No.3 London Dry Gin
This London-crafted gin comes courtesy of wine & spirit merchant, Berry Bros. & Rudd. Made to their own closely-guarded recipe, No.3 has been created by distillers with over 3 centuries of expertise. A whole lot of experience has been poured into creating this gin, with the recipe taking a year to perfect. The result is something that gin-lovers are likely to love swilling around in a glass, before they start swilling it around their taste buds.
There is that inevitable hit of juniper that hits your tongue, but what really comes through is a citrus tang of grapefruit. Add some to a glass of ice, top with some decent tonic water, a squeeze of lemon, and a garnish of the same - and you're done. This gin stands up to being mixed, and also makes a very bold splash in a Negroni. Ahhhh, the Negroni: 1 measure of No.3 gin, 1 of Campari bitters, 1 of Red Vermouth, a slice of orange and lemon. The result? One very adult drink to be taken seriously and sipped whilst whiling away the evening. For such a serious drink, you need a serious gin, and No.3 definitely steps up to the mark.
