Procera: African Juniper Gin now available in Oz

Procera gin was founded with a dream to bring the very best of Africa to the world. Proudly distilled in Nairobi, Kenya, at 1638 metres above sea level, it’s the world’s first gin to use Juniperus Procera, which is harvested just 70 kilometres from the distillery. Procera captures the terroir of Africa in every sip.

Master Distiller Roger Jorgensen says: “My whole career I’ve been striving to make the perfect martini gin. When we distilled that first handful of fresh, green Procera berries, I knew immediately that African juniper was going to change the world of gin.”

Alessandro Palazzi from Duke’s Bar in London says: “If I could only take one gin to a desert island for my martini it would be Procera.”

The Procera Gin Team

More than any ingredient, a gin’s juniper defines its backbone of character and reveals the terroir of its origins. We harvest our berries at the end of the short rains with the local community who live near the highland forest of Kijabe at 2200 metres. These equatorial, high altitude, sun-drenched junipers are what create the distinctive nutty and earthy flavours of Procera.
