Nolet's Reserve Dry Gin

Top 10 Spirits 2012

Nolet's Reserve Dry Gin is the epitome of distilling

GIN

Regal, artistic, stunning, royal... and that's just the bottling! This gin is the epitome of distilling when the goal is to make the finest spirit using only the most exquisite ingredients and sparing no expense. The Nolet Distillery in Schiedam, Holland has been distilling remarkable gin since 1691. Each batch is individually distilled using an unusually high concentration of botanicals; chiefly juniper, verbena and saffron. The juniper is the base of this traditional dry gin. The addition of verbena gives it a citrus flavor and smooth finish, while the saffron uses its aroma and elegant heated strength on the palate to spice up the finish. There is nothing like this spirit. It has aimed high and nailed its target. We even enjoy it straight at room temperature. Bravo!

Price: $700
