Old English, England

Profile: Spicy, Complex.

Taste: Black pepper, juniper, celery.

Recommended Garnish: Grapefruit, anise.

I think I was expecting an old-school, dry, juniper forward gin when I saw this bottle. I was pleasantly surprised at how spicy and complex it was. Marvelous, considering there are only 11 botanicals in this gin recipe. The name and the wax-sealed bottle are not a gimmick: Old English comes from a 1783 gin recipe, and is made in the oldest pot still in England. Taste the tradition!
