Adnams Brewery Tasting Notes

Posted: June 13, 2015 in English Gin, Gin

Adnams First rate Gin 48%

Tasted: Oct 2014

Nose: Pungent and slightly soapy with juniper, liquorice and bitter spice. Very complex with a touch of coriander and cassia bark coming through. With time some floral orange/ tangerine appears along with the earthy spirit character.

Palate: Soft and very vanilla’d. The botanicals are surprisingly subtle as the spirit character dominates. Again a little soapy with juniper, coriander, citrus and bittering spices.

Finish: Long with the juniper finally coming through. Alcohol dries.

Conclusion: A little over alcoholic and the palate didn’t live up to the promise of the nose.

Adnams Copperhouse Distilled Gin 40%

Tasted: Oct 2014

Nose: Quite soapy with juniper, lime, lemon, pepper, mint and camomile(?). With time the aromas become slightly earthy.

Palate: Soft with a slight vanilla character. Simple with a soapy citrus note and a touch of juniper and camomile(?).

Finish: Good finish with the peppery spices coming through.

Conclusion: I loved the earthy character but I didn’t love the soapiness.
