MARTIN MILLER'S GIN
- Guest Blogger -
Leading the gin renaissance since 1999, Martin Miller’s Gin was created by gin lover Martin Miller and his two friends, David Bromige and Andreas Versteegh. In creating his gin, the traditionalist in Martin Miller demanded he make a gin that ‘tasted of gin’ and not, in his words, ‘of some highly flavoured confection’. To this end he insisted on only employing the methods and techniques of the ‘traditional’ gin makers; sticking rigidly to their tried and tested methods and their classic range of botanicals.
Martin Miller’s Gin is distilled in England in pot still using two separate distillations which imparts a unique balance of citrus and juniper. It is blended to a bottling strength of 40% ABV with Icelandic Spring water, it is this water which gives Martin Miller’s Gin its award winning gentle bouquet and trademark softness.
Martin Miller’s Gin has a classic palette of gin botanicals; juniper, cassia, orris root, angelica, liquorice root and coriander along with the required dried citrus peels, lemon, bitter orange and lime. By distilling the citrus botanicals separately to the earthier it creates a better balance between the two, allowing the citrus flavours to shine through thus giving the gin a refreshing, modern twist on tradition.
