Bath Tub Gin from Aberforth's Bathtub

What an extraordinary award-winning gin from Ableforth's this is! The brown paper and wax packaging isn't the only thing unique about this gin as Bath Tub Gin is the only gin made using the traditional method of Cold Compounding (or in layman’s terms – infusing). The grain based spirit is infused with ingredients including Juniper, Orange Peel, Coriander, Cinnamon, Cloves and Cardamom. This gin is made in ultra-small batches, and the length of the compounding period is controlled entirely by periodic sampling. The result is an extraordinary gin. Pour a shot of this gin and you'll quickly notice the Juniper-rich bouquet and rich grain spirit, but there is also a backdrop of Cardamom and Orange blossom with just a hint of Cinnamon. The taste is superb. The initial focus is Juniper, but the earthier botanicals make themselves known before too long. We really liked the consistency of this gin as it doesn't have the oiliness of other craft gins, it's more creamy. The finish is where the magic happens in this gin though. The juniper heavy initial taste subsides and gives way to the Cardamom and Cinnamon, with a late resurgence from Orange Peel. A most unusual, but quite entrancing Gin. To our knowledge this is the only cold-compounded gin currently available and it's probably how they keep collecting those awards!
