Quite simply G'Vine Nouaison gin with sweet vermouth and Fernet Branca which has benefitted from eight weeks aging in new French oak barrels. Supplies are very, very limited - we note on the label of this bottle that it is number 16 of 18 bottles.
We first came across this very special version of the classic Hanky Panky cocktail at a G'Vine-sponsored seminar at the 2011 Manhattan Cocktail Classic and this sample is courtesy of Eurowinegate's own Audrey Fort.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 16/06/2011

Appearance:

(bottle No. 16 of 18) Clear, mahogany brown with saffron yellow tinge.

Aroma:

Wonderfully appealing complex nose with woody spice, cinnamon, cloves, angelica, juniper, sloes, lemon zest and cigar tobacco aromas.

Taste:

Minty menthol notes jump out the multifaceted, well-structured palate and enormous body.

Aftertaste:

Minty, liquorice finish with cacao notes. All this needs is an orange zest twist.
