Sacred Licorice Gin
Sacred // England
Sacred Gins are produced by vacuum-distillation in the home of distiller Dan Hart in Highgate, London. This gin is part of a series that emphasizes one botanical; in this case, licorice root.
Flavored GinA gin flavored, either naturally or artificially with the (pre)dominant flavor(s) listed on the label.
"This very unusual gin places its emphasis on licorice root. The juniper is much gentler here than in a typical London dry, and one does not find the bite of coriander or citrus peel one might expect. Instead, the subtle notes of licorice linger on the palate with a perception of mild sweetness. This esoteric gin could be combined with a more traditional one to make a sort of Old Tom or be enjoyed in cocktails that take advantage of its unique flavor profile. It's not an all-purpose gin, but it is a beguiling one."
