In the Glass

Appearance

Brilliant, crystal clear.

Aromatics

The nose is quite expressive being led by citrus with fresh, green herbs and juniper not far behind. Exotic brown spices emerge after several nosings providing a warming sense.

Flavor

The palate echoes the nose while being more vibrant and spicy with the secondary brown spices taking the lead now being followed by citrus and juniper with hints of sandalwood and black pepper.

Intensity & Texture

Medium to full-bodied with an assertive and complex melange of botanicals that present themselves one after another from the front palate to the very, very long finish.

Cool Factor

A

For the Gin lover it does not get much cooler than a unique Gin from a great Dutch craft distiller.

Value Grade

B

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.

Analysis

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 Dry Gin is distilled with juniper, coriander, angelica, orris root, cassia, bitter orange peel, and fennel.

How to Enjoy

The Rutte Dry is very versatile behind the bar working well in most any classic Gin cocktail while adding a certain stamp of personality to a Negroni.
