For something a little different, try Dancing Cow Distilling delicately oak-aged gin.
After distillation, they cut the gin to 43% and then age it in stainless steel casks on a combination of sherry cask and American oak wood chunks. The process is carefully monitored because they don't want too much oak flavour - just a delicate layer on top of the botanicals.
The result is a truly different gin - vanilla, sherry and oak flavours on top of fruity botanical notes. We like it with pomegranate seeds and fresh basil leaves in a G&T and it also makes a grand Negroni.
Felicity Murray – the Editor of the influential Drinks Report reviewed our oak aged gin in 2016:
“I enjoyed it with tonic and lime because it has all the essential aromas and flavours of a traditional London Dry style gin but with a subtle added edge of vanilla. It has smoothness yet is clean and refreshing.
On its own it works perfectly too. I think it has to be one of the very best oak-aged gins Ive tasted – the balance seems just right. The oak does not overpower the botanicals in the gin or its freshness.”
