Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - (Tried & True Award)- Vibrant and fresh with scents of red grapefruit and pine needles with juniper in support. Generous on the palate while deftly dry with bright acidity and lingering citrus, dry cooking spice, and pine notes. (Mar 2015)
No.3 was created to be the last word in gin for a Dry Martini. ’A Taste of Tradition’: With juniper at its heart, it unashamedly celebrates the integrity and character of traditional London Dry Gin: three fruits and three spices distilled in traditional copper pot stills.
Juniper, from Italy, not only gives gin its name, but also the unmistakable gin taste of pine and lavender. Sweet Spanish orange peel provides freshness in the form of clean, crisp citrus. Grapefruit peel gives an extra zingy lift.
Angelica root delivers an earthy quality and helps to make the gin dry. Moroccan coriander seed releases a lemon flavour and a spicy, slightly peppery finish. And finally, cardamom pods which add a spicy, aromatic, yet warm bite.
