St. Laurent Vieux Gin (700ml)

CANADA
$99. 99 Bottle
$1199.88 Dozen
ABV: 47%
Tasting note: This is the distillery's regular gin, aged in ex-whisky casks for over a year, then infused with laminaria seaweed (kombu). The result has a bouquet suggesting green balsa wood, thyme, lemon grass as well as hints of sea breeze, but with a stronger citrus accent in the mouth. In fact, the wood input is slight. Instead, you get flavours of lemon chutney and juniper combined with frail salinity, finishing with a refreshing astringency. Other botanicals include cassia bark, licorice root, lemon peel, bitter orange peel, cubeb berry and grain of paradise. 47% Alc./Vol.
