Tarquin'S Handcrafted Cornish Gin Navy Strength 70Cl

Tarquin'S Handcrafted Cornish Gin Navy Strength 70Cl

Ref: C058

Bottled at Navy Strength 57% abv this is distilled in Cornwall in small batches, a contemporary take on London Dry Gin but Plymouth style.

The recipe is the same as that of Tarquin’s Dry Gin, though the botanicals have been increased somewhat. In the lineup is fresh orange, lemon, grapefruit, coriander, violet, juniper, cinnamon, angelica, orris, cardamom, liquorice and almond.

On the nose, vivid and fresh juniper comes through strongly with an underlying hint of heat, though this could be down to both the high ABV and also the cinnamon content. The warm, coriander citrus so noticeable in the "standard" gin, joins in too.

The cinnamon notes hit the tongue instantly, and the roots fill the mouth, bringing both an earthy taste and a rich feel. The juniper is less obvious on the palate compared to its aroma, though it comes through in a big way on the finish, leaving an strong note of pine on the tongue – as though one had taken a bite out of a Christmas tree.

Tarquin himself describes it as having a “more intense juniper on the nose, with a lovely peppery spice on the palate and rich earthy citrus notes. All in all it’s pretty serious stuff and a very exciting liquid, particularly in a higher ABV cocktail. It makes a ridiculously good Negroni or Gimlet.”

It also makes for a superb G&T – with a slice of grapefruit bolster the citrus notes and help the other botanicals to shine through.
