Reduced pressure (vacuum) distiller Ian Hart worked with the art gallery’s own cocktail aficionado, Alex Stevenson, to produce this special edition Tate London Dry Gin. This has a high proportion of cardamom, angelica and liquorice. Each batch is limited to just 250 individually numbered bottles.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 24/02/2013
(batch a, bottle No. 137 of 250) Crystal clear.
Pungent freshly crushed cardamom seeds dominate delicate nutty damp wood and eucalyptus.
Fabulously crisp, clean and fresh with more cardamom, black pepper spice and eucalyptus/pine juniper fighting for attention.
Palate cleansing fresh breath finish with lingering cardamom, black pepper and juniper. This may technically be a ‘London Dry Gin’ but its flavour profile is far from what the term classically suggests.
