Gin of the Month – May 2017
Thomas Dakin Small Batch Gin
Created in a small-scale pot still, Thomas Dakin Gin contains 11 botanicals, including juniper, coriander seed, cubebs, angelica root, liquorice, sweet orange peel, grapefruit peel and horseraddish to name a few.
To begin, juniper merges with horseradish in an unusual mix. Sweet orange and a sharper grapefruit join soon after, along with classic gin flavours of piney juniper, coriander seed and sweet liquorice. It’s different whilst also being respectful of the fact that it is first and foremost, juniper centred. Gin lovers will be intrigued by its flavours and are forced to try to describe the flavours they experience. That’s why we love it.
At The Butlers Arms we have over 30 gins available in our gin bar, so you’ll have to keep coming back to try them all.
