Beefeater's Borrough's Reserve Gin is made to founder James Burrough's original 1860 recipe. Distilled by hand using his original 'Still number 12' with a 268 litre capacity, it is then rested in French oak barrels which used to contain Lillet - the first gin ever to do so. There are notes of citrus and subtle spice.
TASTING NOTES BY SUMMERFRUITCUP
Nose: Juniper, orange, dark caramel and woody spice.
Taste: Soft texture, with plenty of vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg up front. Whilst quite sweet to start, this moves on to a dryer, slightly tannin-like flavour, then the classic juniper and angelica gin flavours with a little citrus, before finishing with some vanilla oaky notes.
