Bathtub Gin Bottling Note

An extraordinary award-winning gin from Ableforth's. Made using the traditional method of Cold Compounding (or in layman’s terms – infusing). Very high quality copper pot-still spirit is infused with ingredients including juniper, orange peel, coriander, cassia, cloves and cardamom, with the length of the compounding period controlled entirely by periodic sampling.

The result is an extraordinary gin, lightly tinted by the botanicals, and with a flavour which is both bold, and perfumed all at once. Sure to be a hit with amateur and professional mixologists alike.

Packaged using brown paper, string and wax, the presentation puts us in mind of a Victorian apothecary!

Bathtub Gin & Tonic recipe:

- Fill a highball with ice and pour 50ml Bathtub Gin
- Top with Fever-tree Mediterranean tonic water
- Garnish with a slice of orange to really bring out the flavour of orange peel

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: An initially juniper-rich bouquet is backed up with a solid backbone of rich grain spirit. Top notes of cardamom and orange blossom are evident with just a suggestion of cinnamon.

Palate: The initial focus is juniper, but the earthier botanicals make themselves known in the initial palate too. Mouthfeel is exceptionally viscous and creamy – this is good spirit, and it makes itself known.

Finish: The juniper subsides and gives way to cardamom and cinnamon, with a late resurgence from orange peel.

Overall: A most unusual, but quite entrancing gin.

Bathtub Gin Reviews

One to try

Treated to this as a gift - it’s lovely. I like that the top is sealed and corked- it builds anticipation. It has a mellowness and delicacy that is lacking in some of the over flavoured gins. It won’t be the last bottle I have 😃

Fragrant and flavourful

Basically delicious! I'm no gin expert but I like my gin quite traditional/original. This was a surprise as it was so full of flavour but kept to its juniper origins too.

Half Decent. In my humble opinion.

First gin review, This is my first bathtub, 30cl bathtub, 1 ice cube, 50mm fever tree gold. slight bitterness to start. Cant pick up on any of the flavours. Quite pleasant towards the finish. 6 out of ten. But would most certainly try again, for a second opinion.

Great gin - a fave!

Not sure why anybody would give this anything other than a glowing review? Has been a solid, full-flavoured go to of ours for years now, always have a bottle open.
