Pickerings 1947 GinPickerings 1947 Gin

Pickering's Original 1947 is going down a storm particularly in Asia where it has just picked up Silver in the Hong Kong International Wine and Spirits Awards, you'll see it now wherever Pickering's red top is sold. They strongly recommend it with Fever Tree Bitter Lemon, or with Fever Tree Ginger Ale and a squeeze of lemon. The botanicals in red top Pickering's are juniper, coriander, cardamom, angelica, fennel, anise, lemon, lime and cloves. But they always wanted to recreate the original 1947 which is much spicier with cardamom and beefed up coriander, clove and cinnamon, less citrus and no angelica. On the nose: fresh with spicy clean notes, a hint of liquorice, the tang of herbal toothpaste, the greenness of juniper balanced by the musky aromas of Indonesian clove cigarettes. On the palate; an instant hit of spice equivalent to breathing deeply the air of Khari Baoli, Asia's biggest spice market in Old Delhi, yes it really is that spicy. Woody aromas of cinnamon and the bitter sweet fragrance of cloves all mingle together for an intense flavour.
