Ableforth's Bathtub Gin 70cl
Ableforth's Bathtub Gin
The award-winning Bathtub Gin takes a while to perfect, but it's worth it.
First, copper pot-distilled gin is made with juniper, coriander and other fragrant botanicals, but it doesn't stop there. Instead, they take a portion of this gin and painstakingly infuse it with a further six fresh botanicals - a process which takes a whole week to doÃƒÆ’¢Ãƒ¢‚¬Å¡¬¦(which might seem like a lot of effort, but you get out what you put in as they say, and if they want a delicious gin then it needs to be made deliciously!)
This infusion process allows those fresh botanical flavours, too delicate to survive traditional distillation, to shine through and Bathtub Gin is left with its unique flavour and distinctive hue.
Nose: Fresh and bold juniper leads the way with fragrant citrus and cardamom. Notes of fresh orange peel and cinnamon add to an enticing nose.
Taste: Juniper again leads, but there's plenty more besides. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy whilst the cloves, coriander and cardamom offer depth.
Finish: Here the supporting botanicals really shine with lingering cardamom and orange peel on the tail.
Bathtub Gin tastes great with premium tonic and a wedge of orange.
