Seasonal and limited edition gins are now released by some larger distilleries at such a pace it leaves me wondering just how much effort has gone into developing recipe and with the release of Pinwydd coming just a year after the original I did worry that maybe the guys at The Gower Gin Company might have succumbed to the same fate. However, knowing the attention to Andrew and Sian pay to each aspect of production I knew it was foolish to expect anything less than excellent and I was very excited when the postman delivered my bottle. It didn’t take me long to open the bottle for a quick smell and at that point I knew it wasn’t going to be a gin that sat on the shelf for weeks waiting for me to taste. So, how does it taste?
I’ve wanted to try the original Bullards Gin for a while so I was very keen to meet the team at Junipalooza, when they asked me to review this version I was a little hesitant as I’ve not got the sweetest tooth so I was unsure that I’d do it justice. But just like the original, this gin is very good.
Once the preserve of a long Friday night train journey rush purchased from the nearest M&S gin in a tin has really upped its game this summer and with heatwave set to last I thought it was time to explore a few options available.
At both Junipalooza and Imbibe this year there was a big focus on aged gin, but how do they taste and how should you treat them?
