About this deal

On botanicals alone, boasting an ostentatious 47, it might be the most complicated gin on the market, but to throw you one more curveball, it’s also built on a base spirit of molasses. I’ll grant you that; however, as for fans of contemporary style gins will likely find a new best friend here. The result is a fresh and zesty, award-winning gin that suggests eucalyptus on the nose, lime and juniper on the palate and a citrus and pine finish.

Uniting British traditions, spices of India, and the landscape of the Black Forest with masterly craftmanship, our Schwarzwald Dry Gin embodies the enigmatic character of Montgomery Collins. Fantastic on its own, its mixes quite well, with a unique and powerful aromatic presence and thick, rich, mouthfeel. Once created, the distilled spirit is rested for three months in earthenware containers and then cut to 47% ABV with soft water from the Black Forest to before being sealed in 500ml bottles.To levy the criticism only here might not be fair, but there is precious little that comes out as juniper here.

Like the Glock pistol, there is a seeming cult of afficionados that are loyalists until the day they die.Don’t just try it when you come across it, seek it out as if you haven’t tasted it yet, you’re definitely missing out. No - I was obsessed with the idea of producing a Black Forest gin whose aromas would come from local ingredients, and I was determined to breathe new life into an old recipe.

The 47 comes from the number of botanicals that go into this unique gin, and the fact it's bottled at a healthy 47%. As a whisky drinker, I find it quite complex, very floral, and almost perfumy on the nose and palate. The zingy citrus is assertive to taste upfront, but gives way to a rich bouquet of flavours including herbal juniper, juicy lingonberries, sweet liquorice, cardamom and hibiscus-like floral touches.In short, although the name “Dog” rose implied that some peoples found the plant worthless, its importance in several food cultures tells a story that’s otherwise. The Gimlet featured plenty of lime, but underneath: blackberry pie, strawberries, and other plump berry like notes jumped to the fore as well.
