Gordon Gin is one of the oldest gins in all of England, having been founded around 1769 where it almost immediately established itself as a flagship product in bars and pubs. The big turning point will come in 1925 when Gordon will receive an authorization to trade and therefore we will see a great growth of national and international business. The recipe is classic and relatively simple: juniper, coriander and a secret blend of aromatic herbs.
To produce gin it is necessary to “aromatize” an alcoholic base with some elements of which one of the components or often the main one is juniper. This can happen in various ways: either through maceration of the botanicals in alcohol, which is then redistilled to find a colorless and “cleaner” product, or the botanicals can be placed in a container placed above the alembic, so that alcohol in the form of vapor extracts aromas and perfumes.
Colorless and clean. On the nose typical notes of the botanicals used of juniper, coriander, bay leaf and rosemary. Fresh and intense on the palate.
Perfect at the end of a meal or as a meditation drink, excellent for creating high quality refreshing cocktails!
