In these times of uncertainty, especially regarding the UK and its place in Europe, a friendly American distillery has produced a gin to calm the nerves and show the way. This Brexit Gin was created by Paul Hletko of FEW Spirits in Illinois. There is botanical democracy and the angelica, lemon, orange, and orris of classic gin recipes have been voted out, leaving behind juniper, coriander seed, lime, and fennel. The result is a boldly flavoured gin, great for Martinis and mixing – a definite limey treat.
Nose: A burst of lime flower with a light sweetness.
Taste: An exceptionally thick and luxurious texture, with the creaminess of lime gelato and a light, sweet herbal note.
Finish: A zesty finish of spicy coriander.
