Review for Jawbox Gin...
The Small Batch Gin is Ireland's first single estate gin, distilled at Echlinville Distillery in Newtownards, County Down, on behalf of 'The Jawbox Spirits Company'. The name was derived from the old Belfast Sink, commonly known as a 'Jawbox'. The distillation process involves a combination of maceration and vapour distillation, in which eleven botanicals are used, three of which are a closely kept secret.
Tasting Note by Gerry White ...
Nose - "Cardamom jumps to the fore, bringing a fiery, slightly curried spice with it. Juniper comes through strongly, followed by a bright citrus."
Palate - "Jawbox Small Batch Dry Gin classic feel comes through to the mouth, with the lemon peel and coriander seed lead citrus combining with the cubebs and cardamom spice to hold the juniper aloft. Liquorice brings sweetness and a viscous mouthfeel across the board, but the resinous, waxy juniper reigns supreme here - bringing an almost savoury feel to proceedings."
JB Gin and Ginger - 2 parts JB into a chilled Highball filled with ice / Ginger Ale and top up with Fever tree tonic.
