Shropshire Gin Company Tasting Notes

Posted: February 27, 2017 in English Gin, Gin, White Spirits

Tiger Gin 40%

Distilled by the Shropshire Gin Company, using Balkan juniper, Eastern European coriander, French/ Belgian angelic root, Spanish lemon peel, Chinese cassia bark, Mediterranean liquorice root, West Indian ground nutmeg. Madagascan cinnamon bark, Italian orris root powder and 2 other ‘secret ingredients’

Tasted: Jan 2017

The nose opens with dusty nutmeg, warm cassia and cinnamon. The subtle but fresh spirit character and citrus cuts through along with hints of juniper and floral orris.

The palate is fresh and crisp but full bodied with juniper, warming spice and subtly bitter barky spice. Good lemon character on the middle. Lovely intensity and depth with the citrus lingering along with a touch of liquorice root, angelica and coriander.
