No.3 London Dry Gin - 70cl - 46% ABV
Since 1668, the home of Berry Bros. & Rudd has been in St James’s Street, London. With their reputation at stake, on the 21st of July 2010 the beloved yet surprisingly (given they are a veritable drinks authority) humble wine and spirits merchants produced a gin that is a testament to all that they represent. In short, No.3 Gin is a triumph of classic British Spirit.
No.3 Gin -
As always with a well-balanced and carefully crafted gin, each ingredient imparts its own character. The juniper not only gives the gin its name, but also provides the spirit with the unmistakable gin taste of pine. The sweet Spanish orange peel provides freshness in the form of softer citrus notes while the grapefruit peel gives it an extra twist. The three spices are all quite apparent too. The angelica root delivers an earthy quality and helps to make the gin dry, while the coriander seed releases a lemony flavour with a spicy, slightly peppery finish. Last but not least the cardamom pods provide their subtle yet distinctive bite.
