Both Stone’s Original and Stone’s Reserve are made from the same raw materials. The final blend consists of a combination of gingered and ungingered raisin bases. Essentially Stone’s Reserve is a more concentrated version of the Original and is higher in alcohol, sweetness and acidity. Reserve is spicier than Stone's Original due to containing double the amount of ginger.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 21/04/2013
Clear, mahogany amber with coppery highlights.
Candied ginger and vermouth with Christmassy spice.
Initially sweet and slightly syrupy before fiery ginger root spice emerges and dominates with dried fruit and vermouth-like complexity.
Long, powerfully spicy honeyed ginger finish.
