the paints."
