Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2012. Clean and bright aromas of grapefruit and pine erupt from this beauty, its savory freshness packed with mouth-watering acidity and potent depth. Formidable and rewarding. (Mar 2012)
No.3 was created to be the last word in gin for a Dry Martini. ’A Taste of Tradition’: With juniper at its heart, it unashamedly celebrates the integrity and character of traditional London Dry Gin: three fruits and three spices distilled in traditional copper pot stills.
Juniper, from Italy, not only gives gin its name, but also the unmistakable gin taste of pine and lavender. Sweet Spanish orange peel provides freshness in the form of clean, crisp citrus. Grapefruit peel gives an extra zingy lift.
Angelica root delivers an earthy quality and helps to make the gin dry. Moroccan coriander seed releases a lemon flavour and a spicy, slightly peppery finish. And finally, cardamom pods which add a spicy, aromatic, yet warm bite.
