Gin

Gin has enjoyed an astonishing revival over the past few years with distilleries popping up all over the place. Whilst all will have juniper at the heart of their flavouring, the variety of additional botanical element leads to a tremendous range of styles.

  • Broken Heart Gin, Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand, 40% vol, 70cl

    Broken Heart Gin, Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand, 40% vol, 70cl

    GN10

    The story of Broken Heart gin is about remembering a friend. It begins with two Germans living in Queenstown, close to New Zealand’s stunningly beautiful Southern Alps. Joerg was a pilot and Bernd an engineer. Both philosophers and committed Master Distillers, they formed their friendship around a still and a passion for perfecting spirits of rare complexity and fine flavours.

     

    Bernd unexpectedly fell gravely ill and tragically died. To commemorate his friend, and to mark a new beginning, Joerg released Broken Heart gin.

     

    Broken Heart is London Dry gin distilled in a small pot still with wheat and molasses base spirit. Eleven botanicals are added including juniper, coriander seed, lemon peel, lavender, cardamom, cassia, cinnamon and angelica. The New Zealand alpine water gives the gin great purity allowing the botanicals to shine through, perfumed and crisp.

  • “Aviation” Gin, House Spirits Distillery, Portland, Oregon, USA, 42% vol, 70cl

    “Aviation” Gin, House Spirits Distillery, Portland, Oregon, USA, 42% vol, 70cl

    GN03

    Born in the fresh and pristine environs of Portland, Oregon, Aviation New Western Dry Gin, represents a unique partnership between pioneer House Spirits Distilling and internationally acclaimed bartender Ryan Magarian.

     

    What is the best way to enjoy Aviation Gin? As with most dry gins,  Aviation shines brightest when properly mixed in classic and modern culinary cocktails. Aviation, in particular, works best in citrus accented drinks that play off its unique notes of lavender, cardamom, Indian Sarsaparilla, and anise seed.

     

    Unlike most dry gins, however, Aviation sets itself apart with its slightly subdued juniper and citrus presence against the back drop of creamy rye spirit, which makes it, uniquely, enjoyable all by itself, both ice cold and at room temperature.

     

    With its full and weighty mouth feel, regionally inspired flavours of earth and spice, and a uniquely cool finish, Aviation is a rare expression of dry gin.

  • Hepple Gin, The Moorland Spirit Company, 45% vol, 70cl

    Hepple Gin, The Moorland Spirit Company, 45% vol, 70cl

    GN09

    A gin from a new distillery on the edge of the beautiful Northumberland National Park.

     

    A complex mix of 13 botanicals – Juniper, Green Juniper, Douglas Fir, Bog Myrtle, Lovage, Blackcurrant Leaf, Blackcurrants, Amalfi Lemon, Coriander Seeds, Fennel Seeds, Liquorice, Angelica and Orris Root.

     

    Three different processing stages are used to maximise the juniper content of Hepple gin:

     

    A traditional copper still specifically designed for precise distillations. A glass still that utilizes low temperature vacuum distillation to capture zesty notes from local botanicals, including young green juniper berries, that would be compromised by high heat. The third process uses ultra high pressure extraction to release the intricacies of ripe juniper berries, delivering additional layers of texture and finish.

     

    On the nose the gin is fresh and zesty with apple, citrus and spicy juniper and in the background a wonderful resin note from the Douglas Fir. The palate starts with fresh citrus and melon with spicy, fragrant juniper – both juicy and refreshing. The finish is very long with juniper, cedar, sweet blackcurrant and liquorice.

  • “Fifty Pounds” Rare London Dry Gin, 43.5% vol, 70cl

    “Fifty Pounds” Rare London Dry Gin, 43.5% vol, 70cl

    GN05

    Fifty Pounds Gin is produced in a small distillery located in the south-east of London, with a tradition of more than two centuries behind it. The method is carried out in a still manufactured by the legendary John Dore & Co Limited, in which a perfectly balanced, secret combination of herbs, spices, fruits and flowers, together with grain spirit (a neutral alcohol, previously distilled four times to achieve a greater purity) is distilled.

     

    The resulting distillate is left to settle for no less than three weeks, allowing the botanical essential oils of juniper berries, coriander seed, grains of paradise, savory, orange and lemon peel, liquorice and angelica root to blend perfectly with the grain spirit. Whether neat, with tonic, or in a dry martini, Fifty Pounds gin offers a unique and complex personality.
