The Seven Deadly Gins
According to Black Horse tradition the seven deadly gins are: envy, gluttony, greed or avarice, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath. You can find a list and meanings and flavours of the seven deadly gins below.
Coming from the Morlaity Gin, Black Horse has developed 7 amazing gins that are a must have in any serious gin collecters selection.
All our lables are inspired by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Pieter was the most significant artist of Dutch and Flemish Renaissance painting, a painter and printmaker from Brabant, known for his landscapes and peasant scenes.
Bruegel was born at a time of extensive change in Western Europe. Humanist ideals from the previous century influenced artists and scholars. Italy was at the end of its High Renaissance of arts and culture, when artists such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci painted their masterpieces. In 1517, about eight years before Bruegel’s birth, Martin Luther created his Ninety-five Thesesand began the Protestant Reformation in neighboring Germany. Reformation was accompanied by iconoclasm and widespread destruction of art, including in the Low Countries.
Gluttony – Caramel Gin
Lust – Pomegranate Gin
Pride – Blueberry Gin
Envy – Kiwi Gin
