Adamus | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 44,4º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals 18 botanicals in total, among which are cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, hibiscus, orange, lavender, lemon, pennyroyal, sage, Baga grapes and juniper.

Brief Description
Adamus is the jewel in the crown of Destilaria Levira and that’s what the name means: Adamus is diamond in ancient Greek. The distillery has almost a hundred years of history, dedicated mostly to the production of aguardente bagaceira. In the last few years, due to heavy investment in innovation and the development of new products, it created the Adamus range, entirely dedicated to super-premium products. 
The epic poem of Adamus, the Gin, began with a study into the organoleptic properties of an initial selection of 86 botanicals. It was the team’s intention to have a detailed knowledge of the raw materials with which they would make Adamus to best complement the Baga grape, typical of the region and the central botanical in the recipe. After various distillations, separately and individually, indispensable tests, some steps forward, some back, the final formula was decided upon with 18 botanicals. The team spared no efforts For them, satisfactory was not enough, only excellence was their goal. 
Adamus is a decidedly fruity Gin which escapes the more traditional rule of juniper being the central element. On the nose we note the gentle aroma of the grape and the exotic touch of the cardamom. Fruit occupies the central stage on the palate, with the grape being followed lightly by they citrus fruits, but also a more herbal side with the lavender and the sage.

Ventozelo | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 45º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Lemon, Coriander, Lemon Thyme, Bela-Luz Thyme, Lavender Amaranth, Mint and Juniper, among others.

Brief Description
It is hard to talk about this Gin without first talking about the Quinta which gives it its name. In the heart of the Douro, in the district of São João da Pesqueira, Quinta de Ventozelo extends across the hills for an impressive 600 hectares. It is there that some of Portugal’s best ports and table wines originate. It is also where you can find incredibly rich flora, with a clear Mediterranean influence.
It was this botanic richness which served as inspiration for the creation of this new Portuguese Gin. Lavender, lemon thyme, bela-luz thyme and amaranth are just some of the examples of botanicals that grow in the slatey soils of the Quinta. To these is added a secret blend of aromatic plants, thought up and created by the nursery Cantinho das Aromáticas, a partner in this project. The creation of Ventozelo Premium Dry Gin also counted on the collaboration of Instituto Abel Salazar in what became a clear alliance between experimentation, investigation, tradition and innovation.
Ventozelo marks itself out from the competition by its use of alcohol and aguardente obtained from grape must, and from the wine which give it wine aromas and flavours which are distinctly different from neutral alcohol made from a cereal base. It results in a smoother alcohol than one would expect from one with 45º.
On the nose, two notes immediately make themselves known. The flavour of wine, but also floral notes fill the nose with a gentle, almost sweet bouquet which pushes the juniper back a step. The palate is the confirmation of the aromas we found in the nose. The perfume of lavender, the oily touch of the bela-luz thyme and the freshness of the lemon thyme cross over each other, always supported by a soft alcohol which seems to be rounded by the sweetness of honey. The juniper appears only later to prove the dry nature of this Gin without losing its wine DNA.

Family of Hounds | Italy

Origin Italy
Alcoholic Volume 42º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Cardamom, Coriander, Ginger, Orange, Lavender, Lemon, Thyme, Grapefruit and Juniper

Brief Description
There are stories that are as simples as they are inspiring. That of Family of Hounds is one of them and it begins with some friends on a weekend away in the British countryside.
Strangely, it was there that they tried their first G&T. It was love at first sight. After that, there were innumerable tastings, seeing the differences between brands, discovering which they liked and disliked the most, culminating in the production of their own gin, when Family of Hounds was born, named in honour of their dogs. 
Family of Hounds is a London Dry and thus has a fairly small range of botanicals - nine - but there is still room for a little eccentricity. To the traditional orange, lemon, grapefruit, coriander seed and, of course, juniper, they added cardamom, ginger, lavender and thyme. 
Family of Hounds is fresher and more aromatic than more traditional London Drys. The juniper is there, but it is the exotic touch of cardamom and the freshness of the citrus fruits which first punctuate the nose. On the palate, Family of Hounds shows itself to be more complex than that. On first impact, we straight away sense the cardamom that is the signature of this gin. After that, the herbal note of the thyme, all the splendour of the citrus fruits and the juniper which act as back up. Surprising is the hotter touch of the ginger which turns the flavour of this gin longer than normal.

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.

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.

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.
