Ginbey Mediterranean Gin 700ml
A rather excellent gin here all the way from Lebanon, created by Faouzi Issa from the Domaine des Tourelles winery. It's made with a delicious selection of 14 botanicals, including a base of juniper and coriander, plus a whole host of ingredients sourced from Lebanon. Rose petals, pomegranate seeds, citruses, spices, and more all feature in this expression, distilled in a 400-litre copper still, with some specially selected ones up in a basket to allow for a delicate flavour extraction. After distillation, the spirit is rested in amphora jars for six months, helping to round out the gin's flavour profile and mouth feel.
Piney juniper on the nose, lemon, warm spices, and rose petal. Take a taste and there’s a beautifully-creamy spirit, the predominant taste is juniper joined by floral, spicy and a sweet liquorice note.
