The Gilbeys Gin is a traditional London Dry English Gin, which serves twelve different herbal botanicals in each and every taste
After the opening the bottle and the pouring the renowned Gilbeys Gin fills the room with intense fragrance of fiery spices. The taste of the colorful Gilbeys Gin stands with a creamy and very finely balanced combination of spicy juniper berry which is the base ingredient and zesty citrus aromas. This flavor combination is accompanied by gentle coriander and Orris root which give the whole an additional and full-bodied character. In the lingering finish of the Gilbeys Dry Gin the flavors of Orris root and coriander and a keen touch of acidity dominate the palate. Long after consumption a pleasant sensation is left on the palate which makes you want to reach for more.
The English Gilbeys Gin is a dry traditional Gin that can be proud of its long history. The story goes back to the year 1857 when the two brothers Alfred and Walter Gilbey returned from their military service and set up a wine import business in London England in the basement of a retail shop on Oxford Street. Over the following years the two brothers expanded further and established distilleries in countries such as Uruguay, Namibia, New Zealand, Mauritius and Mozambique.
During its rapid expansion the brothers developed the renowned Gilbeys Gin. The popular Gin is made from a 100% neutral grain spirit. Even today the Gin is fired after the original top secret recipe. The recipe includes more than twelve different botanicals including herbs, juniper berry and spices which undergo a classic triple distillation process and this is how the Gilbeys Gin receives its purity and its excellent flavor. After all these years the affordable and classic Gilbeys Gin is still a favorite amongst consumers.
London Dry Gin is dry and the dominant Botanical is the juniper. The difference between London Gin and London Dry Gin is simple: the "Dry" may have no sweetening substances added. London Dry Gin has Botanicals added in every stage of production. Flavouring and coloring agents are allowed, however a sugar addition is prohibited.
The popular Gilbeys Gin is a bargain priced Gin and is easily accessible world-wide and is presented in a simple and easily held clear glass bottle. The label on the bottle is red-bordered with white diamond on the lettering of the Gin and a black dragon can also be seen. The Gin is sealed with a red classic screw cap.
The Gilbeys Gin is one of the most versatile Gins on the market and is most suitable for mixing long drinks, cocktails as well as for pure enjoyment. It is particularly recommended to mix the Gin for a classic Gin and tonic. For this purpose we recommend a 28 Drinks Tonic Water and Fever Tree Tonic Water.
