Review #1665 | Gin Review #55

Distiller: Apothecary Beverage Company

Bottler: Apothecary Beverage Company

Brand: Chemist Spirits

Selection: N/A

ABV: 57% ABV

Age: NA


Nose: Oh wow – this is really interesting. Much more complex on the nose, really full bodied. Ginger, pepper, honey, cinnamon, lovely rich praline. Hint of juniper. Seriously sniffable.

Taste: Sweet, incredibly rich on the palate. Decadent honey, citrus, lime, pepper and honey. Powerful juniper steps in with some ginger, cassia, almond and orange zest. Nothing hides here, ethanol included, but the profile works.

Finish: Long, powerful and bold. Nothing fades quickly, nor meekly. Sweet orange, pepper, ginger, sage, cinnamon and nutmeg carries long and rich, with a hint of juniper to keep things interesting.

Overall: This is really standout. Between the unique additions to the recipe and the elevated proof, this bottling is a rockstar.

Thanks for reading!
