Tenu gin comes from the mind of Finnish Antto Melasniemi, and features botanicals from the northern, snow-covered Finnish forests including lingonberry, arctic rose and, of course, juniper. As if that’s not a compelling enough story, Tenu Gin is distilled and bottled by Finnish monks in the Valamo Monastery Distillery (which also makes a single malt). The result is a New World gin that’s subtle but nuanced and aromatic.
Our verdict: Earthy and forest-y undertones. Wonderfully complex and smooth.
