Nolet's Reserve Dry Gin is consistently the most expensive gin in the world

Nolet's Reserve Dry Gin

Nolet's Family Reserve Dry Gin is the godfather of all artisanal gins. At nearly $700 a bottle, it's consistently the most expensive gin in the world. It is also worth every penny. For 10 generations, since 1691, the Nolets have perfected their gin. Aromatic from start to finish, it boasts a tightly guarded botanical list, which adds to its allure. Botanicals known to be in the mash bill include juniper, saffron, orris root, cassia, verbena, licorice and rose petals. As the most expensive spice in the world, saffron is rarely used in spirits, but it is included here, giving this gin a slightly golden hue. The nose and palate are what dreams are made of, melding together and completing the other's potential. What follow are spicy, warming citrus and a bouquet of the best botanical pie the earth can muster.
