The Schtick: This is a gin distilled and released by the Phillips Distilling Company.
Distiller: Phillips Distilling Company
Bottler: Phillips Distilling Company
ABV: 40% ABV
Nose: Ethanol, faint sweetness. Light juniper. Very muted depth beyond ethanol.
Taste: Hot and thin, with lots of pepper, a faint plastic astringency and sugar.
Finish: Short, hot, thin and astringent.
Overall: This is a definite pass in my book, especially comparing it’s competition from some other bargain gins. There was nothing horribly offensive, but it was thin, and carried more heat and astringency than it should have.
Thanks for reading!
