Clemengold Gin 50cl€16,96
ClemenGold Gin is named for the signature flavor of the South African Mandarin Orange also called a Clemengold. With the orange and the signature juniper, it includes botanicals of orange zest, cinnamon, honey, almond, angelica, orris root, and coriander. This strikes us as a classic dry style of gin with citrus forward notes familiar to enthusiasts of gins from the Mediterranean. Hope on Hopkins Distillery was founded on the elusive dream of many white-collar workers toiling in cubicle walls: Lucy Beard and Leigh Lisk "abandoned" London to found the distillery in Cape Town, South Africa for the purpose of making...
CAORUNN SMALL BATCH SCOTTISH GIN 70CL€23,09
Caorunn Gin (pronounced: "kay-roon") is a Scottish gin made at the whisky distillery Balmenach in Speyside. It is made from grain--presumably barley--and infused with 11 botanicals including heather, bog myrtle, rowan berry, dandelion, and coul blush apple, which are all considered to be Celtic for a "truly Scottish gin." (We must assume—it being a gin—that there is a healthy dose of juniper as well.) The brand is overseen by Inver House Distillers, itself a subsidiary of International Beverage Holdings Limited. In the January, 2014 edition of Tasting Panel Magazine, Anthony Dias Blue gave it a somewhat rare 95pt rating and remarked, "I...

The gin is made blends traditional London dry style botanicals (juniper, fennel, rose hip, coriander) with Indonesian spices (lemongrass, cloves, cubeb pepper, cinnamon).

Even the bottle is meant to be a combination of East and West with a genever style bottle designed with Indonesian patterns. The gin is produced out of Herman Jansen in the Netherlands.

I crack open my juniper berries by hand. After we distill, we fill, cork, and label the bottles by hand. I go door-to-door to local bars and liquor stores to sample my gin and hand deliver every bottle." The gin itself is a traditional London...

Glendalough Rose Gin - 70cl€37,00
This fresh, rose-petal gin was first made to honour the head distiller's mum, Rose, at his little brother's wedding. Rose had recently passed away, and this was his way to have her there in spirit - literally. Carefully-tended flowers, from her rose garden are slowly vapor distilled with wild roses and plants from the mountains around the distillery to make this an intensely floral gin. After distilling, the gin is then further infused with even more roses to deepen the flavours and give it its lovely pink hue. This is not "just another pink gin", far from it. The depth...

GLENDALOUGH WINTER GIN 500ML€34,95
GLENDALOUGH WILD BOTANICAL GIN 41% 70CL€39,00
Glendalough Gin is released in dedicated seasonal batches said to be limited to 3,000 bottles. Each of the 4 seasons is represented owing to the "unpredictable Irish weather resulting in an ever changing array of botanicals, berries and fruit." This suggests to us that the year-to-year releases may differ in flavor (and perhaps even botanicals) even if labeled in the same season, implying a true "vintage" gin. The botanicals themselves are at least partially harvested by foraging in the wild in Wicklow County. The spring edition is made with juniper, coriander, angelica, orris, orange, lemon, liquorice, cinnamon, sorrel, beech leaves,...

Bombay Sapphire Star -70cl€53,00
Bombay Sapphire gin is the well-known gin in the blue-tinted bottle. First launched in 1987, it is the product of Madison Avenue design firms and herbal blends from England based upon the London Dry flavor profile. The Star of Bombay expression was released as an extension of the flagship gin, adding botanicals of Bergamot orange and Ambrette seed while increasing the bottling proof to a cocktail-crowd pleasing 95 proof. The bottle announces itself as London dry gin but the botanical set reminds us of a more modern, citrus and floral profile outside of the classic ingredients, so we have dared...
Blackwater Wexford strawberry gin - 50cl€34,00
Blackwater Wexford Strawberry Gin begins life as their No. 5 Gin, which is a traditional London dry style featuring the heavy juniper flavors that are iconic to the Martini enthusiast and gin purists in general. They add a 13th botanical, strawberry, and then macerate (soak) more strawberries in the spirit following. This gives the gin a light, rose color and flavor. We qualify it as a flavored gin for this reason, though the berry could be considered a botanical. Blackwater Distillery was founded in 2015 by Peter Mulryan in the West Waterford area of Ireland, which they regard as premium...

Blended with demineralized spring water down to a light 80 proof relative to the more traditional gins, it includes botanicals such as chamomile, pomelo, and honeysuckle, which might lead it to a more modern classification but we have adopted the traditional dry label in deference to their own declaration.
