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.

Gin Lovers 2017 Specifications

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.

G'Vine Florasion | France

Origin France
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Ugni Blanc vine leaf grape, liquorice, cardamom, cassia, coriander seed, ginger, lime peel, nutmeg, Cubeba pepper and juniper.

Brief Description
Like its Nouaison brother, the G'Vine Floraison uses the Ugni Blanc grape as its alcohol base. This grape is especially adapted to the distillation process because of its high acidity - this is the immediate difference between G'Vine and the remaining Gins that use a cereal alcohol base. 
G'Vine Floraison is an extremely soft Gin with a very rich bouquet of aromas dominated by the perfume and fresh flowers. In one hand, the neutral alcohol used in the base gives it an immediate and differentiator velvety feel. On the other, the vine flower used in the distillation gives it a fresher floral note. The end is dry and the notes of juniper are notorious as well as the slightly spicy taste of ginger.
The Floraison green version is fresher and lighter than its counterpart and seeks to capture the ephemeral and vibrant fragrance of the Ugni Blanc flower time of birth. On the other hand, the Nouaison captures the time between flower to grape, hence its strong and deep character.

Master's | Spain

Origin Spain
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Cardamom, coriander seed, bitter orange peel, sweet orange and lemon and juniper.

Brief Description
From Distillery MG - with centuries of distillation history - was born Master's Dry Gin. This is a traditional London Dry with some variations in the production process.
Master's is the result of three distillations. On the first, cardamom, coriander and juniper are distilled cold. On the second, there are three different macerations with citrus - sweet orange, bitter lemon and orange, which rest more than one year. The spirits obtained from the two first distillations are then combined and distilled one last time.
The Master's assumes itself as a gin where the botanicals appear immediately and the juniper comes in a secondary role.
On the nose, the alcohol is dominant ponctuated by the juniper and reminding pine. In the mouth, Master's is a direct Gin with little complexity and where the citrus shine. The end is sweet but slightly extended.

Martin Miller's | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Licorice, angelica root, cassia, coriander seed, iris root, cucumber and bitter orange, lemon and lime peels, juniper.

Brief Description
Sir Martin Miller was disappointed with the way the British national drink - Gin - was going. Therefore, he decided to produce his own version which became one of the most emblematic Drys on the market. He only needed time to tune the distillation process where most botanicals are separated from the citrus to better maintain their character and find the water to do justice to the spirit obtained. The water for dillution comes from Iceland where Sir Martin Miller thought he found the most pure and soft water on the planet. Martin Millers has a well pronounced juniper aroma, accompanied by citrus notes (fresher than in most Gins, as a result of the distillation method used) and a rich, spicy and lasting palate without losing its lightness and elegance. A Gin made with love, obsession and a dose of madness makes it elegant for a gin and tonic and its flavor will endure beyond other ingredients on a cocktail.

Gin Mare | Spain

Origin Spain
Alcoholic Volume 42,7º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals The 4 main ones: Rosemary, olive, basil and thyme. The remaining: cardamom, coriander Seed, citrus peel (orange and lemon) and juniper.

Brief Description
The sea is the source of inspiration for the Gin Mare as it is highlighted on the top of the bottle with the expression "Mediterranean Gin." The evidence is the liquid inside the blue translucent glass.
The four main botanicals are rosemary, olive, basil and thyme. The warm rosemary aroma, greasiness olives, fresh basil and thyme smoke, all evoke the scents of the Mediterranean.
The botanicals are macerated and distilled separately, with the exception of the citrus - sweet and bitter oranges and lemon. 
The first breath is naturally herbaceous with notes of rosemary and juniper. The freshness of the basil and the olive are also present in a surprising armony. In the mouth, it is the softness of the alcohol that stays, leased by the touch of olive. The rosemary, cardamom and juniper are also notorious giving it a herbal and salty taste.

Friday | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Cardamom, gaga grape vine leaf, orange blossom, tropical fruit and juniper.

Brief Description
Friday Chic Gin was born in the heart of the Bairrada region - North of Portugal - in a distillery with many years of experience in the production of the best sparkling made in Portugal.
The vine leaf from the Baga grape - variety found in this region - enters the distillation process adding an astringent touch to the Gin. Although unnoticeable is of utmost importance since it is the counterpoint to the sweetest aromas of orange blossom and tropical fruit.
The breathe feeling is extremely pleasant. The alcohol taste is very soft and the fragrant notes of ripe fruit and floral touch invite to a deeper inhalation. In the mouth, the softness, sweet and fruity touch of this Gin is confirmed. The juniper is less noticeable than in most Gins which makes Friday extremely soft.

