London Dry Gin
Ish // England
Gin production begins with a English-grain spirit. 12 botanicals - juniper, coriander seed, angelica root, almond, orris root, nutmeg, cinnamon, cassia, licorice, savory, lemon and orange peel - are then macerated in the spirit for 24 hours before distillation. After a 2 week resting period, the gin is then blended with water and neutral spirit to bring the proof down to 41% ABV. Note: This is not currently available in the U.S.
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.
"Nothing stands out especially on this gin which is a good thing. Sweet orange, coriander, earthy/rooty notes, licorice, cinnamon; all work in harmony. Juniper stands out throughout the gin. Clean, peppery finish with a cinnamon-y profile. A warming gin to take care of you on chilly nights. Gin and tonic is a clear choice here."
