.We launch our Cask Aged Gin this week.
The entire process was managed with care and precision by Corentin Simon who has been with us for over a year now. Corentin has a background in the wine and spirits industries. He is passionate about maturation in our unique moist, humid and Atlantic environment. Unusually for a Cask Gin this is a blended gin, combining Oak and Acacia casks, new and unused. This brings out a greater array of complex flavors and will also help us to maintain consistency in the years to come.
Our Cask Gin comes from painstaking research, careful monitoring and ex
treme care in cask selection. We appreciate the advice of Baudouin de Montgolfier of TSO Tonnilleries, a foremost expert in Acacia casks. While we are pleased with the performance of all our casks, one did particularly well. This comes from Domaine ROUTIER vinegar in the South of France and carries its white grape flavor into every blend.
A classic warm winter juniper gin aged in a selection of casks that has notes of candied peel, baked fruits, red berries, and buttery cinnamon.
The gin has a gentle warm honey flavour which gives way to clove allspice nutmeg. This is while it retains much of the pine juniper dryness coming through. It rests a good length on the palate.
3 SQ MILES Aged Gin in presented in a simple bottle that underlines its rich colour, texture, and warm flavors. We have opted for simplicity to keep the price as accessible as possible. Comes at a RRP of €52.
