Sloane's Dry Gin
The primary talking point with Sloane's Gin is their practice of distilling each botanical separately and blending the single botanical spirits to create the desired Gin. In sum nine botanicals are utilized: juniper, iris root, coriander, angelica root, cardamom, liquorice root, vanilla beans,and fresh oranges and lemons from Spain. Curiously this tasty Gin is bottled at 40% abv rather than a higher proof that is expected. However, the botanicals pop from the glass without the aid of a higher proof.
The brand is named for Sir Hans Sloane (1660–1753) a celebrated botanist who is credited with introducing many exotic botanicals to the UK. Sloane’s Gin is crafted in the Toorank Distillery Group in The Netherlands. the distillery was originally founded by Metaxa in 1978. Sloane’s Gin is a super premium spirit in the distillery's portfolio and has proven it's station by winning numerous awards in international competitions.
Brilliant, crystal clear. This Gin is very aromatic with spicy cardamom notes hitting first followed quickly by the citrus and soft peppery notes that lead to subtle hints of vanilla. The palate echoes the nose delivering a vibrant citrus-focused core with the other botanicals bringing support on the flanks with floral notes rising on the finish with accents of lemon zest. Medium-bodied with perfect balance and a complex mélange of citrus and exotic botanicals.
