Gin Lovers Gin | Portugal

National Gin & Tonic Day is on its fifth edition. Gin Lovers Gin its third.
After a Gin which we adapted followed by a Gin thought up and created from scratch, here is our 2017 Edition, a 100% Gin Lovers production.
The directive was simple: make a Gin that is agreeable to the greatest number of people possible. Juniper and Citrus for the purists and traditionalists, but smooth and fruity enough to convince those less accustomed to the bitter sip of this our favourite spirit.
This edition was thought up from scratch but always had as its base the knowledge and opinions we have gathered from the previous versions.  Straight away we reduced the degree of botanicals to make a cleaner and more direct flavour. There are now 32 botanicals used in Gin Lovers Gin, reducing the floral and herbal elements to allow the citrus ones to shine through. Rose petals, Globe Amaranth, Iceland Moss (a lichen) and Breckland Thyme, among others, were left out of the production of Gin Lovers 2017.
We also altered the balance of the power players. Juniper still occupies central stage but it is now accompanied by lemon verbena, pine sprigs and a mixture of citrus fruits, still leaving space for the warmer spices like cinnamon, cassia bark and nutmeg.
Changing a product, especially a Gin, is a complicated step by step process where the whole is always different from the sum of its parts. We wanted a Gin which inherited some of the complex aromas of Xmas Edition 2016 but on the other hand had a more defined matrix with strong vertexes of juniper, pine sprigs, lemon verbena and the citrus fruits.
The alcohol level has also been lowered with the idea of increasing the lightness of the Gin without compromising the depth of aromas. It is now 41% vol.
This decrease in alcohol level goes with the decrease in complexity. In other words, the 2016 versions demanded a higher level of alcohol to carry all of its aromas. The simplification of the botanical palette and almost the entire elimination of floral and herbal elements permits a decrease in alcohol.
Gin Lovers 2017 is therefore a Gin which sits somewhere between classic London Drys and deeper aroma Gins. On tasting, expect the juniper to be refreshed by the pine sprigs and the lemon verbena, followed by the mix of citrus fruits where the orange crosses with the vivacity of bergamot and a warm finish punctuated by warm spices.
We are producing 500 bottles, as in previous editions, whose sale will be limited to our online store, Gin Lovers Príncipe Real and El Corte Inglés supermarkets.

Beefeater 24 | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 45º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Liquorice, almond, root and angelica seed, Chinese green tea, Sencha Japanese tea, coriander seed, iris root, orange, lemon and grapefruit peel and juniper.

Brief Description
Brits like tea. Brits like Gin. Gin with tea? Of course. We do not know if this was the reason behind the creation of Beefeater 24 but the results speak for themselves. By adding grapefruit, Chinese green tea and Japanese sencha tea to the original Beefeater recipe, Desmond Payne created their London Dry. The Beefeater 24 is fresher, softer and more floral than the Beefeater Dry. But it is the scent of flowers that we feel when we open the bottle. The juniper notes are less noticed. On the palate, we are surprised by the softness, the elegant and citrus presence of grapefruit and an astringency in the end, signed by green tea.

Nº3 London | England

Origin England (Production is in the Netherlands today)
Alcoholic Volume 46º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Angelica root, cardamom, coriander seed, orange and grapefruit peel and juniper.

Brief Description
The Nº3 London Dry Gin shows us that simplicity can be a synonym of high quality. With only 6 botanicals divided by 3 fruits and 3 earthen elements it can have a perfect complexity and balance.
Was created in 2010 by Berry Brothers & Rudd - a flagship wine and spirits store with more than three centuries - located in No. 3 St. James Street, in the heart of London. The production is located in the Netherlands, where the company has found a contemporary distillery shop - De Kuyper Royal Distillers.
Its image is a key which appears in front of the bottle and was inspired by the one that opens The Parlour (a store division) and symbolizes the family legacy.
On the nose and palate, the No. 3 honors the tradition of a London Dry: dry and citric with clear notes of juniper combined with the elegance of grapefruit and orange.

Blackwoods 60º | Scotland

Origin Scotland
Alcoholic Volume 60º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Liquorice, angelica root, cinnamon, citrus peel, coriander seed, mountain daisy, nutmeg, sea rose, meadowsweet and juniper.

Brief Description
It is from the beautiful landscape of the Shetland islands, North of Scotland, that the Blackwood's comes from. Using the local flora, this Gin carries all the richness and cultural heritage of the region. The recipe has a Nordic origin, and reflects the previous Viking domain. The main botanicals, such as angelica, rose from the sea, meadowsweet and marigold are locally sourced. You should expect a citric and herbal London Dry brought by the Shetland botanicals. The close connection between the Blackwood's and the environment that surrounds it makes it a tribute to the year in which they are produced, hence it is Vintage gin.

Brief Description
The Bulldog Gin was released in 2007. It was a converted banker to gin producer dream.

It has a very rich bouquet where citrus and coriander seeds occupy a prominent place. It is extremely smooth with a dry character, where the juniper stands.
Despite the eccentricity of the Bulldog botanicals, dragon eye, lotus or white poppy leaf, it is extremely mixable in a cocktail and versatile in a gin and tonic, offering almost endless possibilities of creating new aromatizations.

Citadelle | France

Origin France
Alcoholic Volume 44º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Liquorice, almond, root and angelica seed, cinnamon, cardamom, cassia, coriander seed, cumin, anise star, fennel, grains of paradise, orange and lemon peels, iris root, nutmeg, cubeba pepper, satureja, verbena and juniper.

Brief Description
The Citadelle Gin is produced in the Southwestern region of France, the land of Cognac. Alexandre Gabriel, Citadelle's master-distiller, used an old Geneviere recipe which he found in the city of Dunkirk, dating back to the eighteenth century. In addition, he added the tradition of Pierre Ferrand and started the production of Citadelle in small stills of copper heated with direct flame and without steam (naked flame) - like Cognac is made. This type of heating is noted when we taste it. It's rounder and smoother than most Gins as a result of the botanicals caramelization inside the still. Produced using the 19 botanicals, the Citadelle offers spicy notes of cinnamon, anise and nutmeg but also a jasmine perfume.
