bloodofjupiter Bleedgin Heavy Strength, ABV 45%, Systembolaget catalog number 53151 494:- 50cl
“-You can not have a band having a single named “Bleeding” without having a gin called Bleedgin!”. Master distiller Jonas Larsson went harsh on David Isberg. It awoke the mind of the creative singer, lyricist, and sommelier. A few days later a recipe was created and a train booked up north for David to try it out in the distillery ahead of the production.
This gin, spiced with juniper, cilantro, blood orange, and no less than four different chili fruits was a true challenge. Again to find a path for holding the correct balance of the ingredients and keep it flavorful without missing something out. A gin was born.
This gin is excellent to consume alone upon a cube of ice or mixed in classical drinks such as Negroni & Gin Sour. Mixed with flavored tonics such as the Mediterranean, pink pepper & spruce to name a few. The last one can be ordered at the band’s favorite pub in Stockholm, Oliver Twist nearby Slussen named Doom & Tonic. Released September the 21st 2021.
Also, a drink to honor the best ever epic doom metal band, Candlemass, created by David:

bloodofjupiter Bleedgin Unholy Strength, ABV 66,6%, Systembolaget catalog number 53152, 666:- 50cl
Later that night the journey took a lead and the pair aimed for a stronger strength of the same Gin, influenced by the popular “Navy Strength”-trend. As the band is not a nautic metal band and the connection to gunpowder and seamen is limited, the decision was to create something else, yet more powerful. So many tempting alternatives flushed them over until the spell was cast and the beverage took a shape. This monster was spawned and alive.
After aiming for strength in the land of Absinthe, the duo finally found a perfect match of balancing the flavor along with the alcohol. The main goal was to keep all the flavors and have the alcohol as a taste bearer rather than a taste leader.
A late and cold Thursday night the result was perfected and then started a long story of production delays, so the original plan for a summer release was just to forget due to issues as waiting for bottles, administration causes with Systembolaget, and the label printer not fixing the production schedule before closing for the summer holiday etc.
This Unholy Strengthened Gin is best enjoyed upon ice with a stenc or two of bitter or mixed with a powerful extra bitter Tonic or as a base in classic drinks such as Aviation, Gin Rickey or Negroni.
Finally September the 13th 2021 the world could order their bottles of unholy magic.
