VJOP London Dry Gin
|Origin||United Kingdom, Gin|
This is a very exciting new release from our favourite local distillers - the team at Sipsmith in Hammersmith. This packs a real punch not only the 57% alcohol but the intense Juniper notes which are at the heart of this very limited release - catch it while you can! L&S (Nov 2013)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Intense, bold nose filled with rich juniper and spice. Enters the mouth with authority delivering deep, powerful flavours while remaining well balanced and elegant. The flavours enjoy the alcoholic lift and show well. A gin for sipping, with a mixer or as a cocktail component. Rating: Silver Outstanding International Wine & Spirit Competition 2014
We've taken our LDG (London Dry Gin) recipe and tweaked it slightly - only significantly upping the juniper content. It enjoys a 3 day maceration time (Friday to Monday) which serves to add to the intensity of the finish gin. The other facet of this is a methodology we've coined 'Triple Juniper'. Having firstly upped the juniper content of the recipe quite considerably we then add another dose of the fruit just prior to distillation (adding further intensity throughout the heart cut run) as well as putting juniper in the carter head thereby offering more weight to the aromas of the gin. It is finished at 57.7%abv and is an all round stunner of a gin. A 'Gin Lover's Ultimate' you may say. The quintessential celebration of this most awesome of fruits - The Blessed Juniper.Winemaker's notes
London's first new Gin distillery for over 200 years, and at the forefront of a micro-distillery boom, all of Sipsmith's Gin and Vodka is distilled in an ornate and beautiful copper still called Prudence...in a shed...in Hammersmith.
