This Westbourne Strength gin from Martin Miller was created a few years after its original 40% version was released in 1999. The botanicals for both gins are the same, but the proportions differ. The gin is pot-distilled in England with two different distillations of the botanicals plus a wheat-based neutral spirit. The first is distilled after macerating the spices and earthy roots. The second is distilled with just the citrus peels. These two are blended together before a cucumber distillation is added. The gin is finally brought down to proof with Icelandic water, which in this case is bottled at 45.2% ABV.

    This style of gin takes a neutral spirit and then adds juniper berries and other natural flavorings before it is re-distilled. After distillation, additional flavors (artificial or natural) and sweeteners may be added.

Tasting Notes

"Spicy and earthy aromas are first out of the gate here, but for the most part, the botanicals work in harmony with one not really standing out except the juniper and perhaps the coriander. As you drink, this pretty much stays true except that now there is a cucumber and cinnamon dry finish. The juniper helps to keep the cucumber in check and not overwhelm the drinker. Cocktail recommendation would be a dry Martini, dirty if you must."
