THE PLYMOUTH GIN in its pure form as Navy with proud Vol. 57%.
Plymouth Gin was the only spirit made in England and one of only three gins in the world to carry a geographical indication certifying its traditional origin. In 2015, the owner of the distillery did not continue to extend this status.
Plymouth Gin is a gin style and brand distilled in the same premises at the Barbican in Plymouth since 1793. The production facility, the Plymouth Gin Distillery, was built in 1431 and is believed to have once been a monastery of the Dominican Order. For this reason, it is traditionally known as the Black Friars Distillery, and this name appears embossed on the gin bottles.
Personally, I always drink the first small sip neat. Then with tonic and with this gin I’m partial to citrus, hence the grapefruit and lemon!
The Tassoni Tonic by @cedratatassoni supports the citrus note. And the @mistelhain Signature Tonic helps more of a Mediterranean note. Also like instead of citrus with herbs of your own taste.
What do I taste: The bouquet smells intensely of juniper berries and citrus. In addition, there is a slightly earthy note that, together with the previous aromas creates a slight sweetness.
The taste is also dominated – as it should be – the juniper note with fruity facets. There are not only lemon notes, but other citrus fruits that everyone must discover for themselves. Rather late, one also recognizes the earthy flavors that give the body a full-bodied and slightly spicy character. The higher alcohol content enhances the aroma of this gin without being distracting.
It’s only during the finish that the alcohol reveals its power, ending the long, juniper notes and slightly sweet finish, with a peppery finish that warms the body.
