Brecon Chocolate Orange Gin
Brecon // Wales
The Penderyn Distillery opened in 2000 as a whisky distillery. While waiting for its whisky stock to mature, the distillery decided to produce other spirits with quicker turnover. One of these spirits was Brecon Gin, which now serves as the base for a range of flavored gins released in 2019, including their Brecon Chocolate Orange Gin.
Flavored GinA gin flavored, either naturally or artificially with the (pre)dominant flavor(s) listed on the label.
"Does exactly what it says: it's like a orange flavored bonbon. Or Pim's Orange Biscuits. Lots of cocoa powder and vanilla with big notes of orange peel, while the classic gin flavors like juniper, orris root and lemon peel very much stay in the background."
