Bathtub Gin, 70 cl


SKU: B00G3Z92CI Category:


Bathtub gin is a uniquely characterful gin, full of fresh botanical flavours that stand proud in any mixed drink. The secret? Double infusion. First, to prepare the gin distillation of an already delicious London dry gin is done in a traditional copper-pot still. Whilst most gins finish there, take the extra step of infusing an additional six botanicals into the gin over the course of seven days. This crucial process, inspired by the ‘bathtub gins’ of old, (hence the name) adds extra layers of flavour and freshness as well as a touch of colour to the resulting gin. Finally, in homage to the historical methods that inspired Bathtub gin, every bottle is wrapped, strung and waxed by hand in kent. The quality of Bathtub gin is consistently recognised by experts and the liquid has won over 30 industry awards in the last 5 years. Bathtub gin is best enjoyed with premium tonic with plenty of ice, an orange slice and somebody nice! Bathtub gin & tonic: 50ml of Bathtub gin, topped with premium tonic water in an ice-filled glass. Garnish with an orange slice. The robust botanical flavour also works well in a wide range of mixed drinks and stands proud particularly well in a Negroni Negroni: 25ml of Bathtub gin, 25ml sweet vermouth, 25ml Campari. Stir over ice and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass and garnish with orange zest. Tasting Notes: nose: fresh and bold juniper leads the way with fragrant citrus and cardamom. Notes of fresh orange peel and cinnamon add to an enticing nose. Palate: Juniper again leads, as it should in any gin, but there’s plenty more besides. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy whilst the cloves, coriander and cardamom offer depth. Finish: here the supporting botanicals really shine with lingering cardamom and orange peel on the tail. History: Bathtub gin from Ableforth’s was born from the founders’ search for a fresher, bolder gin. After finding that nothing quite delivered the vibrant flavour they were searching for, they decided to hand-craft their own. They turned to the history books for inspiration and discovered a historical technique for gin making that though wonderfully effective at flavouring gin, had fallen out of practice. Brimming with inspiration they set about marrying this approach with the best modern gin-making methods. The result is a multi award winning, uniquely characterful gin, full of fresh botanical flavours that stand proud in any mixed drink.
