Plymouth Original Gin England Rated 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

Clear. Light juniper nose. Medium body. Substantial juniper hit upfront that carries through to a lean citrus peel and quinine character. Finishes with a hefty wave of spicy heat. A substantial gin that would be great in a gin and tonic.(tastings.com) Voted Best Gin, BBC Good Food Magazine 2002 Double Gold Winner, San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2001 Best White Spirit, International Wine & Spirit Competition 2000 Tasting note A great depth of flavour, with a wonderfully fresh juniper, lemony bite with deeper earthy notes. It has a slight sweetness with extraordinary concentration and complexity. No single botanical dominates the overall flavour. What they say... "It's that smell. It is fabulous. It's got a really lovely junipery quality. But you can also actually feel the other rooty, earthy sort of flavourings in there. And when you come to taste it, it's soft, it's quite a strong spirit,...but it's round and it doesn't attack you at all. It's a very nice gin indeed. Good with tonic I'd say."

A good solid, neutral gin, without too much of any particular botanical or citrus. I like it, among other purposes, for a drink I call the Stiles (4 parts Plymouth, 1 part Lillet blanc, 1 part St. Germain liqueur). Irrelevant anecdote: the excellent Eastern Standard restaurant and bar in Boston refers to this as "the Spirit of Plymouth" on their menus.

The body is medium, and initially fairly fruity, the intensely dry juniper character soon comes into play.

A great depth of flavour, with a wonderfully fresh juniper, lemony bite with deeper earthy notes. It has a slight sweetness with extraordinary concentration and complexity. No single botanical dominates the overall flavour. The finish is long and dry.
