1897 Quinine Gin Bottling Note

1897 Quinine Gin is an exciting, innovative London Dry Gin which has been made using cinchona bark - the natural and traditional source of quinine - as well as cold distilled fresh lemon and grapefruit peels. The cold-distillation captures the notes of citrus and cinchona wonderfully, and complement the classically-styled botanicals that are also used.

Not only is it delicious, 1897 Quinine Gin also supports Malaria No More UK. This superb charity works to protect the millions of lives still at risk from the disease - whilst tremendous progress has been made in this fight, a child still dies from malaria every two minutes. Over 50% of the producer's profit (at least £5 per bottle sold) will be donated to support Malaria No More UK. This is enough to buy, deliver and hang a mosquito net for a family living at risk from malaria in Africa.

A fantastic gin helping a fantastic cause. Top stuff.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Clean and elegant as it opens. Notes of cloudy lemonade with a grapefruit twist are soon joined by earthy juniper. This leads the nose to the vibrant, rounded cinchona bark elements, with leafy, herbaceous touches complementing it.

Palate Fresh and dynamic, the classic bitter-though-floral quinine evokes old fashioned tonics. Spicy coriander and cinnamon build on the mid-palate, with playful touches of liquorice and citrus ensure it remains refreshing.

Finish Warm notes of nutmeg carry on to the finish, before making way for woody juniper and the last hints of cinchona. A final flash of grapefruit closes it out.

Reviews for 1897 Quinine Gin
Really nice
Some people don't seem to like the complexity but I think it's a treat - really glad to have found it, and already on my second bottle.

Reading other comments I’m not sure why people are raving about it, it’s a average gin with a fair price the flavours are to complex unless mixed, many a nice cocktail could be made with it but by itself it’s bland.

Not good
The mixture of flavours is to complex and ruins the gin, less is more in this case and I think they’ve over done it

Rootsy, Floral, Perfect
Just the right level of bitterness to counteract the floral topnotes provided by the citrus and what feels like honeysuckle (is that one of the botanicals used?). Where this really comes alive is in a Negroni - the bitterness adds hugely to the vermouth.

brilliant gin and a great cause!
Tastes really good - and all towards ending malaria - fantastic combo. A delicious G and T, and you're helping protect children from a deadly disease

Great new discovery!
Quinine may have been around for centuries but glad to see there are still new (surprisingly delicious) uses being found for it... adds a refreshingly distinct new taste to my favourite G&T, with the added bonus of a supporting a great cause!

Incredible Cause - Excellent Gin
I found this more floral, and herbaceous than bitter like tonic water, but there's no doubt that the gin is absolutely great. I had a Martini which was lovely with 3 olives.
