Gentle Saffron Gin
is the first offering from the team from Berlin, Marcus, Stan and Burray. They came to the conclusion a couple of years ago that there were alot of gins, but very few gins that were so smooth that they could be sipped over ice. They liked the simplicity, but quality of this approach.
They have certainly done managed to pull it off. All of their gins start their journey with a double distillation of the grain spirit, then the spirit is triple filtered. This attention to detail ensures very smooth gins.
You can see it is saffron infused by the colour, which comes alive in the striking medicine type bottle.
This saffron infused gin has a slightly smokey aroma with floral notes.
The taste is smooth, with a slight sweetness of the saffron, some earthy character and hints of citrus and spices. It has a subtle dryness from the juniper that holds it together.
The boys advocate a little tonic if you must, with no garnish. Over ice is their favourite.
Sipping gins are coming!
