Christmas Gin Sam Coyne Tastings

Cotswolds Distillery – Ginger Gin

Festive Tasting: No.1 

In the lead up to Christmas, we’re on the hunt for the perfect festive tipple – what better way to find out than with a series of online tastings.

The first in the series is from the Cotswolds Distillery, called Ginger Gin and has an ABV of 46%. See what we thought below:

Taster: Sam Coyne

Nose: A piney, juniper-forward nose, with gentle honey and barley lingering in the wings. The ginger nose is faint but draws out a little more spice, balancing sweet, floral and spice perfectly.

Palate: Wonderfully warming. A really smooth honey note comes first, with a syrupy texture reminiscent of throat-sweets. Ginger tea comes through. Then juniper rushes over, bringing a herbal, piney flavour. A coating mouthfeel that leaves a very satisfying impression.

Finish: A final flourish of honey flavoured throat sweets. Warming.

Comments: The ginger note is handled excellently, more of a finishing touch than an overwhelming element. Excellent balance of spice and sweetness. Can’t wait to try this in either a hot cocktail or a negroni.

Keep an eye out for this gin in one of our cocktails recipes, coming soon.
