A historic gin from drinks giants, Seagram. Seagram’s Extra Dry has been in production since 1939.
Well known for its bumpy bottle, this gin was somewhat ahead of the barrel-aging curve – when it first launched it was aged for 90 days in oak barrels. Somewhat ironically, as the craze for barrel aged gin has taken off, Seagram’s own aging seems to have diminished, it no longer claims to be “rested” before bottling, but still has a faint amber hue that suggests some wood contact.
For years, prior to the current boom in gin production, this was one of few, if not the only, American gin on the market.
The gin has a classic dry profile, with notes of juniper, coriander, bittersweet citrus, and earthy angelica root.
A great value and reliable mixer, this gin was named-checked by Snoop Dogg in his 1994 ‘Gin and Juice’!
