Distilled in England and blended in Iceland, the Martin Miller’s Gin is a small batch, pot stilled gin, made much like a malt whiskey. Receiving a 93 rating from the Wine Enthusiast, perhaps the genius in this gin is its subtlety. Made with juniper, coriander, angelica, orange peel and lemon peel, the distilled gin is then sent to Iceland to be blended with what is said to be the “purest, softest water on earth.” This soft water helps to have a soft mouth feel where the drinker can focus more on the flavor of the gin. Quite simply, this might be the best gin we’ve ever tasted. Drinking it neat, Martin Miller’s Gin is one of the best spirits in the world. While most gins are harsh and overly piney, the Martin Miller’s Gin is subtle, smooth and only slightly piney. Keep in mind, smooth doesn’t always mean something is better, but in this case it certainly does.
The Martin Miller’s Gin Tasting Note:
The scent is a sharp citrus with subtle pine notes. Smooth with good warmth, a good citrus flavor and more citrus than pine, Martin Miller’s is slightly sweet and slightly thicker than most gins. With a soft and sweet mouth feel, this is an excellent gin and will make anyone a gin fan. Martin Miller’s Small Batch Pot Stilled Gin is not only one of the best gins in the world; it’s simply one of the best spirits in the world period.
