Poetic License Northern Dry Gin - 70cl - 43.2% ABV
Poetic License is owned by Mark Hird, a leisure-industry veteran with a hotel, a microbrewery and a distillery to his name. Based in The Roker Hotel in County Durham, the county in which Elizabeth Barrett Browning was born, the distillery took inspiration from the prominent poet, creating gins that, with their taste and packaging, aim to capture the romance of literature.
Poetic License Northern Dry Gin
Poetic License Northern Dry Gin has 13 botanicals, with juniper taking the lead, followed closely by coriander seeds and angelica root. Green cardamom, dried Persian lime and a variety of peppers also prop up the bill.
Piney juniper comes through in this classically styled gin, with cardamom and cubeb adding a drying spice that lingers beautifully. It’s a gin geeks gin and at 43.2% holds up very well in a G&T.
