Plymouth Gin 70cl
Rich and smooth tasting, it is the result of a balanced blend of seven hand-selected botanicals.
Made in the Blackfriars Distillery in Plymouth (hence the name), Plymouth Gin has a rich heritage. Its 200 year old recipe is a closely guarded secret, but contains 7 botanicals; Juniper Berries, Coriander Seed, Orand Peel, Lemon Peel, Angelican Root, Green Cadamom and Orris Root.
This gives this gin a rich, deep, but fresh aroma of piney juniper which is followed by herbal earthy notes of coriander and cardamom.
In the mouth this is a creamy, full-bodied gin. Extremely smooth, it coats the mouth well. It has fresh juniper notes, but this is pierced by a subtle sweetness, and a deliciously fresh lemon bite.
This truly is a delicious, and enjoyable gin.
When combined with a neutral tonic (we recommend The London Essence Indian Tonic), the juniper and citrus tastes are really enhanced by the carbonation.
Or how about a classic from the archives of the British Royal Navy? The original Pink Gin. In a mixing glass filled with ice, add 60ml of gin and 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters. Stir to chill the drink, and then strain into an old fashioned glass. Garnish with a twist of orange peel. (If this is a little strong for you, add a similar amount of water to the gin).
