Masham Rhubarb Gin (Episode 185 Part 4)

In the last part of this episode, we taste the Masham Rhubarb Gin.

 

The main ingredient of this gin is, of course, Rhubarb, but it also has some Rose and Ginger botanicals included which sound s like a great combination.

The colour was very vibrant, almost luminous!

This Gin is 42% ABV unlike some of the flavoured gins where the ABV can be as low 20%.

John L thought the gin smelt like stewed rhubarb prepared for Rhubarb pie and he could also just detect the ginger too.

The taste was terrific coming in several waves of full-on Rhubarb, then Rose and then the ginger taste comes through.

When drunk neat there is absolutely no alcohol bite.

For both us, when we added the tonic, it made the drink just too sweet for our taste, making this a drink that we would prefer neat.

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.
