Liviko reveals saffron-infused Crafter’s Gin
Estonian spirits producer Liviko has released a saffron-infused version of its Crafter’s Gin, made exclusively for Dubai Duty Free.
Titled Golden Saffron Gin, the release also marks and pays tribute to the duty free retailer’s 40th anniversary and will join the rest of the brand’s range in the store.
The release aims to introduce travellers to a ‘new and distinctive flavour experience’.
To create the gin, Liviko’s export director, Jörgen Herman, said the company ”blended crisp Nordic flavours with oriental notes”.
Crafter’s Golden Saffron Gin ”represents a significant milestone in the two-year partnership between Liviko and Dubai Duty Free”, Herman added.
”For Liviko, duty free is a strategic focus, as it’s where both business and leisure travellers seek new taste adventures, often igniting new trends.”
The gin has been infused with saffron, a seven-day process following distillation, and features a golden-yellow hue, along with a warm and subtle spicy aftertaste.
Made by following Crafter’s recipe #19, it is described as being ‘crisp’ and ‘herbaceous’ with the combination of saffron, lotus flower and mandarin peel softening the spirit, and ginger root providing balance to orris root’s sweet and earthy profile.
Sharon Beecham, Dubai Duty Free’s senior vice-president for purchasing, added: “We are always pleased to introduce products that are made exclusively for Dubai Duty Free.
”The addition of Crafter’s Golden Saffron Gin to our liquor listing is a testament to our mission of offering our customers unique and exceptional quality products in a world-class shopping environment and a fitting tribute to our milestone 40-year anniversary.
”We look forward to the success of this brand and to continuing to build our partnership with Liviko”.
The company recently unveiled a liquid garnish called Crafter’s Sensory Potions, which are said to ‘elevate’ cocktails.
