Jawbox Gin has unveiled the world’s largest bottle of gin. The new bottling comes as bars and restaurants begin to reopen for business.
At 32 Litres and standing at 73cm tall, the “Jawbox Giant’s Edition” bottle is an extra large version of the brand’s Export Strength gin, which sports an ABV of 47%. That means it holds almost 46 standard bottles of gin, and might actually get you and your friends through an entire weekend..
The name and inspiration behind the new offering came from Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, in which the writer was said to have been inspired by the sight of the Belfast Hills, which he felt resembled a sleeping giant safeguarding the city. The same hills where Black Mountain heather is gathered to make Jawbox Gin.
The one-of-a-kind bottle will be showcased in the cocktail bar of luxury 5 star hotel The Grand Central in Belfast, which Jawbox Gin calls home.
The hotel has crafted a G & Tea to celebrate the occasion with a selection of delicate sandwiches, scones and sweets inspired by the botanicals and flavors of Jawbox Gin. Guests can also enjoy the stunning views overlooking the Belfast Hills and beyond whilst enjoying the new Jonathan’s Twist Cocktail, served using the gin from this giant bottle.
“We are thrilled to launch the Jawbox Giant’s Edition,” said Founder of Jawbox Small Batch Gin, Gerry White. “Our brand is inspired by the magnificent industrial era when ordinary men and women put Belfast on the map for hard graft and craft. Jawbox Export Strength is a modern expression of this uncompromising character, a character that will once again bring the hospitality industry back to the giant it was pre-lockdown.
“The higher strength liquid is a more intense expression of Jawbox Small Batch Gin and is perfect for cocktails. We really wanted to create some theatre around the bottle and this huge edition with a sleek matt black finish and gold foil accented label certainly does that.”
How long the world’s largest bottle of gin lasts seems totally up to you, but we’d recommend getting to it as soon as possible.
Jawbox Gin will be available to purchase in North America this fall. For more information, head over to the official website.
