Bombay Sapphire is one of the few gins that transcended the category and with its iconic blue bottle, has become one of the world most recognised spirits. The 10 precious botanicals used in their gin are held separate from the spirit in perforated copper baskets, and when the heated vapours rise, the distinctive flavour of the botanicals are released. The result? A complex aromatic liquid that delivers a broader, more balanced flavour.
Hendrick Gin is the brainchild of long established whisky distillers, William Grant & Sons, producers of some of the best malt whisky in the world. Distilled and bottled in Scotland, Hendrick is a super premium gin with a subtly different botanicals recipe that includes a unique infusion of rose petals and cucumber alongside more traditional botanical ingredients.
ROKU is produced in the "Liquor Atelier", the specialized craft distillery for Suntory spirits and liquor.For instance, the atelier owns four distinct types of pot stills and, in a process unique to ROKU, the botanicals are divorced separately according to each feature of the extract characteristic.ROKU's complex, yet harmonious flavor is the result of the unique Japanese sensitivity captured in the blending of the carefully crafted extracts of the 14 botanicals.
Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin is an oriental-inspired spirit from The Shed Distillery in Co Leitrim that's setting the world alight. Taking its name from one of the signature botanicals, slowly dried Gunpowder tea, the recipe also includes lime, lemon and grapefruit. This will work best with a Mediterranean tonic water.
Distilled Dry Gin Bacûr owes its unique character to the botanicals used to produce it. Juniper berries, sage leaves and lemon zest are left to macerate in a solution of water and alcohol for a long time; after that, double distillation takes place, clearing the liquid from possible unwanted hints and leading to an elegant distillate with a fine, clean bouquet. The final features of this Gin are deeply related to its components, and its quality and complexity depend not only on the quantity of plants used, but also on the conditions in which aromatic compounds are extracted from each of them.
Beefeater 24 is our Master Distiller’s contribution to the Beefeater legacy. Made in the heart of London from 12 hand-selected botanicals, including Japanese Sencha and Chinese Green teas, it is a sophisticated and modern London Dry Gin, designed to inspire mixologists around the world. The inspiration for Beefeater 24 came while our Master Distiller, Desmond Payne MBE, was travelling in the Far East. Quinine is banned in Japan, resulting in tonics that are comparatively sweet. As an alternative, Desmond chose to mix his Beefeater gin with chilled green tea. The resulting gin and tea combination was remarkable and inspired Desmond to spend the next 18 months experimenting with different teas and botanical blends. The result is an exceptionally mixable gin, with a unique aromatic profile and superior smoothness, ideal for contemporary cocktails.
Nose: Full of winter berries and a touch of port. A good oak and a little cereal hanging in the substratum. Palate: Sweet and thick. The port note is chewy and rich with notes of barley sugar and cereal and lots of juicy fruit and berries, a tad cloying. Finish: Long and fruity and quite sweet.
