The East London Liquor Company’s first batch Premium Gin is based on British wheat neutral spirit infused and redistilled in a copper Holstein still with juniper berries, coriander seeds, cassia bark, angelica root, pink grapefruit, cubeb berries and Darjeeling tea.
Sampled on 13/11/2014
Angelica root leads with nutty balsawood. Juniper takes a back seat with mild pine and overripe banana. Darjeeling tea is very evident and pleasing (at least to an Englishman) with fresh fragrant coriander scents. Water reveals cubeb berry peppery spice.
A blast of cubeb berry peppery spice overpowers angelica, piney juniper and the Darjeeling. Water has the opposite effect to the nose, rescuing some of lost angelica and Darjeeling.
Red and black peppercorn spice continues to dominate. Overall: A superbly clean and cleansing gin with underlying nutty balsawood and Darjeeling tea enlivened by upfront peppery spice.
