Martin Miller and his two friends, David Bromige and Andreas Versteegh, kicked off the whole gin ‘new wave’ back in 1999 with the launch of their first gin. They took a desire to rejuvenate the fate of gin and authentically source key botanicals and decided to use the finest, unfiltered, Icelandic water to ensure the quality of the product.
In Martin Miller’s eponymous gin, a sherbet orange dominates on both the nose and palate, disguising to some extent an otherwise bold, juniper character. Hints of liquorice, coriander and nutmeg linger in the background. There is a light cucumber edge and a sweetness that comes in part from the softness of the water which add to the overall complexity of the spirit.
