Boodles Gin is made with labour and patience. It begins as a clean spirit distilled from British wheat. The liquid is then redistilled in a Carter Head copper still, which allows the botanicals to infuse gradually into the spirit. Interestingly, Boodles Gin contains no citrus botanicals - a practical decision made by original distillers who expected a proper drink to include a slice of lemon or lime.
Boodles Gin is mellow but herbal on the nose which balances the essential piney notes. It is sweet to start with the traditional cassia, cinnamon and caraway coming though but a touch of sharpness arises from the use of herbal botanicals (sage, rosemary, nutmeg and coriander), and ends with a very smooth finish. A deceptively easy drink.
