Martin Miller's Reformed Dry Gin: A Refreshingly Unique Gin Experience

Martin Miller's Reformed Dry Gin stands out from the crowd. This award-winning spirit offers a distinctive flavour profile that challenges the traditional juniper-forward character of gin. If you're looking for a gin that's fresh, zesty, and surprisingly smooth, then look no further.

Aromatic Delights

The first impression of Martin Miller's Reformed Dry Gin is one of invigorating freshness. Unlike gins dominated by juniper, here the juniper takes a backseat, allowing a delightful medley of citrus and herbaceous notes to take centre stage. The aroma is led by a burst of zesty lemon and lime, thanks to the use of lemon and lime oils. These citrus notes are beautifully complemented by a subtle hint of cucumber, adding a touch of coolness and a summery vibe.

On the Palate

The initial sip of Martin Miller's Reformed Dry Gin is a revelation. The juniper berry, the cornerstone of gin, is present but gentle, offering a subtle warmth in the background. The citrus takes centre stage, with a burst of zesty lemon and lime flavours that dance on the tongue.  A touch of sweetness emerges briefly, hinting at floral notes before giving way to a pleasing bitterness derived from orange pith and pine. This bitterness adds complexity and prevents the gin from becoming one-dimensional. The finish is incredibly smooth and clean, thanks in part to the use of pristine Icelandic spring water. The water not only dilutes the spirit to its bottling strength of 40% ABV but also helps to round out the flavours and create a lingering freshness.

Botanical Breakdown

The unique flavour profile of Martin Miller's Reformed Dry Gin is achieved through a careful selection of botanicals. Alongside the juniper berries, which provide the foundation, the gin includes:

  • Citrus: Lemon and lime oils for a burst of zesty freshness.
  • Cucumber: A small amount of cucumber adds a subtle coolness and a summery character.
  • Classic Gin Botanicals: The recipe incorporates other traditional gin botanicals, though their specific details are kept secret, that contribute to the overall complexity and warmth of the spirit.

Crafting the Perfect Serve

Martin Miller's Reformed Dry Gin's versatility shines through in its ability to be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Here are some suggestions to get you started:

  • The Classic Gin & Tonic: For a simple yet refreshing serve, pair 50ml of Martin Miller's Reformed Dry Gin with 150ml of high-quality Indian tonic water. Garnish with a wedge of lime or a twist of lemon peel to enhance the citrus notes. Experiment with different tonic waters to find your perfect match.
  • The Reformed Spritz: This contemporary twist on the classic Aperol Spritz is perfect for summer gatherings. Combine 50ml of Martin Miller's Reformed Dry Gin, 30ml of Aperol, 20ml of fresh lemon juice, and top with prosecco. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary for an extra touch of sophistication.
  • The Cucumber Collins: For a gin cocktail with a refreshing twist, muddle a few slices of cucumber in a shaker with 50ml of Martin Miller's Reformed Dry Gin, 20ml of fresh lemon juice, and 15ml of simple syrup. Shake well with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a cucumber slice.

In Conclusion

Martin Miller's Reformed Dry Gin is a breath of fresh air in the world of gin. Its focus on citrus and cucumber notes alongside a gentle juniper presence creates a unique and delightful flavour profile.  Whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in a creative cocktail, this gin is sure to impress.
