A delightful organic gin produced by Radermacher Distillery, the oldest distillery still operational in Belgium.
With just under two centuries of experience, these distillers know how to put together a good spirit.
And so it proves with this gin, which has a classic citrus driven profile. The gin is made using traditional botanicals of aniseed, bedstraw, orange and lemon peel, coriander, rosemary and (of course) juniper. These are infused with a distillate of 100% organic grain.
After this, the spirit undergoes something of a transformation, being aged in a former Belgian whisky barrel from Lambertus distillery for 6 months. This short maturation totally changes the flavour of the gin, rounding off the more spirituous edges, and adding notes of vanilla, oak and toffee.
Another entry into the increasingly competitive barrel-aged gin market, this Belgian gin more than holds its own, and is good enough to drink neat.
