Bilberry gin is claimed to be the most luxurious gin ever made. Every drop through their patented Luxuriating Machine seven times before the elegentation jiggulation process even begins. Prior to bottling, every batch is passed through the sophistication nipple and tested to make sure it scores 99.9.In non independent testing 4 people responded "holy s! That's luxurious!
The botanicals: Juniper, coriander seed, Angelica root, lemon and orange peel, elderflower, bucchu leaf and bilberries.
On the nose, my initial reaction is a reminder of port. It's rich in fruit whilst the piney juniper also comes through.
To taste, initial rich fruits and a smooth almost chocolate flavour before a more subtle citrus flavour comes through with warming spices. Incredibly smooth, warming and fruity.
For my serve, I've added a light tonic. The fruit and citrus is lifted and stands out well with the tonic and the finish is slightly dry. I added a twist of lemon peel and a couple of blueberries. Bloody lush!
Lovely fruity gin which compliments Lemonade and ice very well - the smell is devine
I absolutely love BDG, by far my favourite and it’s the first time I’ve tried the bilberry edition. It’s absolutely the best thing. I was worried that it’d be really sweet, as I’m not usually a fan of flavoured spirits, but it just has a great flavour. Perfect with a couple of slices of lemon. Thanks! Will be buying again
