Bullards Distillery, exclusive to Virgin Wines
Virgin Wines have been working with Norwich-based Bullards Distillery to produce a new gin; a London Dry, the botanicals are re-distilled with the gin and juniper for elegance.
With an emphasis is on easy-drinking freshness, additional flavourings have been limited to lime leaf and cardamom.
Using fewer ingredients means that each must complement the others and be of the highest quality - there's no room to hide.
Fortunately, Virgin's spirits buyer, Dave Roberts, and Master Distiller of Bullards, Dave Crofts, have succeeding in creating a distinctive and very elegant gin.
L&C Limited Edition London Dry Gin (£41.99, Virgin Wines) aromatic, citrussy and botanical with lifted cardamom on the palate; zesty, fresh and inviting. Balanced, harmonious, elegant and long.
Serve as an aperitif, ideally neat. In the Garden. On a sunny day.
