Description of the 55% ABV Blue Label Gin ...
The blue label 55 is a marriage of neutral grain spirit with 9 botanicals, 8 of which are added at distillation in small copper pot stills. The gin is then infused with delicate Saffron, prior to bottling by Scotland’s oldest independent bottler, Wm Cadenhead, Campbeltown. The saffron not only adds spice but imparts a pale-yellow colour to the gin.
Wm Cadenhead Tasting Note ...
Nose - "A more perfumed, aromatic tones with a smoothness."
Palate - "A smooth and delightfully drink with ease. With tonic it sparkles; on ice with bitters it becomes increasingly lively."
Finish - "A lively and long finish."
Perfect Serve - 1 part Blue Label / Glass filled with ice / Squeezed lime with a slice of Orange / Topped up with a premium neutral Tonic.
