Saturday tasting – gins – 12pm-3pm
This week it’s Gin o’Clock at Ann et Vin in Newark. Join us and Bob Monyard from Compass Spirits as we taste six gins, all guaranteed to delight your tastebuds!
On offer will be:
Bath Gin 40% – as recommended by Suzy Atkins in the Daily Telegraph, this gin is known for its use of exotic botanicals, including: cassis bark, lemon and orange peel, liquorice, cardoman, angelica and cubeb berries.
Hepple Gin 40% – a Gold Medal winner and highly recommended, the botanicals in this gin include: lovage, douglas fir, blackcurrant leaf and fruit and bog myrtille as well as the more usual juniper, orris root, angelica, liquorice, citrus fruit etc. The result is a super fresh tasting gin, complex and yet light with a long aftertaste.
Silver Fox Gin 45% – crafted with eight botanicals. It is blended by a master distiller using 100% English Grain Spirit, distilled in an English Copper Pot and bottled in England.
Burleigh’s Signature London Dry Gin 40% – this Signature London Dry Gin is distilled with 11 of the world’s finest botanicals including silver birch, dandelion, burdock and elderberries. Incredibly smooth and balanced, it is perfect for a classic gin and tonic with a twist of orange zest or a wedge of freshly cut grapefruit.
Burleigh’s Export Strength Gin 47% – this gin is expertly distilled to the same botanical recipe as the Signature Gin. Bottling at a higher ABV creates an expression of the recipe with a markedly different profile, perfectly suited to a Martini or Negroni cocktail, or a more robust and aromatic gin and tonic.
Burleigh’s Distillers Cut Gin 47% – this is an exceptionally crisp and fresh gin. Using the same 11 botanicals as our Signature Gin in a different ratio, this gin shows a higher proportion of softer, sweeter, more floral ingredients making it perfectly suited to cocktails such as the Martinez and the Tom Collins.
