Why did we choose Juno as the goddess to reflect our gin?
Juno, wife of Jupiter and known as the goddess of marriage and domestic harmony. She is linked to the idea of vital force, the fullness of vital energy and eternal youthfulness.
Juno is the perfect goddess to oversee the marriage of flavours that happens within the copper pot still during distillation. Ensuring that the carefully selected botanicals and the beautiful water of Mt Taranaki come to fruition as an extra-fine gin of distinction.
