Bathtub Cut Gin
PROHIBITION LIQUOR CO.
Country: AUSTRALIA Style: Bathtub
Price per bottle: Availability: Australia, New Zealand, Singapore
Nose: Distinctly coastal at first with notes of plump prawns and seaweed, then freshly shaved wood, spicy coriander, bright juniper and a touch of oregano.
Palate: Honeyed notes with aniseed herbs and menthol. Orange peel, resinous juniper and woody notes.
Finish: An alcohol heat crescendo with a little drying woodiness, juniper and herbal pepper.
Comments: If you can handle the heat, there is a beautiful gin here. A little water brings out more sweetness and citrus on the palate.
Nose: A gentle nose with only a touch of spirit – surprising given the high ABV – but there are discernible aromas of juniper, citrus, and spice.
Palate: Deceptively sippable; the alcohol is incredibly wellintegrated. Oily juniper and biscuity coriander seed make way for exotic ginger spice and cardamom, along with cassia and cinnamon.
Finish: More spice with a gradually building alcohol warmth.
Comments: The ABV makes applications more challenging, but this is undoubtedly a very well-made gin.
