Review: Black Fox Cucumber Gin #7

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 6, 2020

Black Fox Distillery (located at 245 Valley Road Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) was founded by John Cote and Barb Stefanyshyn-Cote, two third generation farmers who have farmed, studied, consulted and participated in agriculture on five different continents.

John told me that their distillery is a bit different from most of the others in the area as John and Barb ferment, distill and age all of their spirits right there at the distillery. According to John, in Saskatchewan approximately 90% of craft distilled products are coming from NGS (nuetral grain spirit) purchased from large manufactures. Black Fox Distillery is trying to show the world that there should be a bit more craft in craft spirits.

One of their craft spirits is Black Fox Cucumber Gin #7.

According to John:

Once you open the bottle you will understand how many cucumbers we have to pick to create this product.  We wanted to create a unique product that was very cucumber forward. The recipe also includes a bit of caraway to accentuate the flavours.  I mixes best with soda or even ginger ale (also makes a nice mojito).

The Cucumber Gin is bottled at 42 % abv, and here is a link to my full review:

Review: Black Fox Cucumber Gin #7

“… The spirit has a nice gin forward aroma with both juniper and coriander spice apparent in the breezes. And of course there is a very real cucumber taint within the air as well …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with one of John Cote’s serving suggestions, Cucumber Gin and Ginger Ale.
