BYO Angelica - 15cl - 40% ABV
The third most common botanical in gin production, angelica is rarely the star of the show. Understandably too, as it’s profile – earthy, rooty and reminiscent of bitter wormwood – hasn’t got much appeal in it’s own right.
Used as a backdrop, though, angelica root provides a bridge, a base, added depth and a platform for other botanicals to shine, in particular juniper. With many shared compounds, angelica acts as a support to juniper and coriander seed and is essential as an ingredient when looking to build the core of a gin.
