Silent Pool | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 43º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals 24 in total, but not all revealed. Licorice, Angélica, Anise, Bergamot, Camomile, Cassia, a mixture of Citruses, Lavander, Lily Root, Kaffir Lime leaves, Honey, Dried Pear, Cubeba Pepper, Rose Petals, Elderflower, Tilia and Juniper.

Brief Description
Silent Pool, the natural swimming pool and the distillery are both found in the small village of Albury in Surrey. Ian McCulloch, the founder of the company, found in the natural beauty of Silent Pool the perfect place to set up his distillery and, more importantly, find the inspiration for the spirits he distils there. The Gin Silent Pool can therefore be described with the words which also characterize the water of Silent Pool, the lake – limpid, pure and refreshing. Silent Pool allies the almost orthodox ancestral methods of distillation with new techniques of flavouring the spirit base, paying extreme attention to the smallest details. The production of steam for heating the still by burning wood grown nearby, ending up in a chimney with a whistle is just one of those details.
The botanicals, 24 in total, are incorporated in the spirit base in 3 distinct stages. A first portion is macerated in the alcohol base to confer a long and deep flavour to the Gin. A second portion is macerated in a higher strength neutral alcohol which is then filtered. This way the oils in which the aromatic components are found can be retained. The final portion, in which not all 24 botanicals are present, is added to the still inside an aroma basket. All the botanicals in there are fresh, not dried, and are responsible to for the life and freshness of Silent Pool.
The abundance of botanicals is obvious on first contact. Its aroma meanders between floral and fruity, citric and the gentle touch of honey and the ever present juniper, which give room to each other in a pleasing harmony. Citrus fruits, such as the fresh tasting lime, the common lime and the Kaffir lime, combine with the gentler bergamot. The floral touch of camomile, elderflower and lavender round out the palate and guarantee the extreme smoothness of this Gin. The presence of pear strongly punctuates the Gin along with the spices such as star anise and cassia, and the sweetness of the honey.

Tanqueray Dry | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 43.1º (also bottled as 40º and 47.3º)
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Liquorice, Angelica, Coriander seed and Juniper.

Brief Description
The legend of Tanqueray Dry Gin has its beginnings in 1838. It was in that year, 8 years after the distillery was founded, that Charles Tanqueray created one of the most iconic Gins in the world. At the time, he was 20 years old with little experience in the art of distillation, but that didn’t stop him creating a recipe which is still used for the production of Tanqueray Dry Gin.
Liquorice, Angelica, Coriander seeds and Juniper are all used. Just as with everything, the secret is in the details. In Cameronbridge, Scotland, where the distillery moved after its buildings in Bloomsbury were bombed in the second world war, the botanicals are placed in the still without any previous maceration. The spirit obtained from that is then reduced to 43.1º.
Tanqueray Dry Gin IS Juniper. It is Juniper that takes over the whole of the bouquet of aromas liberated when we open the bottle, but there is a light citrus note which proves once again the masterful use of Coriander seeds in a Gin that uses no actual citrus fruit.
In the mouth, it is also Juniper that appears first, with a quite dry taste which then opens out and gives way to the comforting spiciness and sweetness of the angelica and liquorice.

Tanqueray Rangpur | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 41.3º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Angelica, Coriander seed, Ginger, Rangpur Limes, Bay leaf and Juniper.

Brief description
Tanqueray Rangpur is the freshest of all of the Tanqueray range and owes its name to the Rangpur Limes, a curious fruit whose name varies depending on where it is being mentioned and which isn’t actually a lime, but a hybrid of lemon and tangerine, similar to Bergamot.
Tanqueray Rangpur was imagined and created to be served as part of a Gin & Tonic. This was in 2006 when this was the first Tanqueray Gin to relegate Juniper to second place, seeking instead to bring a freshness and acid touch of citrus fruits to the table. However, the two join together in a smooth and harmonious way which further counts on the more exotic and herbal flavour of Ginger and Bay leaf.
Since it was created specifically for Gin & Tonic, the alcohol level of Tanqueray Rangpur is lower than other Tanqueray Gins, being diluted to 41.3 volumes.
On the nose, Tanqueray Rangpur brings the fresh aromas of lemon and lime to the fore. Only after the citrus do we find the Juniper, only slightly evident when compared to the other Tanquerays. In the end, the sweetness and roundness of this gin are in effect. In the mouth, they continue to contain the citrus in a simple and direct palate.

Plymouth Navy Strength | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 57º
Type Plymouth Gin
Known Botanicals Angelica, Cardamom, Coriander seed, Orange, Lemon, Lily root and Juniper.

Brief Description
“For about 200 years, the British Navy and Plymouth Navy Strength were inseparable. No ship left port without a bottle aboard.”
In fact, the Gin was transported in barrels in the hold, alongside the gunpowder. The strength of Plymouth Navy Strength was “thought” that even if the gin came into contact with the gunpowder, the latter wouldn’t lose its ability to explode, something that had happened in the Original version with 41.2º alcohol.
Plymouth Gin was born in 1793 in the city which gave it its name and ever since then, produced ever since in the Plymouth Gin Distillery, what was the Black Friars Distillery, situated next to the port, making it the oldest distillery in England still in production.
The distillery took the place of a monastery, which is why on every bottle there is always a monk engraved on the glass, and on the label the Mayflower.
On the nose and on the palate, Plymouth Navy Strength is everything a Gin should be. On the nose, it is pungent with Juniper to the fore, supported by the citrus note of the coriander seeds and the perfume of cardamom. In the mouth it is rich and omnipresent. It is surprisingly smooth, considering its alcohol grade.

Plymouth Sloe | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 26º
Type Sloe Gin
Known Botanicals Angelica, Cardamom, Coriander seed, Orange, Lemon, Lily root and Juniper.

Brief Description
The tradition of making Sloe Gin is centuries old in England. Thus, the centuries old, traditional Plymouth based company -  it must never be forgotten that Plymouth Gin Distillery is the oldest distillery in England still in production in its original home – had to present its latest Gin based liqueur. Resorted to the recipe date back to 1883, Plymouth respects its ancestral methods of production of Sloe Gin, adding Sloe berries to its Gin and sugar to facilitate the extraction of flavour from the previously macerated fruit. Sloes belong to the plum family, described as similar to the damson but more bitter.
Sloe Gins are naturally smoother than Gin because of the fruit and, of course, the sugar. When we open a bottle of Plymouth Sloe we immediately notice the fruity touch of this Gin, with plum appearing first, closely followed by a touch of almond. Something we don’t notice is the alcohol, due to its lower alcohol grade of 26º, and due to the sugars extracted from the fruit. In the mouth, Plymouth Sloe remains smooth and fruity even though it is well structured and has a drier taste than other Sloe Gins.
