"At 90 proof Fords Gin holds in a lot of flavor. When tasting, we recommend a splash of water to release the flavours. You'll notice the high oil content just by looking in the glass. The coriander, citrus and florals really come to life. It's also a good way to see how Fords gin will show in a cocktail." – Simon Ford, The 86 Co.
Nose: Juniper, coriander and angelica root up front with developing layers of citrus, jasmine, and hints of vanilla in the back. Very pleasant on the nose, bright, and aromatic. Front of Palate: Light sweetness on tip of the tongue. Gentle introduction of the botanicals to follow. Notes of orris and angelica roots. Mid-palate: Prominent mid-palate presence, with juniper oils on the center tongue and full aroma on top palate. Citrus oils excite the side palate beautifully. Under tongue stays dry yet animated. Excellent mid-palate structure to serve as base for mixing. Complexity: High. Body or Mouth Feel: Medium body with rather fresh mouth feel. Dryness: Dry. Finish: Long, lingering finish of grapefruit rind and juniper with a balance of the floral notes.
