No.3 Dry London Gin Beautiful New Spirit from Berry Bros

[20/10/10] 

As W. Somerset Maugham declared, “martinis should always be stirred, not shaken, so that the molecules lie sensuously one on top of the other.” Whether martinis should be stirred or shaken has always been hotly debated by bartenders the world over, but many agree that martinis made with gin, that tear-jerking juniper-infused spirit, should be made with the soft hands of a lover – more third-date-slow, than one-night-gungho.

The new luxury gin by Berry Bros. & Rudd is the perfect case in point. No. 3 Dry London Gin is a classic, clean and fresh London-style gin, with only three fruits and three spices, including Moroccan coriander seed, angelica root and grapefruit peel, as well as the soft mellow characteristics of Italian juniper – and with a 46%ABV the resulting martinis are going to kick like a mule wearing silk slippers.

Named for the London address of Berry Bros. & Rudd, one of the world's oldest wine merchants, each bottle bears a key insignia, representing The Parlour, a secret room in the wine cellar frequented by the likes of Lord Byron, William Pitt and Napoleon III, who would swill the finest gin with just a touch of lemon peel.

So you're in good company.
