London Dry Gin
Big Gin // Washington, USA
In contrast to the lighter, less-juniper driven gins that have come to define the Modern Style, the Big Gin brand has moved towards the traditional London dry-style that seeks a full, robust flavor (hence, the "big" in "Big Gin"). The flagship product, Big Gin, uses eight botanicals in addition to juniper: coriander, orange peel, grains of paradise, angelica, cassia, cardamom, orris, & Tasmanian pepper berry. Bottled at 47% ABV.
London Dry GinNeutral spirit flavored with juniper and other botanicals. In the US, the minimum ABV is 40%; In the EU, it is 37.5%. Originally, only made in London, this can be made anywhere. No artificial flavors or colors can be added. Only water, neutral grain spirit, and sugar (no more than 0.1g/l) can be added.
"Big Gin's LDG checks a host of favorable boxes for a new gin. The juniper on the nose is present but not aggressive and the citrus/ floral aromas are balanced by more earthy and spices tones, although a bit muddled together. On the palate, the spirit is smooth with bright edges. Flavors of spruce and pepper are tempered by a lemon cake sweetness."
