Sacred Gin: A Deep Dive into a London Dry Masterpiece

For the discerning gin enthusiast, Sacred Gin stands as a beacon of quality and innovation. This exquisite London Dry gin, meticulously crafted in Highgate, London, boasts a complex and flavourful profile that has captivated taste buds around the world.

This in-depth exploration dives into the essence of Sacred Gin, dissecting its intricate flavour profile, offering expert serving suggestions, and guiding you through a journey of discovery for this exceptional spirit.

Unveiling the Botanical Symphony

Sacred Gin is an orchestra of meticulously selected botanicals, each playing a vital role in the harmonious whole. The base spirit, a neutral grain alcohol, provides the foundation upon which the botanical tapestry unfolds.

Juniper, the quintessential gin botanical, forms the backbone of Sacred Gin. However, Sacred goes beyond the expected, incorporating a symphony of other botanicals including:

  • Spice: Warmer notes of coriander seed, angelica root, and grains of paradise add depth and complexity.
  • Citrus: Zesty brightness is brought forth by grapefruit peel, lemon peel, and bergamot.
  • Floral: Delicate floral hints emerge from lavender and iris root.
  • Earthy: Orris root and angelica root contribute subtle earthy characteristics.

These botanicals are meticulously steeped in the neutral grain alcohol in a traditional copper pot still. This slow and gentle process allows for the full extraction of each botanical's essence, ensuring a well-rounded and flavourful spirit.

A Tasting Journey for the Senses

Pour yourself a generous measure of Sacred Gin and embark on a captivating tasting adventure.

On the Nose: The initial aroma presents a burst of juniper, intertwined with refreshing citrus notes of grapefruit and lemon. As the spirit opens up, subtle hints of spice, particularly coriander seed, emerge, followed by delicate floral whispers of lavender. A touch of earthiness lingers in the background, adding intrigue to the overall bouquet.

On the Palate: The first sip delivers a wave of juniper, invigorating and clean. The citrus notes from the nose translate beautifully onto the palate, offering a burst of zesty freshness. The warmth of coriander seed builds gently, balanced by the subtle sweetness of angelica root and orris root. The floral aspects are more subdued on the taste, adding a touch of elegance. The finish is long and lingering, with the juniper and citrus notes leaving a pleasant dryness on the tongue.

The Art of Serving Sacred Gin

The versatility of Sacred Gin allows it to shine in a multitude of cocktails. Here are some expert serving suggestions to unlock the full potential of this exceptional spirit:

  • The Perfect Gin & Tonic:  This timeless combination allows the gin to take centre stage.  Fill a copa glass with large ice cubes. Add 50ml of Sacred Gin and top with a premium tonic water, ideally one with a light quinine content. Garnish with a wedge of grapefruit or a twist of lemon peel to accentuate the citrus notes.
  • Aromatic Martini:  For a sophisticated and dry martini, stir 60ml of Sacred Gin with 10ml of dry vermouth in a mixing glass filled with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
  • Floral Fizz:  Embrace the floral notes of Sacred Gin with this refreshing twist. Combine 50ml of Sacred Gin, 20ml of elderflower liqueur, 20ml of fresh lemon juice, and a dash of sugar syrup in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and double strain into a champagne flute. Top with chilled Champagne and garnish with a sprig of lavender.
