Yet another tip-top vintage cocktail from the Handmade Cocktail Company. This is their Martinez, the drink we have to thank for giving us the Dry Martini. However, that's not all we have to thank it for. We of course love it just for being superb in its own right!
Using a recipe of Professor Cornelius Ampleforth's Old Tom Gin, sweet vermouth, high quality bitters and maraschino liqueur, the Handmade Cocktail Company honour the Martinez with care and attention. The result of this loving approach is an incredibly moreish Martinez.
The concept of the ‘Vintage Cocktail’ range is simple – you get all the ingredients for a superb cocktail pre-mixed, all you have to do is pour it over ice, stir, then strain off into your glass and garnish (in this instance with a twist of lemon peel). Each bottle is marked with the year of the cocktail's 'birth'.
Nose: Juniper and luscious spice on the nose. Oily and aromatic with notes of potpourri, burnt brown sugar and hints of geraniums.
Palate: Nutmeg and cloves mix beautifully with a core of sweet juniper, frankincense and potpourri. It becomes tangy and slightly tart with time on the palate, offering up notes of puckering citrus (kumquats, mandarins) and Sherry.
Finish: Long, citrus-led finish. Hints of Rhubarb and Custard sweets, and mixed spices.
Overall: A beautifully rich, sophisticated cocktail, the Martini’s forebear offers far more fruit than its modern day successor.
