Let me start this review with a boring introduction:
I don’t like coloured Gins. I find that they don’t go in the right direction, I’m not impressed tasting a coloured spirit.
This is how I first tasted London No. 1 Original Blue Gin, with my prejudices, with low expectations, trying not to be disappointed…but I eventually loved this Gin, for its smell and taste.
The colour is given by a final infusion of the spirit with Gardenia flowers and bergamot oil, but the most noticeable aspect is the alchol volume, of a good 47%, a strong and well structured Gin.
At the nose is very junipery and spicy, lemon comes after juniper. Drinking it neat is a strong experience, for its high alcohol volume, but it’s a well composed Gin.
London No. 1 Original Blue Gin seems a very good Gin to mix, perfect for a Martini with a twist, strong and dry, but it’s surely great for a G&T in the Spanish way.
