Willams Chase Elegant Crisp Gin
Welcome to Day 1 of #GinMonth as I review the Williams Chase Elegant Crisp Gin.
The official blurb for this gin reads as "We press our organically grown cider apples, before fermenting and distilling them into our Naked Chase apple vodka. We then infuse eleven carefully selected wild botanicals including elderflowers, lemon and orange peel, hops and Bramley apple and our naturally pure water taken from the aquifer that runs underneath our orchards.
"The result is our full bodied, sharp, yet fruity gin with tears and true provenance.
"On the nose, fresh aromas of juniper, citrus fruits and spices. Elegant, crisp with juniper and green fruits upfront, followed by warm spices and earthy undertones on the palate.
"Designed to create the ultimate Gin Martini, enjoy with a slice of apple."
I have totally fell for this Gin, it's clean fresh apple and citrus mixes well with a hint of juniper floral notes, this is one I will definitely have in my drinks cupboard permanently.
If you feel the same pop on over to Master of Malt and pick one up now.
Huge thanks to Williams Chase for the very generous sample.
(straight) This really doesn't have that really floral note that i expect from gin, there's juniper there for sure but it's less botanical and flora and more sweet and fruity, stewed bramley apples and lime zest come through strong here.
(with tonic) The tonic really wipes out the strong flavours on the nose making it very much subtle fresh fruits with once again apple and lime being the major notes along with fresh juniper creeping in.
(straight) more floral here the juniper coming out stronger, quite acetoney straight and not as fruity/citrus as i the nose although there is some apple coming through along with pear juice.
(with tonic) oh very very fresh lovely and fruity, slightly bitter bramley apples, with key lime pie and haribo tangtastics, lovely stuff
(straight) fresh and spritely with mouthwatering fruit and citrus bitterness
(with tonic) fresh and fruity, very easy to drink.
