Plymouth Gin is unique in that it is both a gin brand and gin style. A Plymouth-style gin can only be produced in Plymouth, England. The Plymouth Gin brand was first distilled in 1793 at the historic Black Friars Distillery and is (currently) the only gin brand produced in the city. It is made with grain spirit and seven botanicals: juniper berries, coriander seed, orange and lemon peel, green cardamom, angelica root and orris root. After distillation, the gin is then bottled at 41.2% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"The coriander and citrus peels are first to hit your senses. Juniper is present, of course, but doesn't play a major part of the aroma. The gin is soft on the palate and long on the coriander and cardamom. The gin is a bit cinnamon-y on the finish and provides the gentlest of bites-- a nibble really. If you are making a martini, you may want to go light on the vermouth here. A better alternative would be to have a Pink Gin cocktail instead."
