Avva - means a respected grand-mother, a respected mother, any old or respectable woman in the Indian language of Dravidian. In Hebrew it means to overturn or ruin which links the reputation that gin had as ‘Mother’s Ruin’ from the Hogarth era.
Our still has been named after the founder/owners grand-mothers, Jessie Jean (J-J) and was made in Elgin by Speyside Copper Works. We believe this is the first Scottish made gin still in the whole of the UK within the small batch sector.
Orange and lime peels arrive first on the nose, but are quickly backed up by refreshing, vegetal herbs. A crackle of peppery juniper lasts throughout.