Bulldog | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Liquorice, almond, angelica root, cassia, coriander seed, lavender, lotus leaf, lemon peel, iris root, dragon eye, white poppy and juniper.

Brief Description
The Bulldog Gin was released in 2007. It was a converted banker to gin producer dream. Thought in the United States and produced in England, the Bulldog proves the international vein of the creator and the Bulldog Gin itself which makes use of 12 botanicals coming from the four corners of the planet.
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.

Tanqueray Ten | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 47,3º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Licorice, angelica root, chamomile, coriander seed, whole lime and white grapefruit and juniper, among others.

Brief Description
Tanqueray Ten was only born at the beginning of this millennium. In 2000, Tanqueray Gordon & Co launched the Gin that soon became their image. The name comes from Tiny Tim - the alembic No. 10 where the heart of this citric Gin is distilled. Limes and white grapefruit - whole fruit and not just peel - are distilled in small stills. The obtained spirit is then transferred to a larger still where they are mixed with the other botanicals. Tanqueray Ten has a higher alcoholic volume and more juniper than its older brother. Nevertheless, it is an extremely mild Gin due to the fresh scent of citrus that comes on the first feel, nose or mouth. The 47.3 alcohol volume gives it a depth of flavor where there is space for the juniper and chamomile floral touch before returning again to the citrus which gives it a fresh characteristic in the end. The alcoholic volume and its depth of flavor makes it a mandatory addition to cocktails, particularly with Martinis.

Wild Snow Dog | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Almond, angelica root, cinnamon, cassia, coriander seed, kumquat, nutmeg, rose, lemon peel and juniper.

Brief Description
Serra da Estrela - the highest point in Portugal - is one of the few places where the juniper plant grows in its natural state. It is also the region where many liqueurs and spirits are produced. The combination between experience and source of wild juniper was the perfect setting for the development of a new Gin.
The primacy was naturally given to juniper but sweeter botanicals were added to the distillation in a more contemporary approach to Gin. Wild Snow Dog has spices such as cinnamon or cassia, the sweetness of the kumquat or the greasiness of the almond.
The result is a very pleasant Gin either on the nose or the mouth with the juniper coming first, soon followed by the warm touch of cinnamon and cassia and a citrus component less noted than in most London Dry.

Mui Gin | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Licorice, rosemary, toasted almonds, cinnamon, ginger, hibiscus, pennyroyal, Muscat raisin, orange and tangerine peel and juniper.

Brief Description
The Mui gin comes from an old Geneva recipe that was in possession of Chef's Helio Loureiro family since 1873.
The chef's creative vein made him bring some of the most expensive spices to the recipe, giving it a more contemporary feel, more aromatic.
Mui is produced using 7 distillations in search of a purer, smoother and pleasant alcohol. In addition, there is a varied palette of botanicals where we can find the Moscatel grape, sweet citrus, roasted almond, pennyroyal or hibiscus.
The Mui is rich and fruity with the juniper always present. The taste in the mouth is given by the fruit and spices with the velvety touch of raisins and toasted almonds.

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.

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.

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.

Seagram's | USA

Origin USA
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type New Western Gin
Known Botanicals Angelica root, cardamom, cassia, coriander seed, orange peel and juniper.

Brief Description
Seagram's was born in Canada but despite its origin, it is in the neighbour country where it is most important. The headquarters are in the United States. Its extraordinary price makes it a big competitor against pricier gins and a best seller in the US market. The secret lies in its method of production which includes distillation in vacuum at low temperatures and aging in oak. The result is an amber ton gin - the result of wood - which also contributes to its extreme softness. On the nose we can feel notes of vanilla and caramel. And when we sip it, it is the juniper that shines. However, it never loses its softness, one of its signatures.

Hendrick's | Scotland

Origin Scotland
Alcoholic Volume 44º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Caraway, angelica root, chamomile, coriander seed, orange and lemon peels, iris root, cucumber, Cubeba pepper, rose petals, elderberry and juniper flower.

Brief Description
Hendrick's revolutionized the Gin world when it introduced the fresh cucumber aromas and the soft scent of rose petals instead of the more traditional citric versions. Hendrick's was born at the turn of the millennium and soon it distanced from the status quo. Banished the citrus into the background and gave priority to the freshness of the cucumber and the rose petals elegance. Hendrick's also innovated in the production process which uses two different stills. The Bennet where botanicals are placed directly in infusion and the Carter-Head where botanicals are arranged in layers and their scents dragged by steam. Hendrick's comes from the combination of the strength of the first with the elegance of the second and last infusion and from the cucumber from Belgium and Holland and roses from Bulgaria. Hendrick's has a fresh and floral aromas but leaving space for the juniper.
