No. 209 Barrel Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Gin
This product is currently sold out.
This is just fabulous. Cab Sauv and gin! As you can guess, this is right up our street. The sister to No.209's Sauvignon Blanc release, this barrel-aged gin was rested for six months in ex-Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, adding a reddish hue, oily texture and a sherry-like character to the taste.
The nose possesses toffee and caramel sweetness with hints of spice. The first sip is sweet and full with a hint of citrus, spice and subtle red wine notes. Mid-palate shows the only true remnants of gin with juniper, cardamom and rose-like coriander resting in the background. The finish is quite long, sweet and surprisingly spice-filled with cassia, clove, ginger and black pepper. At the very end there are chocolate and oak notes.
