Gin – Poor Toms Dry Gin
Distillery – Poor Toms Distillery
Description – Have we mentioned yet this is our favourite summer gin?
You can mix this one up into a number of cocktails, but if you go down this path, we recommend you stick to cocktails that will let the gin shine. We haven’t tried it as yet, but a few people (including one of our members) sings the praises of a Poor Toms Martini.
When you taste Poor Toms neat, you’ll immediately notice what a light, floral gin this is. You’ll find the juniper in here easily enough, along with other traditional botanicals. Coriander seeds, cubeb pepper, angelica, cardamom and cinnamon are all present and beautifully balanced. In addition Poor Toms have included some further interesting botanicals in the form of granny smith apples, chamomile , lemon myrtle and strawberry gum leaf.
It’s this strawberry gum leaf you’re enhancing with the strawberry garnish and it works perfectly in this gin. Poor Toms Dry doesn’t sit around long on your palate, but it offers a floral sweetness to begin, with an interesting savoury spice briefly towards the end. As Englishmen we can’t help thinking we’ve missed out by not enjoying this with a great Indian curry as yet!
We’re pretty sure you’re going to be enjoying this a fair bit over summer, this is our go to on long summer afternoons in the park, on the terrace, or by the water.
Enjoy, we’re sure you’ll love it as much as we do!
