Poseidon Dry Gin
Much like the sea, Poseidon Gin is bold, complex and multi-layered. Starting with fresh citrus, a velvety heart and a spicy finish, this gin uses distinctive seaweed to uncover a crisp but subtle hint of the sea.
The combination of knowledge and effort are what go into creating Poseidon. Over 40 different botanicals and numerous variations, the right combination of was found. They essence of maritime passion was captured, a harmonious balance was struck and Poseidon Gin set foot into the world.
There are 12 botanicals from around the world: wakame seaweed, rosemary, cardamom, elderflower, rosehip, liquorice, ginger, grains of paradise, cubeb berries, lemon peel, coriander seeds and of course, juniper berries.
The name hints at what is to be experienced upon opening the bottle. It starts off with ocean freshness, which is then followed by intense juniper and warm spices. The aroma offers a harmonious get-together of the sea and the earth.
Upon tasting, the power of the ocean really takes over. The juniper makes way for the Wakame (seaweed) to give a warm taste of the sea, accompanied by a surprising slightly sweet hint at the end. All of this is balanced by a long velvet mouthfeel that covers the tongue in a silky smoothness.
The journey finishes warm and with lingering spices. A pleasant but subtle touch of pepper gives Poseidon that little bit of extra power.
Serve with plenty of ice, Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water and garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a slice of lemon. Or for an added citrus edge, use Fentimans Valencian Orange Tonic, which gives a slight zestiness to the G&T
For a Maritime Martini, mix equal parts Poseidon Gin and Martini Vermouth Extra Dry and garnish with olives.
