Botanical Odyssey of Gin
Welcome to the Botanical Odyssey of Gin tasting set! Gin is not just defined by resinous and piney juniper, but all of its ingredients working harmoniously together. While the law dictates that to be called Gin, a spirit must predominantly taste of juniper, there are dozens of other botanicals that make up this layered and complex spirit.
The Botanical Odyssey of Gin pack contains 4 different gins in 20cl ceramic bottles, as well as a 24 page booklet explaining the history behind some of gin's complex botanicals and what they add to the overall ensemble.
Each gin included has been created as a celebration of a particular set of flavours: Citrus, Floral, Herbal and Spiced. While the juniper centers each gin, all will allow you to explore gin’s four most common flavour areas in full epicurean detail.
The Citrus is fresh and zesty whereas the Spiced has a deep, warming heat. The Herbal is verdant and complex while the Floral is perfumed and elegant.
The aim of the Botanical Odyssey of Gin pack is not to sell you the merits of four individual gins, but to help you find which type botanicals you prefer most. It is as much a set for the adventurous and the discerning to uncover more about what constitutes the flavour of gin as it is for beginners looking to gain an overview on this most unique of spirits.
In the accompanying booklet you will also find suggestions for other commercially available gins that are similar to styles found in the pack so that once you have discovered a favourite flavour area, you have a few hints as to what else might be best suited to you.
Botanical Odyssey of Gin is a perfect gift for someone looking for some GINspiration as a gift!
