Dancing Sands Barrel Aged Gin
700ml – 48% Alc./Vol.
A magnificent spirit that brings together the worlds of gin and rum. Beginning with our signature Dry Gin, with its warming peppery spice and cardamom, this gin is aged for three months in used 14-year Gold Rum barrels and new French Oak barrels. The end result is a subtly sweet spirit with a light golden hue.
Nose: Aromas of polished oak, soft brown sugar and vanilla are joined by ground cardamom, dried junipers, cloves and pepper.
Taste: Spicier up front than the nose, with a full body, accompanied by sweet oak, molasses, bittersweet juniper and baking spices.
With tonic: Juniper comes to the lead here, with oak providing depth of flavour and a vanilla note. This also works well on the rocks, with soda water, or as the base for a Negroni.
Enjoy on the rocks or with a premium tonic or soda water.
Tonic Pairing: We recommend East Imperial Grapefruit Tonic
