Nginious Smoked & Salted Gin
The clever chaps behind nginious! Gin have created a Smoked & Salted variation of their excellent Swiss gin. This features juniper, bitter oranges, quinces, ginger and coriander, as well as cold-smoked chestnuts (which were smoked for 40 hours) and a rare smoked stone salt.
Like all nginious! Gins, the Smoked & Salted Gin is distilled in separate batches and subsequently blended. Separately from juniper we have distilled bitter oranges, quinces, coriander and ginger.
The real surprise, however, is the use of smoked chestnuts in its own batch. They lend the gin its unique smoky flavour, without dominating. For the final refinement of this blended gin a rare smoked stone salt from the Swiss Alps, the “Sel à l’Ancienne”, is added.
Juniper, bitter oranges, quinces, coriander, ginger, chestnuts, smoke and salt.
Before the maceration the chestnuts were intensively cold-smoked for 40 hours. They lend the nginious! Smoked & Salted Gin its special smoky flavour.
Cracked black pepper, peanut and smoked monkfish with hints of orange and coriander.
A little more juniper, pine and oak, lip-smackingly salted, mostly savoury but with touches of salted caramel.
Salty, briny juniper and mixed peels.
