Silverback VSOG is a Sherry Cask-Finished Expression.
Every step of the process leading up to the release of Silverback VSOG has been a labour of love, from selecting the individual Sherry Cask to precisely judging the amount of ageing required.
The concept of ageing gin in casks isn’t new – it dates back to the 18th and 19th Centuries when spirits were transported in barrels – but it’s unfamiliar to many people. Gorilla Spirits would argue that a good cask-aged gin is even more interesting than whisky. Silverback VSOG (Very Special Oaked Gin) has the wonderfully complex high notes of gin married with the depth of flavour brought about by the cask; silky spice, a hint of vanilla, dried fruit and a sweet smokiness. It’s a perfect after dinner digestif or can be used for a riff on a classic cocktail such as a Martinez or an Old Fashioned.
Silverback VSOG is sold in individually numbered 50cl bottles, beautifully adorned with highly figured metal labels.

Show your love for animals and the natural world in an unexpected way: by sipping on premium quality drinks from Gorilla Spirits.
From spiced rum, to coffee liqueurs, to a super smooth vodka, this do-gooding distiller crafts small-batch, award-winning spirits at their HQ in Hampshire.
As their name suggests, Gorilla Spirits supports the conservation of mountain gorillas. These gentle giants are an endangered species, at serious threat of extinction.
But small increases in their numbers look promising and that’s down to the hard work and dedication of governments and conservation organisations. The Gorilla Organisation is one of those, working with communities at the forefront of gorilla conservation in Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
By donating £1 from every bottle of their drinks, Gorilla Spirits is supporting the good work of The Gorilla Organisation, from the field workers in Africa to the fundraising and communications team in London. They nickname this donation a GAT – “Gorilla Added Tax.”
So every time you savour a glass of Gorilla Spirits, you’ll be making a difference to this iconic endangered species and the people fighting the threats they face.
