A Spanish gin made using 12 botanicals which are distilled five times. Larios 12 is made with botanicals including wild juniper, nutmeg, angelica root, coriander, Mediterranean lemon, orange, tangerine, mandarin, clementine, grapefruit, lime and orange blossom. Wait a minute… One, two, three… There’s 12 of them! Just like in the name! What a coincidence! This is a citrus-heavy gin, so go in expecting big helpings of lemon and orange notes. Ought to do very well in mixed drinks, and any cocktails that really love citrusy deliciousness – perhaps a Gimlet…?
Tasting note: Nose: Tangy, aromatic nose with huge citrus notes. Fresh flowers and herbs too. Palate: Herbal and very spicy with an abundance of citrus zest in all forms, as well as blossom, potpourri and cardamom. Finish: Coriander, juniper, and a final flourish of fresh citrus.
