Ungava Gin launches a hot new flavour - Ginger

Announcement

A first flavour innovation for Québec’s beloved gin brand

Cowansville, QC, June 15, 2021– Ungava gin, Québec’s #1 local gin brand1, is proud to announce its very first flavoured innovation, Ungava Ginger, proudly crafted in Québec. Ungava Ginger delivers a truly unique taste thanks to the ginger extract. When combined with the smooth signature taste of Ungava gin, it creates a delicious blend with a spicy warming finish.

A few weeks after announcing its 10-year anniversary in Québec under the theme “Gin Ungava en fête”, the popular gin brand unveils its innovation, Ungava Ginger, crafted with a unique blend of Arctic botanicals from Northern Quebec, such as nordic juniper, Arctic blend, Labrador tea, crowberry, cloudberry and wild rose hip. It is made from 100% natural ingredients.

“The entire team is excited to launch our ginger flavoured gin made in Québec,” said Frédéric Boucher, Director, Sales at Ungava Spirits. “Our signature yellow gin has been—and remains—a local favourite, and now we have carefully crafted a new spirit that’s as exceptionally smooth as the original. We are extremely proud of this release, that is sure to please gin lovers! You will find its distinctive taste to be smooth and warming, with arctic notes and a spicy finish. The wood notes balance the spiciness of ginger and unique aromas of Arctic botanicals.”

We invite all gin lovers to first try our gin neat, on the rocks and then in cocktails to discover your own style and preference. Why not mix it with tonic for a new spin on a classic? For original cocktail ideas, you can try the Gingerific, a simple and delicious way to discover the aromas of the new Ungava Ginger gin, the Ginger Mule, a creative take on the timeless cocktail, or the Wild Berry where ginger and mint complement one another, and wild berries quench your thirst and indulge your sweet tooth. These three cocktail recipes are available on ginungava.com.
