Time travelling gin – what next? Let That Boutique-y Gin Company transport you back in time, through the medium of gin, to 11th Century Ireland and a monastic garden. At this time, distilling had just arrived and numerous herbs and plants were grown. There’s no citrus or Far Eastern spices in this gin; instead, quince, rosehip, and bletted medlars join classic gin botanicals such as juniper.
Nose: An aromatic mix of crisp juniper and ripe quince, followed by a light florality.
Taste: An elegant spirit with floral notes that evoke memories of a garden in spring.
Finish: Earthy with lingering juniper and light hints of violets.
Overall: A charming and well-integrated spirit that takes you back to another age.
