The recipe used to make Stones is said to date from 1740 while the brand name dates from the mid-nineteenth century, when the wine was sold by Joseph Stone, a London grocer. Stone asked the Finsbury Distilling Company to make a ginger wine under his name.
Stone used the crest of the City of London on his label, perhaps to add sophistication, or possibly because his brother in law was the Lord Mayor of London.

Stone’s is made from a combination of gingered and ungingered raisin bases.

Αξιολόγηση


Η γευσιγνωσία έγινε στις 07/07/2012

Όψη:

Clear golden with a hint of apricot orange.

Μύτη:

Vermouth-like oxidised wine with subtle candied ginger.

Στόμα:

Slightly sweet with pronounced fiery ginger root - much more powerful than the nose suggests. Subtle notes of green apple skin/cider while the sweetness appears honey-like rather than plain sugar.

Επίγευση:

Long fiery honeyed root ginger.
