St George Botanivore Gin 750ml
St George Spirits was founded in 1982 and has grown from a dedicated Eau De Vie distillery into a diverse operation that makes a great range of craft spirits. The team of Jörg Rupf, Lance Winters and Dave Smith have helped propel the distillery into the frontline of the gin world, making a line of gins that is as well-respected as it is imaginative: the Dry Rye which wears the Rye base on its sleeve, the legendary Faultline Gin and their “it tastes like Redwood trees, but in a good way” Terroir Gin. But their Botanivore might be their most traditional offering,
Botanivore, St George's “botanical eater,” has 19 botanicals working in harmony: angelica root, bay laurel, bergamot peel, black peppercorn, caraway, cardamom, cilantro, cinnamon, citra hops, coriander, dill seed, fennel seed, ginger, juniper berries, lemon peel, lime peel, orris root, Seville orange peel, star anise!
Spicy with fennel, cardamom and orange peels shining through, but sweetness coming from the cinnamon and orange peel balances it out on the nose. Earthy spices, crystallised ginger and caraway on the palate. Cool and refreshing finish.
This is an elegant, perfectly balanced, herbaceous and deeply layered gin that is very approachable and makes a fine Gin Martini!
