Original Recipe Gin Description ...
The fifty pounds gin's name is derived from the £50 levy imposed on home distillers by George II in 1736 in an attempt to curb production. The gin uses a grain distillate, previously distilled four times, and a process known as ‘batch process distillation', whereby the heads and tails of the distillate are discarded and only the heart of the spirit is used. Triple filtered the resulting distillate is macerated with the handpicked botanicals, sourced from three different continents, for no less than three weeks. The final step is to balance the distillate obtained with the same type neutral spirit, together with demineralized water.
Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...
Nose - "The resulting gin is crystal clear with fragrant aromas of juniper and coriander, accompanied with citrus and spice."
Palate - "Smooth and complex the palate displays juniper balanced with citrus and warm spice, finishing long with freshness and very clean."
