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.

Boodles | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Carraway, Rosemary, Angelica (root and seeds), Cassia, Coriander seeds, Nutmeg, Sage and Juniper.

Brief Description
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
