D1 London Gin
D1 London Gin wonderfully marries classic aspects of the juniper-based spirit with contemporary characteristics. D. J. Limbrey Distilling Co. use a narrow cut of triple-distilled grain spirit and a small but well-considered selection of botanicals, including angelica root, cassia bark, coriander, orange and lemon peels, liquorice, almond and nettle(!), as well as the almighty juniper berry. A superbly British gin suitable for cocktails, G&Ts or simply enjoyed over ice.
The awesome floral skull design on the bottle was made by contemporary artist Jacky Tsai.
D1 London Gin has already been highly praised, winning two Master Medals, one in the Contemporary Category and one in the Super Premium Category, at the 2014 Gin Masters.

Finish: Long and rather sweet.
Overall: Plenty of classic notes hit with good, modern twists to it. Good show!
