Top 10 Gins

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. It is consistently the most expensive gin in the world at nearly $700 a bottle. It is also worth every penny. For ten generations, since 1691, the Nolets have perfected their gin. Aromatic from start to finish, the tightly guarded botanical list adds to its allure. Botanicals that are 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 finishing the other's potential. Then come spicy, warm citrus and a bouquet of the best botanical pie the earth can muster. No more need be added, as this unique experience will undoubtedly find the imbiber dreaming whilst tasting.
