“To balance the bitterness of the aromatic plants, we choose the sweetness of oranges from southern Spain rather than those from Seville, which are more frank. We are also one of the few distilleries to use a hint of cardamom for its full-bodied, sweet, spicy and floral scents. ” Sean Harrison, Master Distiller of Plymouth Gin since 1994. Made from a selection of 7 fruits and aromatic plants (juniper, lemon and orange zest, iris and angelica roots, cardamom pod and coriander seeds) , Plymouth Gin gets its rich and creamy scent from its flavors revealed by the unique copper still and fresh water from Devon (Dartmoor National Park).
Nose: Rich and fresh aromas of juniper, followed by notes of coriander and cardamom.
Palate: Soft and creamy, both complex and finely sweet.
Overall: Long, elegant, fresh and finely scented.
Plymouth Gin Original is drunk neat, on ice or in cocktails. The sweet yet complex palate of Plymouth Gin has earned it recognition by bartenders around the world as THE Gin reference for the first recipe for the “Dry Martini” cocktail. (Savoy Cocktail Book, 1896)
