Distilled Dry Gin

Cumberland Saucy Gin (Episode 182)

We taste the Cumberland Saucy Gin.

The gin is a full-on gin which bites back with alcohol burn even though on the nose there was no suggestion of how strong it would taste.

However, after a few sips, the effect dies down enabling you to enjoy the taste more.

Although the gin has a very sweet smell that doesn’t come through when tasting.

We both enjoyed the gin more when the tonic was added, which seemed to allow the taste of the orange peel to shine through.

Bottega Bacur Gin Review (Episode 137)

An Italian London Dry Gin, it smelt a little like Grappa to John L, which John M thought was due to the alcohol coming through, Otherwise not much could be gained from the nose.
Drank neat the taste was quite a way from a “typical” London Dry Gin. Neat it was one of those tastes that would polarise people into either liking it or not!
With the tonic added the nose was certainly improved and so was the taste, There is a sweet sherbert flavour to the gin which the tonic brought out.
It has a great taste but will not be to every typical gin drinkers taste.
