Portsmouth Distillery Tudor Gin: A Journey Through Time in a Glass

The Portsmouth Distillery's Tudor Gin isn't just a spirit; it's a captivating exploration of history. Crafted using botanicals discovered on the wreck of King Henry VIII's flagship, the Mary Rose, this gin takes you on a flavour odyssey that bridges the past and present. While Dich Oatley may not be the sole creator or blender behind Portsmouth Distillery's delights, his infectious enthusiasm and dedication are undeniably the lifeblood of the distillery.

Aromatic Adventure: A Tudor Treasure Trove

The first encounter with Tudor Gin is an aromatic adventure. Juniper, the quintessential gin botanical, lays the groundwork with its piney and menthol notes. However, this is no ordinary gin. As you delve deeper, intriguing layers unfold. Earthy tones of dandelion root, a botanical found onboard the Mary Rose, mingle with the subtle sweetness of hazelnuts, creating a foundation of intrigue. A hint of hemp seed adds a touch of grassy intrigue, whetting your appetite for what's to come. But the star of this aromatic show is undoubtedly the juicy dark cherry, emerging with a promise of delightful sweetness.

Tasting the Tudor Times: A Symphony of Flavours

The initial burst of sweetness from the dark cherry on the palate is a delightful surprise. However, it quickly gives way to the unique botanical blend, creating a symphony of flavours. Dandelion root surges forward, offering an earthy and slightly bitter counterpoint to the initial sweetness. This grounding note is then balanced by the smooth, nutty character of hazelnuts. All the while, the ever-present dark cherry dances on the palate, offering bursts of sweet juiciness that linger and entice. The hemp seed adds a subtle grassy note that lingers in the background, adding complexity and intrigue to the overall experience.

The finish of Tudor Gin is as captivating as its aroma and flavour profile. It's long and satisfying, with the earthy dandelion and sweet cherry playing a delightful game of tug-war. The juniper returns subtly, providing a touch of warmth and leaving you wanting to return for another sip.

The Perfect Serve: Unlocking Tudor Gin's Potential

Tudor Gin's complex flavour profile allows it to shine in various serves. Here are a few suggestions to unlock its full potential:

  • The Classic Gin & Tonic: For a timeless experience, combine 50ml of Tudor Gin with 150ml of high-quality tonic water. Garnish with a twist of orange peel or a sprig of rosemary for a touch of herbaceousness that complements the dandelion root.

     
  • The Portsmouth Punch: This refreshing twist on a classic punch is perfect for summer gatherings. Combine 50ml of Tudor Gin with 25ml fresh lemon juice, 25ml sugar syrup, and 125ml of cloudy apple juice. Garnish with a slice of apple and a sprig of mint for an extra visual and flavourful touch.

     
  • The Tudor Martini: For a sophisticated yet unique martini, combine 50ml of Tudor Gin with 25ml dry vermouth. Stir well with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry, a nod to the gin's star botanical.
