Stockholms Branneri Dry Gin (500ml)

SWEDEN
$74. 99 Bottle
$899.88 Dozen
ABV: 40%
Tasting note: Produced at Stockholm's first craft distillery using organic wheat spirit, this Nordic take on traditional dry gin employs seven botanicals including heather, elderflower and rosemary. On the nose, you get classic London dry keynotes of juniper, coriander seed, white pepper and orange peel as well as hints of curry leaf and liquorice root. The concentration at low ABV is also impressive, starting soft and oily but building into a sweeping fan of coriander seed and pepper warmth. It's momentarily bittersweet before the final stages end piney, fresh and spicy. Obvious Martini potential, otherwise recommended with lemon peel and a sprig of rosemary to emphasise the citrus and herb elements. 40% Alc./Vol.

...a simple botanical line up done with impeccable finesse. The mouth goes everywhere at once – from soft summer flowers, to sharp sweet citrus and to snow dusted pine. Incredible.... That such a fantastic tasting gin has come from two absolute newbies is not as surprising as it should be; the Gin community is a welcoming one and Calle and Anna had already soaked up a lot of second hand wisdom before beginning their adventure. Calle is quick to name check sources of wisdom: “In Sweden we received a lot of help from Jon at Hërno, who has been a super partner in our journey. We hope that together we can educate the Swedish consumer that there’s an alternative to the larger established industrial scale brands.” - ginfoundry.com
