This gin is named after Ralph Dodd, an English civil engineer famous for his attempt to build the first tunnel under the Thames river.
Dodd’s Gin is born with a light, flowery personality, with notes of juniper, cardamom or blackcurrant. The bottle design, pure and elegant, mentions the year 1807, when the cunning mind of Dodd was already forecasting the arrival of Great Spirits. Born assembling two brandies distilled and flavored separately, the first in a small 140 liter copper column named Cristina and the second in an under vacuum operating still named Little Albion, this bio certified London gin is produced starting from juniper and laurels berries, angelica , lemon and honey by the London Distillery Company located in the full center of London since 2011.
• Color: colorless;
• Fragrance: fine and tense, black pepper and nutmeg at the first sight. Awfully impudent and original, it becomes later strongly floral (vetiver, geranium flowers. Then black pepper and peppermint similarly spiced are increasing its floral and spicy nature);
• Taste: smooth and dynamic, the same spices came on the point of the tongue. Suddenly there is a change of scenery: creamy, it makes tastes like an apricot yoghurt. The tasting end is empyreumatic (ashes and cypress), citrus (calisson d’Aix, almonds pastry from Aix-en-Provence) and flowery (orange blossom);
• Aftertaste: tender and mentholated. It goes back to the spiced lands that this gin loves particularly (carnation, star anise cardamom). Then some dry fruits (acajou nuts, almonds) and others at the right ripe stage (pear, peach) anticipate an oily back smell (olives) with some almonds scents. The empty glass keeps the fragrance and taste impressions, flowery and spicy (wallflower).
