It was 1762 when Edward Boodle founded Boodle’s Gentlemen’s Club in St James Street, London. Almost a century later, in 1845, the recipe for Boodles Gin was born, a recipe still used today, the favourite Gin of Winston Churchill. Pure English wheat used for the production of the neutral alcohol and no citrus in the palette of botanicals are the stand out features of this classic.
Boodles was imagined as a blank canvas upon which each artist could express their own essence, with an alcohol base which permits anyone to put their taste, without any conditions by the creator’s vision. It’s because of this, and because they always imagine Gin served with lime or lemon, that the creators of Boodles opted to not put any citrus in the Gin itself. Boodles is a London Dry Gin with gentle herb and spice notes. Looking at the list of botanicals they use, there is an impressive number of warm flavoured spices, such as the carraway and the nutmeg. Also the herbs used, rosemary and sage, contribute to a greater warmth and roundness of this Gin.
On the nose, the caraway is noticeable first. It is gentler than the coriander seeds, and the aniseed brings warmth to the bouquet. Then the nutmeg and cassia appear, mixed together with the coherent touch of the herbs. In the mouth, confirmation that everything in the aroma is true, and where the smoothness of the alcohol is even more evident.
