Ounce Gin Bold
Ounce Gin // South Australia, Australia
Imperial Measures Distilling was officially established in 2014. After some first batches at Applewood Distillery, the company now has its own premises in Thebarton, Adelaide. Ounce Gin "Bold" is a pronounced juniper-style gin, with a chorus of 13 botanicals, including sage, thyme, black cardamom and pepper.
Distilled GinThis 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.
"Indeed, this is a lovely juniper-forward spirit, slightly resinous, with a hint of caraway and lemon peel, as well as a whisper of mint and cucumber. The juniper returns on the palate, and thyme makes an appearance as well. Nicely balanced overall, and should do very well in a Martini."
