Premium Gin: Batch 2 is the second batch of premium gin from the East London Liquor Company and is once again a variation on their signature gin. Considered a premium gin, East London’s Premium Gin Batch No. 2 is distilled from 100% British wheat spirit and is infused with the following botanicals:

  • Coriander
  • Angelica Root
  • Thyme
  • Winter savory
  • Fennel seeds
  • Lavender
  • Lemon Peel
  • Sage
  • Bay leaf

Distilled in a custom designed and hand-built Arnold Holstein still, it is bottled at 47% ABV and is handcrafted in small batches.

Design:

eastlondon7-1600x1066The bottle is simple in design and the label does have an East End feel to it. You could easily imagine this on the shelf of a 1920’s East End boozer and this only adds the strength of the brand.

Nose:

Subtle juniper with big savoury herbaceous notes.

Finish:

Hints of fennel and fresh lemon, dry and aromatic.

Recommended serve/garnish:

G&T with fresh sage leaf. Wet martini with dry martini garnished with a ‘gin-pickled cucumber’

Conclusion

In conclusion, this is a fantastic gin. It’s lovely when taken neat or with just a little water and of course, it makes a lovely refreshing G&T.

Score: 9/10

Price: £32
