V2C Barrel Aged Dutch Dry Gin 50cl
Born in Amsterdam, aged in American Oak and enjoyed by the world, this is a barrel aged gin created to be savoured
V2C Barrel Aged Dutch Dry Gin
With their Barrel Aged gin, the latest in their range, V2C have created a gin meant to be savoured. "No rush, no interruptions, no scrolling or swiping. Just truth in a glass that demands your undivided attention".
This is a gin which has a juniper-forward flavour profile, amply supported by other botanicals which are angelica, cardamom, coriander, ginger, laurel, liquorice, lemon and orange. After distillation, this is rested on American oak casks for at least six months. This ensures the gin develops some interesting oaky-vanilla notes, and an earthiness.
This blend of botanicals, and resting in the barrel gives a flavour of ginger and juniper with a hint of pepper. Cinnamon and a cedar heat from the cask are also joined by a soft caramel sweetness. Laurel and cardamom also come through, but without too much presence. Truly a gin to be savoured, with its multi-faceted flavour profile sure to give full enjoyment in a glass.

This is a gin which can easily be enjoyed slowly. Poured in a glass, and served simply with an ice cube or two.
For a longer more refreshing drink, add 50ml into a glass filled with ice. Pour over 150ml of Ginger Ale, or for a more fiery kick, Ginger Beer (we recommend Fentimans for this). Stir gently and garnish with a slice of orange and a cinnamon stick.
