Product of: United Kingdom
Loyal drinkers were relieved when yet another radically different but this time 'old-fashioned' rounded-shouldered bottle emerged in January 2012 (released January 2013 in UK). This prominently returned the square-rigged Mayflower to the front label with the monk now white sticker on the back of the bottle so visible through the bottle as a ghost-like image to the bottom right of the oval label, inverted horseshoe-like label. With this packaging change came a repositioning in the gin's price as a super-premium.
Review and Tasting

Juniper notes of pine, lavender and camphor with lemon zest, sage and eucalyptus.
Fresh zingy piney juniper with zesty lemony bite and orange ripeness; character and interest are enhanced by more subtle rooty notes with fresh coriander and mild white pepper spice.
Refreshing pine freshness lingers with subtle white pepper and liquorice-like rootyness.
Classic London dry in style with zesty lemony bite and orange ripeness. Well-balanced and reliably consistent. One of the oldest and best gin names.
