Rutte Celery Gin
In the Glass
Brilliant, crystal clear.
The nose is rather delicate allowing the sweet scents of the pot still distillate to rise from the glass. The celery is certainly evident and it seems to accentuate the fruity notes of the juniper and the sweetness of the angelica with hints of spring flowers and citrus.
The palate echoes the nose delivering soft, sweet herbal notes with vibrant citrus that finish with a touch of mint and cardamon.
Intensity & Texture
Medium-bodied with ideal balance and a beautiful complexity. The botanicals are pronounced while delicate with great length.
For the Gin lover it does not get much cooler than a unique Gin from a great Dutch craft distiller. The celery addition may sound odd at first but once tasted it makes perfect sense and then you will crave it.
The Rutte Gins are not cheap but that's not the point. These are true artisan products and I am confident the Gin lovers will find these Gins to be worth every penny.
Rutte is the smallest distillery in Holland that happens to be partnered with one of the nation's largest distilleries, De Kuyper Royal Distillers. For 143 years Rutte has made its home in the historic port city of Dordrecht, The Netherlands. Their artisinal spirits are made entirely with natural ingredients. The Rutte Celery Gin is delightfully unusual with a pronounced celerly note. The botanicals used are: juniper, celery, coriander, angelica root, sweet orange peel, and cardamon.
How to Enjoy
The Rutte Celery Gin is a unique flavor sensation and I want to experience these delicate flavors so I suggest adding very little to this gin. A quality and fresh Vermouth would be a great pairing.
