Raise a glass of Her Majesty The Queen’s favourite tipple to mark the Platinum Jubilee this summer. The Suffolk-based sustainable distillery Adnams is set to release a limited-edition bottle of its award-winning First Rate Gin to celebrate the occasion. The London Dry gin is produced from Adnams’ trophy-winning triple grain Longshore Vodka, only the finest cut is then distilled with thirteen carefully selected botanicals to create a bold and complex gin to savour.
For this special limited release, Adnams First Rate Gin was placed in an American oak barrel for a period of a few weeks to create a barrel-rested gin with further complexity and richer flavours and aromas, most notably herbal hints of thyme, warming spice and citrussy juniper, alongside notes of toasted oak and sweet vanilla.
The cask has yielded just 300 bottles, making it a carefully crafted and unique gin – perfect to celebrate this once in a lifetime event. Serve with Indian Tonic Water for a classic G&T or this quality gin can also be sipped neat with a splash of water.
At 57.15% ABV, Adnams Distiller’s Choice Platinum Jubilee Gin will be available to buy from 23rd May from Adnams.co.uk and in Adnams stores.
