St George Dry Rye
St George Dry Rye is a gin for whiskey lovers, with juniper, malt and tremendous mouth feel.
St. George have over three decades at the vanguard of the American craft spirits revolution - distilling exceptional artisanal spirits with integrity. With a broad range of spirits on offer (gins, vodkas, absinthes, bourbons, single malts, rums, brandies and liqueurs) they pledge to craft quintessential spirits to delight hedonists and genius bartenders alike.
Forest-driven and earthy, St George Dry Rye has a 100% rye base, bringing a malty flavour to the forefront with juniper and black pepper following. Spicy and warming with a hint of caraway.
I love the green St George and decided to try the red rye version using the St George Day offer. The liquorice flavouring appealed to me and I noticed that the label mentions that whisky lovers would like this - I should have paid more attention to that description as I really do not like whisky and this does taste more of whisky than gin. Tried it with the suggested grapefruit garnish too but it does, as it says, still taste of whisky. Interesting idea but not for me, I'll be sticking with the more traditional gin flavours.
