Unveil the Legend: A Deep Dive into Sir Robin of Locksley Gin

Embrace the Spirit of Adventure with a Gin Steeped in History

At The General Wine, we're all about unearthing exceptional gins, and Sir Robin of Locksley Gin certainly fits the bill. This award-winning spirit, hailing from the esteemed Locksley Distilling Co. in Sheffield, England, is a captivating expression that pays homage to the legendary Robin Hood. But beyond its storied namesake, Sir Robin of Locksley Gin boasts a flavour profile that's both intriguing and undeniably delightful.

Aromatic Allure: A Symphony of Botanical Delights

The first encounter with Sir Robin of Locksley Gin is a captivating exploration for the nose. Juniper, the quintessential gin botanical, establishes a firm foundation. However, it doesn't dominate. Instead, it intertwines harmoniously with a delightful medley of other botanicals. Delicate elderflower notes add a touch of floral sweetness, while dandelion whispers earthy intrigue. A burst of citrus emerges, courtesy of the vibrant pink grapefruit, adding a touch of zest that invigorates the senses. As the aroma unfolds further, subtle hints of cassia (a type of cinnamon) emerge, offering a touch of warmth that beautifully complements the other elements.

A Sip of Sherwood Forest: The Flavourful Journey Begins

The initial sip of Sir Robin of Locksley Gin is a revelation. The juniper asserts itself confidently, yet remains smooth and inviting. It quickly gives way to a symphony of flavours. The elderflower's floral character dances on the palate, its sweetness tempered by the earthy depth of dandelion. The pink grapefruit then takes centre stage, delivering a burst of zesty citrus that awakens the taste buds. The cassia emerges subtly, adding a touch of warming spice that lingers on the finish. The overall impression is one of remarkable balance, where each botanical plays its part in creating a truly captivating flavour experience.

The Textural Delight: A Smooth and Sophisticated Spirit

Sir Robin of Locksley Gin boasts a luxuriously smooth texture that elevates the drinking experience. It coats the tongue gently, leaving a pleasant warmth in its wake. This smoothness allows the nuanced flavours to unfold gradually, ensuring a truly captivating journey for the palate.
