Gordon’s gin is triple-distilled and contains juniper berries, coriander seeds, angelica root, licorice, orris root, orange, and lemon peel, though the exact recipe has remained a closely guarded secret since 1769. It differed from others at the time in that it didn’t add sugar, which made it a “dry” gin. It takes ten days’ distillation after receiving the wheat to create a finished product of a bottle of Gordon’s Gin.
Tasting note: The sweet orange peel and juniper are first to stand out on the nose with coriander following soon after. The body of the gin is neither too rich or too thin with just a touch of oil. The finish is clean and crisp and the botanicals really work in harmony with the sweet notes matching up to the earthy, savory notes. While perhaps the finish could be a bit longer, this is nonetheless a classic gin, and would be perfectly fine in a martini.
