Warner Edwards Harrington Dry Gin
Warner Edwards // England
This dry gin was launched at the end of 2012. It is distilled in Northamptonshire in a 500-liter copper pot-still named "Curiosity", named after a cat left its paws on the cement in the distillery. It is comprised of 11 botanicals, including homegrown elderflower, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper, nutmeg, and a secret ingredient. It is brought to bottling proof of 44% ABV with spring water drawn 300 meters from the distillery. Note: This is not currently available in the U.S.
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.
"There's a five-spice thing going on here with warm orange peel coming on for the ride. A little sweetness on the mid-palate, but there's a nice earthy quality here as well which takes the gin out of the baking spices territory. The red-hot cinnamon flavor remains on the finish. This is a gin to use in sours with an Asian spin using Yuzu for your citrus juice."
